Insurance Agent

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 would be fully responsible to file your claims. You are welcome to contact your insurance company to ask them about what coverage you have for out of network mental health care services and if they cover Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist Associates. You may also provide them with your potential therapist's NPI number (please request from our admin) to confirm they will reimburse your claims that you file with them. You will also want to request the service code type from our admin to provide to your insurance company. 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.

 

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 the 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.

WHERE CAN I FIND A THERAPIST ON MY INSURANCE?

Consider visiting your insurance company's member website and searching their directory of mental health care providers. Another way is to use an online provider search engine that has insurance filters built in, such as:
