Payments and Billing
Payments are required at time of service. We are in network with most insurance companies, but those deciding to pay with cash, or out of network benefits are welcome to do so. For those who do not have insurance, or those with high deductable plans, on a limited basis, we do offer a reduced fee.
Many people choose to use their insurance benefits to cover mental health counseling. Your provider often covers these services in full as they do with other medical services. It is important you understand the benefits as well as the drawbacks of using insurance to cover therapy.
You will likely pay less for your counseling services (often it is the same copay or coinsurance you pay for other medical services) and money spent applies to your deductible
Insurance requires a mental health diagnosis to pay for services and this diagnosis becomes a part of your medical record,
Insurance companies have access to your confidential client record so complete privacy cannot be guaranteed. While the insurance companies typically only access these files for determining if these services are beneficial and necessary to you, they do have permission to access them at any point in time.
