Using your insurance may make sense financially, but what we’ve found is that therapeutically, it does not. Not only do insurance companies have a lot of limitations (i.e. time, types of issues covered, number of sessions, type of treatments they’ll approve, etc.), but they require a diagnosis and reporting back to them, which makes your concerns less confidential. Not to mention, you have a diagnosis on record, which for some professionals, can be a deterrent to seek the support they need.
A diagnosis is a label necessary for insurance companies to deem your treatment a “medical necessity,” which means that if you’re only going through a transitional or relational problem, we still have to label you as sick. Moreover, most insurance companies do not cover couples counseling, which is what you may be seeking.
If you still choose to use insurance, you may choose to go “out-of-network” and get partial reimbursement. We recommend you call your insurance company and ask the following questions:
Does your plan offer out-of-network benefits?
If yes, you do have a deductible to meet first? If yes, what will your responsibility be once that deductible is met?
Are you limited in the amount of sessions?
For out-of-network claims, you will be provided with an itemized receipt for the full amount of each session. You submit that receipt to your insurance company for partial reimbursement, according to your plan.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged $75 or the full contracted rate (if using insurance), payable before rescheduling your next appointment.
