We do not accept insurance. You may wonder why? If insurance companies are paying for sessions, then they get to dictate the terms of therapy. They come from a problem-focused standpoint. They require a mental health diagnosis, and the moment clients don’t meet “medical necessity,” which is something the insurance companies define, then it’s time for therapy to end. But what about people who had a problem, they got better, and now, they just want to work on personal growth? Or, what about people who don’t meet criteria for a mental health diagnosis? If insurance is involved, these people wouldn’t be eligible for therapy.
Here is the bottom line. We like our clients to be in control of their treatment. We want them to be able to get what they need instead of an insurance company dictating the terms of therapy. Therefore, we don’t accept insurance and place the control of therapy directly in our clients’ hands.
But I really want to use my insurance benefits…
Some insurance plans carry Out-of-Network (OON) benefits. You need to check with your insurance company to see if this is part of your specific plan. For clients with OON benefits, we can supply a “Superbill,” which is basically a receipt that shows exactly what you paid for sessions. Clients can then submit their Superbill to their insurance company and be reimbursed for a portion of the cost. Clients with OON benefits are routinely reimbursed by their insurance company when they present a Superbill. However, we can not guarantee insurance companies will reimburse for sessions, and clients are responsible for the cost of sessions.
That sounds complicated. Can someone help me?
For clients that need a little help understanding their OON benefits, we recommend a company called Better. Better can facilitate the entire process of using your OON benefits for a small fee. You can check out their website at getbetter.co.
Our clinicians don’t check benefits or interact with insurance companies on our clients’ behalves. Unfortunately, that can be very time consuming, and we need to be spending our time in sessions doing what we really love – therapy.
We accept cash, check, Health Savings Account cards, and all major credit cards as forms of payment.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you will be charged a $50.00 fee. We do make exceptions for emergencies and sudden illness.
