If You Have Insurance
Dealing with insurance companies can be a daunting task. Listed below are some tips to help ease the difficulty of that process.
Our therapists are limited in the insurance plans they accept, so please verify with your therapist if they accept your insurance plan prior to your first session. If so, please upload the information from your insurance card into your client portal before your first session. Please do not upload information if your plan is not accepted. You will be considered self-pay without insurance.
Some insurance companies or employers occasionally contract with mental health carriers that differ from the medical health insurance plan. It is suggested that you always contact your insurance company to verify if your therapist is considered an in-network provider.
If you are self-pay, you may still be able to get reimbursed by your insurance company if you have out-of-network benefits. You will have to file these claims on your own. We will provide you with a superbill to submit to your plan.
It is best to contact your insurance company before your first session to understand your benefits. The Customer Service number is generally located on the back of your card. Please obtain the following information:
- Amount of co-payment
- If you have a deductible, find out how much it is and how much has been satisfied to date
- Number of sessions covered and time frame for coverage
- If you will be seeking couples counseling please ask your insurance provider if you have this benefit.
- If you are seeking online therapy, please ask if that is a covered benefit.
- If you have out-of-network benefits, find out the procedure for filing claims.
You are responsible for all fees or services not covered or reimbursed by your insurance company, including but not limited to deductibles, co-payments, missed appointments, late cancellations, correspondence/reports, and court testimony. Please see your therapist’s informed consent for specifics regarding this issue.
Right to a Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers, including therapists, need to give patients/clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance, an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. The Good Faith Estimate will provide information on your expected out of pocket costs. You should expect to receive your Good Faith Estimate at least one day prior to your first appointment with us.
Make an Appointment
If your relationship is in distress, don’t wait to make an appointment. Research has shown that it usually takes six years from the first sign of trouble in a relationship to the commencement of couples therapy. While help is available at any stage of the relationship, it is wise to intervene early.
