The Self-Pay Advantage
I do not take insurance, but I can provide you with paperwork for reimbursement from your insurance company if you have out-of-network benefits.
Some considerations include:
Privacy. Insurance companies require disclosure of highly personal information, the confidentiality and privacy of which cannot be guaranteed.
Clinical independence. Managed care can be more involved in determining the details of therapy than some people like. If you want the flexibility to choose the modalities we use, the length of your sessions, and how often we meet, self-pay is the way to go.
Wellness perspective. You might be seeking therapy for non-medical reasons, such as personal growth.
To Use Out-of-Network Benefits
Check your out-of-network benefits: These are typically in the Summary of Benefits that is included in a member information packet or on your insurance company website
Call your insurance company to verify: The best way to be absolutely sure of your benefits is to call your insurance company member services line and ask:
What is my out-of-network deductible for outpatient mental health?
How much of my deductible has been met this year?
What is my out-of-network coinsurance for outpatient mental health?
Do I need a referral from an in-network provider to see someone out-of-network?
How do I submit claim forms for reimbursement?
Ask me for a superbill: I’ll provide a document called a superbill that you send directly to your insurance company at the end of each month which will detail how many sessions you’ve had and the total fee paid.
Receive reimbursement! You’ll continue to pay the entire session fee at the time of service, but depending on your specific plan, your insurance company will mail you a check to reimburse a portion of the cost. Please note, fees for missed and cancelled appointments are not eligible for reimbursement.
No-shows or cancellations within 48-hours will be charged the full-fee.
