Do You Take Insurance?
No, we do not. The practice does not partner with any insurance companies due to various associated restrictions and policies.
WHAT ABOUT OUT OF NETWORK COVERAGE?
You may try to file your own claims. You are welcome to contact your insurance company to ask them what coverage you have for out of network mental health care services and if they cover 50 min psychotherapy sessions. You may also provide them with:
1.) Our group NPI number
2.) Our Tax ID number
3.) CPT Code (service code type)
4.) Diagnosis Code (request from your therapist after your intake)
Please request #'s 1-3 above from our admin to confirm they will reimburse your claims that you file with them. You may find our contact information and address in the footer below to submit to them as well. The admin will adjust your account settings in order to automate Superbills that will be emailed to you monthly.
Taking this route often means you may need to seek prior authorization from your carrier before each session. Be sure to ask them if prior-authorization is required on your policy and if they have a limit of sessions per year.
WHY DO MANY PEOPLE WITH INSURANCE CHOOSE NOT TO USE IT FOR MENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICES?
You will be required to be assessed for and diagnosed with a mental health condition in order to receive reimbursement, no matter if using in or out of network providers. Your claim will be rejected without a mental health condition diagnostic code assigned by your therapist. The diagnosis requirement for coverage will be true of any practice you use your insurance at. This diagnosis will become part of your permanent medical records. This reality can impact clients differently and implications should be carefully considered.
