I view therapy as in investment in yourself. I accept private pay (you are welcome to use HSA funds) as well as in-network BCBS PPO benefits, and am also happy to provide superbills for out-of-network benefits. To ensure that I am able to focus on what is most helpful for my clients and their concerns, rather than insurance requirements (e.g., diagnosis, specific techniques in sessions, time limits), I am not in-network with the majority of insurance companies. If you are using BCBS PPO benefits, I will submit those claims for you. If you wish to submit for another insurance, I am happy to supply you with the documentation needed to file a claim for possible out-of-network reimbursement. You are responsible for the fee ($170/session) at the time of your session.
If you plan to benefits through your insurance company, please speak with them prior to scheduling a consultation with me. I would be happy to work with you, though I respect your financial needs and understand that insurance coverage and reimbursement may be important. Your insurance company’s phone number can be found on the back of your insurance card. Questions that you may wish to ask your insurance company include:
-Do my benefits cover mental health?
-If using in-network:
-Is Steffanie Grossman, PhD, considered in-network?
-What is my co-pay?
-Are telehealth behavioral health services covered?
-If using out-of-network:
-If I have mental health benefits, do my benefits include out-of-network providers?
-What portion of the amount that I pay will I be reimbursed upon seeing an out-of-network mental health provider?
-Do I need pre-approval or a referral before obtaining out-of-network mental health services to be reimbursed?
-How and where do I submit my bills for out-of-network mental health services?
