I do not accept reimbursement from insurance providers. This is for a number of reasons:
Insurance often doesn’t cover the services I provide, and most insurance payers only cover sessions that are 45 minutes in length. My clients benefit from 60-90 minute sessions to explore the issues they are facing in more depth and more effectively work toward solutions. The last thing I want to do is rush you out the door!
Insurance requires that I give you a diagnosis of a mental illness that will remain on your record and can negatively impact your confidentiality, your premiums in the future, and your freedom to determine the treatment plan that best meets your needs. I don’t believe in pathologizing normal life experiences and struggles, or that a person needs a diagnosis to benefit from therapy.
That being said, if you would like to submit for reimbursement of my services through your out-of-network benefits, I can provide you with paperwork that you can use to do so. To find out if your insurance offers out of network benefits, call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask how much your plan pays for out of network therapists and if you have a deductible to meet. You may also use an FSA or Health Savings Account to pay for therapy services.
If the fee is an issue for you, please give me call and I am happy to discuss sliding scale options.
