I am an Out-of-Network provider and do not accept insurance as payment.
It is important for you to know: In order to use mental health insurance benefits, your insurance company will require that a mental health service provider submits a diagnostic code representing one of the mental/behavioral disorders found in the DSM-5 diagnostic manual and may require access to your confidential medical records. This could affect future employment and health/life insurance premiums, and court/legal issues.
If you pay out of pocket, submitting diagnoses to insurance companies is not necessary.
Call your insurance company to understand the details of your Mental Health Out-of-Network benefits.
Ask your health insurance customer service the following questions:
• Is precertification required before I attend mental health services?
• If precertification is required, what are the steps?
• Number of mental health sessions allowed per year.
• Deductible that must be met before benefits begin. Ask for in-network and out-of-network deductible requirements, because these can differ.
• How much money will I be reimbursed for an individual mental health session (code # 90837) with an Out of Network provider?
• If they cover a percentage of the "Usual and Customary rate," ask what that looks like in dollars.
• What exact paperwork do you need from me (the client) in order to receive my reimbursement?
Your scheduled appointment is especially held for you, so it is expected that you show up (unless an emergency arises, in which case, you will not be charged a fee).
Cancellations made without 24 hour notice will be billed full price, therefore a credit card charge authorization is required and is included in your intake packet.
Emergencies that happen too often will be billed full-price and also explored - perhaps motivation or some other obstacle is getting in the way of your commitment to you.
If it becomes difficult getting to your appointments, please let me know, it happens!
