Finances should not be a barrier for obtaining support. I do my best to work with people and their circumstances. If you do not have insurance but are interested in working with me, please contact me to discuss your options.
Being an out of network provider gives you and your therapist some flexibility.
- You and your therapist determine the duration of therapy.
- You can obtain supportive therapy on its own or beyond meeting your initial therapeutic goals.
- Limited information is required for you to receive reimbursement from your insurance (e.g., date of service, fees paid and diagnosis).
Getting Reimbursed from your Insurance
When you work with a therapist that is considered an out-of-network provider you must take the following steps to get reimbursed.
- You are responsible for paying for services the day they are rendered.
- Contact your health insurance to confirm that they will reimburse you if you were to see an out-of-network provider. Most PPO plans will reimburse a portion but every insurance plan differs.
- The ratio of reimbursement depends on the insurance but most insurance plans reimburse 50-80% of the session fee. Upon paying for services, the therapist will provide you with a receipt for your payment (e.g., a superbill).
- Please note, the superbill must include your diagnosis and this will become a part of your record with your insurance company.
- People are usually alarmed when they realize that insurances need to see a diagnosis. However, a diagnosis in many cases is “reason for services” which could be a relationship break up, loss of a loved one, and other type of relational concerns.
- You will submit a copy of this receipt to your insurance and wait for reimbursement.
