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 a 50 minute session is $175.  This same fee applies for all services.  My fee is due at the time of service.
