Insurance

 

At the moment, I do not accept insurance. If you have an insurance plan, such as a PPO, a monthly receipt for services can be provided to you to submit for reimbursement. Depending on your insurance plan, insurance companies may reimburse 20-80% of the session fee.

 

If you are considering using your insurance for mental health coverage, there are benefits (e.g. part of your therapy bill will be reimbursed) but there are also risks (e.g. loss of confidentiality and loss of control of treatment). For detailed information and education on why it may be important to educate yourself before utilizing your insurance coverage, please see the following links:

If you decide to go ahead and utilize your insurance, check your health coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

 

-Do I have mental health insurance benefits?

-What is my deductible and has it been met?

-How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?

-What is the coverage amount per therapy session?

-Is approval required from my primary care physician?
