Your cost will depend on your individual insurance plan. We will check for deductibles, copays/coinsurance prior to your appointment.
We are in-network with several insurance companies but you may opt to privately pay for the following reasons:
Information you need to know if you are considering using your health insurance to pay for counseling:
* Before your claim will be covered, insurance companies require that you be given a “mental health diagnosis”, that may remain on your medical record indefinitely. There have been occasions when a clinical diagnosis to your insurance has resulted in persons experiencing difficulty in obtaining life, medical, or disability insurance.
* If you have a high deductible insurance plan, you will be paying for services out of pocket even through an in-network provider.
* The insurance company will have access to (all) sensitive information shared (i.e. sexual history and drug use). If confidentiality is important to you, it may be compromised by using your insurance.
* The insurance company has control over how often, how long, and even IF you may see a (particular) therapist, independent of using your insurance benefits.
For out-of-network insurances, we will provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance for reimbursement upon request.
If you need guidance submitting a receipt to your insurance, we would be glad to walk you through the initial steps. If this sounds overwhelming, it is actually a very common practice among mental health professionals.
You may be eligible for partial or full reimbursement.
