If you have an out-of-network provider plan (PPO plan), I will provide you with an invoice, so you may seek reimbursement.
Please note there are a few limitations when using your insurance to cover counseling or psychotherapy fees. Often times, insurance companies have restrictions that significantly limit the type and/or length of treatment. Insurance companies may also request information about your treatment that could potentially impact your privacy and health record.
I recommend calling your insurance company to inquire about your policy and “explanation of benefits”. You may want to clarify some specifics, like:
- What is your deductible? How much money do you have to pay until you meet your deductible?
- Is counseling covered under your plan?
- What are the maximum amount of sessions per year or maximum amount reimbursed per year?
- What is the amount of reimbursement per session? For example, what would your insurance company pay on a $120 session (i.e. percentage)?
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
