Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept Insurance?
Currently I accept Magellan and MHN, but do not work with EAP services. It is your responsibility to have prior authorization and knowledge of your copayment price and number of sessions, which means you will be required to contact your insurance prior to our first session.
I can also offer you a 'superbill' to submit to your insurance provider for them to reimburse you. Usually this works with most PPO plans. It is also possible that I can charge your Health Savings account card with prior approval from your insurance provider, it is your responsibility to look into this.
Please know, there are several advantages to paying out of pocket for your therapy. It gives you protection and control over your therapy because it denies managed care providers access to your therapy records. I am required to give you mental health DIAGNOSIS in order for most insurances to pay for your therapy. This goes onto your PERMANENT record and can follow you around for the rest of your life. This information can potentially be used ot deny you access to specific treatments or keep you from changing insurers should something have to change (such as losing your job). Sometimes managed care providers dictate how your therapy should proceed and how many sessions you are allowed, despite having little to no background in therapy processes. Inquire with me and we can work together to come up with a plan on how therapy can be affordable for you without using insurance.
