Do We Accept Insurance
We are out-of-network with all insurance companies. If you desire and request, your therapist will supply you with a monthly statement (superbill) that you can submit to your insurance company for possible out-of-network reimbursement.
Below are the five main reasons we choose to remain out-of-network with insurance companies.
- Clinicians who are in-network providers are required to share confidential treatment information (i.e. diagnoses, treatment plans, progress notes, etc.) with insurance companies. Furthermore, the information required by the insurance company will remain on your permanent health record. This often has future implications regarding hindering job opportunities, diagnostic or treatment information being utilized in a law suit, possible denial for life insurance, and potentially limiting future health insurance coverage.
- Insurance companies will only pay for what they determine to be “medically necessary”. Unfortunately, this means that clients without a diagnosis or a less severe diagnosis, will find that their insurance company will either deny the treatment, or at minimum, severely limit the number of allowed sessions. Additionally, with increased frequency, insurance companies are auditing clients’ medical records and denying previously accepted claims. The client then occasionally has an unexpected balance due to the insurance company mandating a refund for previously distributed payments.
- Insurance companies are more frequently limiting the duration of the sessions. For instance, instead of a typical hour for a session, insurance companies are encouraging thirty minute sessions or at most forty-five minute sessions.
- It has become considerably more difficult in obtaining authorization for treatment and can be a lengthy process. This can cause treatment to be inconsistent and disjointed, and can cause unexpected financial burdens and discrepancies.
- With growing regularity, numerous insurance plans either deny or strongly dissuade from couples and/or family counseling.
