FAQ's about Insurance and Fees

Are you in-network with my insurance company?  I am not in-network with any insurance companies.  If you would like to find someone in your insurance network, I recommend contacting your insurance company directly for a list of local therapists they contract with.

If I have a PPO Insurance plan, can I work with you and use my insurance?  If you would like to use your insurance and you have a PPO plan, I am happy to provide a superbill that you can then submit to your insurance for reimbursement.     

How much will my insurance reimburse me?

You will need to contact them directly to find this out.  I recommend asking them the following questions to determine what they will reimburse you:

1.  What percentage do you cover for outpatient psychotherapy with out-of-network therapists?

2.  Do I have to meet my deductible before you reimburse and if so, what is my deductible and how much of it have I met so far this year?  When does my deductible reset?  

Will you contact my insurance company for me and work directly with them?  No. I don’t have an insurance biller and I don’t want to be one — I prefer to focus my practice on client care. I am happy to provide a superbill and if your insurance contacts me for billing related questions, I am happy to talk to them. However, I will not contact your insurance company or work directly with them.

What if I don't want a mental health diagnosis in my insurance file and I want to use my insurance?  Please understand that if you do use insurance, I will have to provide a diagnosis code to your insurance company in order for them to cover services.
