Do you take insurance?
There are a number of reasons why some people prefer to pay for therapy privately. Some people want to ensure complete confidentiality, while others do not have clinical or “medical necessity” (no criteria that meets DSM-5 for a diagnosis) reasons for seeking out therapy, which may result in a their claims being denied for payment.
I am Out of Network with insurances, which means that you pay out-of-pocket for services. Most clients do check for out-of-network benefits that may allow them to receive partial reimbursements for mental health services. You will be provided with a monthly “superbill” that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Kindly note that we do not work directly with your insurance carrier.
Medicare and Medicaid plans– If you are a Medicare or Medicaid recipient, kindly note that Medicare and Medicaid regulations do not allow for out of network claims submission. Therefore, you should expect to pay for sessions fully out-of-pocket.
Couples counseling is not typically covered by insurance. Please inquire with your insurance carrier if you are interested in submitting for reimbursement.
I would rather call insurance myself- what do I ask?
If you plan on using your out of network reimbursement benefits, we recommend that you contact your health insurance provider and ask the following questions:
- Do I have out-of-network coverage?
- Does my out-of-network health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
- What dollar amount or percentage of each psychotherapy session is reimbursed or covered? These codes may help you:
- Initial/First Intake Appointment: CPT Code 90791
- Ongoing Weekly Appointments: CPT Code 90837 or CPT Code 90834
- How many outpatient mental health or psychotherapy sessions per calendar year are covered by my health plan?
- Do I need a pre-approval, pre-authorization, or referral from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
