I accept payments via credit card, HAS, check, or cash.
I am an out of network provider. This means that I do not bill insurance companies directly. Your counseling services may be eligible for reimbursement through out-of-network benefits, medical spending or health care savings accounts. I will provide you with appropriate documentation, which you can then submit to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement.
The following is a list of questions to ask your provider for possible reimbursement for out-of-network coverage:
Do I have mental health benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many mental health sessions per calendar year does my insurance plan cover?
How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network mental health provider?
How do I obtain reimbursement for therapy with an out-of-network provider?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Benefits of Paying Privately/“Out of Pocket”
It is your choice whether you’d like to involve your insurance company in your mental health care.
Many clients choose not to involve their insurance company in their mental health care for the following reasons:
Health insurance may limit the number of sessions and the type of therapy.
In order for therapy services to be covered under insurance, a mental health diagnosis must be made. This then becomes a part of your permanent health care record. This may lead to limitations such as denial for quality life insurance or health insurance in the future.
In most cases, you may be paying out of pocket since a deductible has to be met.
