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. I do accept limited BCBS, which I will submit for you. If you choose to submit for another insurance, I am considered an out-of-network mental health provider. I am happy to supply you with the documentation needed to file a claim with your insurance for possible reimbursement. You are responsible for the fee ($170/session) at the time of your session. Depending on your insurance plan, you may be reimbursed a percentage of that fee through your insurance company.
If you plan to use out-of-network 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 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?
