Insurance

I currently do not accept insurance.

Why?

 

By investing in your health through private pay,

you receive a more individualized therapy experience.

What does that mean?

You choose your therapist, your method of treatment, and length of treatment.

You don't need a diagnosis to receive help and support.

Your privacy and confidentiality remain intact.

If you would like to receive services through your insurance, please contact your insurance company and request a list of in-network mental health providers. If your insurance company accepts Superbills (a receipt of services paid for out-of-pocket), I am happy to provide one for you to submit to your carrier for reimbursement. Please see the information below about involving your insurance company in your treatment.

  • A specific medical/mental health diagnosis must be documented and provided to the insurance carrier before they will pay for your counseling. This diagnosis will be part of your permanent medical record.

  • Insurance carriers require details regarding your reason for counseling before processing your claim.

  • Based on your situation, managed care companies will decide if counseling is medically necessary, what specific types of treatment are approved, and how many counseling sessions you are allotted.

    • For example, an insurance company may not consider bereavement a valid reason to attend therapy. If they do, they may only allow 6-8 therapy sessions, when in reality, someone who is grieving often benefits from support longer than that.

  • Insurance companies occasionally conduct audits, which require mental health providers to give the insurance company a client’s complete clinical record, including session notes and other sensitive information.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

 

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

 

Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

 

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

 

Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
