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?
Is there someone who can submit to my insurance for me and deal with it so that I don't have to? If the idea of submitting a superbill feels like too much of a hassle to you, there is an app called "Better" that will handle submitting to insurance for you and even follow up on your claims until your insurance pays their portion. I have no affiliation with them whatsoever but I have heard positive things about the service they offer. Please note, they do charge a small fee for this service (a percentage of the money received from your insurance).
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.
What is your fee? My fee for individual therapy is $200/50 min session. My fee for couples therapy is $250/session. My fee is due at the time of service.
