Insurance and Fees
If you would like to use your insurance, I am an in-network provider with several insurance companies, including:
Please complete the paperwork I send you to let me know:
- Your Insurance company
- The customer service number on the back of the card
- Your member and group IDs
- Your (and the main subscriber’s) birth dates
- Your billing address associated with your insurance.
Out of Network
Many clients are able to use their out-of-network benefits for counseling services and get reimbursed by their insurance company. I will provide you with a copy of a superbill which you can submit for possible reimbursement. I also encourage you to verify your out-of-network benefits prior to your session. If you have access to HRA/FSA/HSA funds, I accept those as forms of payment. My full fee is due from you on the day of our appointment.
What to be aware of
All insurance companies require some personal information to process a claim, including a mental health diagnosis. Once clinical information is provided to the company it becomes part of your permanent record, available to anyone with authorized access such as a future employer. This could also affect your ability to buy private medical coverage in the future as past mental health diagnoses and treatment might be considered a pre-existing condition.
Please note that benefits are an agreement between you and your insurance company. I cannot guarantee any coverage or reimbursement. If you have eligibility concerns or questions, you should contact your insurance provider directly.
If you choose to pay for your sessions yourself, you can decide how many sessions you’d like and I can protect your privacy and base treatment on your individual needs, rather than the financial wishes of the insurance companies. Please see Frequently Asked Questions for more information about privacy.
