Do you accept insurance?Although my practice operates as a private-pay service, I accept HSA and FSA cards. This means I can receive cards from those who need to use their health savings accounts. If you have a PPO plan, I can provide you with a superbill upon request. You can use the superbill to apply for reimbursement from the insurance company. However, there is no guarantee that your insurance will reimburse you for your treatment. Keep in mind that Insurance companies require a formal diagnosis to apply for reimbursement. In addition, your insurance company may ask for your therapy records. Since the majority of my clients want the highest level of privacy, this is usually undesirable.
Why don't you accept insurance?Sometimes people go through especially challenging periods in their life and seek support, but don't necessarily meet the criteria for a formal diagnosis. Additionally, there may have been a time when that person briefly met the criteria for a mental health diagnosis but generally does not meet the criteria. In order to use your insurance, however, your therapist has to provide them with a diagnosis. Also, insurance companies may request to view therapy records. The diagnosis would remain in your insurance records your entire life without the possibility to refute or change them - even after the situatiions in your life have improved. Private-pay provides and allows services without the restrictions of insurance regulations, insurance adjusters, or their third-party adjusting agencies. Client confidentiality and discretion are of the utmost importance to me.
