What makes Frida different
Frida provides top-quality care for ADHD, at an accessible price, with little turnaround time — the exact opposite of what finding ADHD care in Canada is usually like.

FAQs about pricing
I heard Frida offers financial assistance. How does it work?
It's true. Frida has a financial assistance program available, where our company will subsidize the costs of your diagnosis for you.
The best way to learn more about our program and its requirements is to contact our support team at email@example.com. They will provide you with more information, and let you know the income thresholds for application and what you need to do to apply for for financial assistance.
In addition, Frida will be introducing the ability to split your diagnostic assessment fee into 6 equal payments with no interest in March 2023.
Do I need to enroll in continuous care?
Continuous care is an option service from Frida that provides ongoing clinician appointments, medication management (including free delivery where applicable), and unlimited messaging with our care team for just $29 a month with no commitments.
While continuous care isn't mandatory, it's a crucial part of what we offer, and we strongly encourage anyone who receives an ADHD diagnosis to join. Following up on your diagnosis with the right treatment, provided by people that really get ADHD, is the best way to create the change you're looking for.
Those who receive a diagnosis through Frida will be auto-enrolled into our Continuous Care 30 days after their initial appointment. You may cancel your enrolment at any time.
How often will I meet with my clinician?
After you’ve completed your initial assessment and been prescribed treatment from your Frida clinician, they’ll continue to meet with you monthly to ensure your treatment is going well, or if your treatment plan requires changes.
Once you've reached a stable state with your treatment, you’ll continue to meet your clinician every 3 months.
How much does Frida cost?
Frida provides two complementary services — diagnostic assessments and continuous care — that have separate costs.
A diagnostic assessment with a Frida clinician costs a one-time fee of $599. If you're diagnosed with ADHD, anxiety, or depression, you have the option to sign up for continuous care for $29 a month, which includes regular appointments with your clinician, subsidized medication with free at-home delivery, and unlimited messaging with the Frida care team.
Frida is covered by private insurers that have an eligible health spending account.
If you need financial support to pay for your diagnostic assessment fee, contact us and we'll help.
When will I be charged for my Frida membership?
You will be charged for your Frida membership 30 days after your first appointment with Frida if you receive a diagnosis and medication-based treatment plan.
Is medication covered under Frida?
Medication (if prescribed) is not included, but private/public insurance and Frida financial assistance lower the cost of medication.
We'll work with you to find the lowest cost option.
How much do ADHD medications cost?
The cost of medications varies. We can help you lower the cost of almost all the first-line recommended treatments for ADHD in Canada, as per the Canadian ADHD Practice Guidelines.
For people with private insurance, we can usually help you access medication for $0 to $10 per month.
For people without private insurance, the cost is roughly $75 per month.
Are medication deliveries available everywhere?
Unfortunately, Frida is unable to deliver medications outside of the Greater Calgary and Great Toronto areas for the time being.
Our regional couriers were not meeting the standards we set out and as such, Affirming Care Pharmacy is working to find a new regional shipping solution that provides a better patient experience. We hope to resume deliveries for all patients in the future.
Patients that live outside of the Greater Calgary and Great Toronto areas will now receive their ADHD medications from their local pharmacy.
How can Frida help me save money on medication?
One of the best benefits of Frida's continuous care membership is access to medication at greatly reduced costs.
Over 70% of Frida patients pay less than $20 a month for their medication and 50% pay $0 per month.
If you're prescribed the brand name version of Vyvanse — one of the most common prescriptions for ADHD — Frida is able to offer a greatly discounted price through our continuous care program.
If you're prescribed a branded medication (such as Concerta or Adderall), the Frida care team will help you find and access co-pay assistance programs from pharmaceutical manufacturers to help you save more.
Does Frida accept private insurance?
You will be able to claim Frida's diagnosis & treatment costs if your private insurance plan offers a health spending account.
However, the cost is not covered by private insurance plans that do not have a specific health spending account.
Who is Frida's partner pharmacy?
Our partner pharmacy in Alberta is Affirming Care Pharmacy.
