Using Insurance for Psychotherapeutic and Counseling Services:

There are important factors to consider when deciding whether to use insurance or pay for care out of pocket. We want to support you in making an informed decision.

 

Comparing Private Pay and Insurance in Private Practice:

Cost may be the first reason you are thinking of using insurance for counseling or psychotherapy, but we believe it is important for you to stay informed of all of the factors that go into this decision. Here are some things to consider when choosing whether to use your insurance or private for psychotherapy or counseling services.

 

Diagnosis Required

Often, a person’s reason for seeking counseling is not related to a mental health diagnosis. However, most insurance companies require a diagnosis in order to pay for treatment. A counselor who is functioning ethically and in your best interest will not diagnose exclusively to utilize insurance. Additionally, there are some diagnoses that may be appropriate to what you are experiencing that insurance companies will not cover if they do not deem counseling to be ‘medically necessary’. Paying out of pocket allows you to access services regardless of diagnosis status, and you have the power to determine if sessions are necessary.

 

Session Duration

Insurance companies ultimately decide the number of sessions you are able to receive, dependent on your diagnosis and benefits package. At the end of that number of sessions, your case will be re-evaluated by your insurance to determine if sessions continues to be ‘medically necessary’. Unfortunately, there is never a guarantee of receiving insurance approval to continue. Private pay allows you to make the decision of continuing in therapy if it is working for you.

 

Decreased Privacy

Information that is communicated to your insurance for reimbursement is part of your medical record. This includes any diagnosis you received, as well as any other information the insurance requested to determine coverage. When paying privately, you have increased control over where, when, and how your information is shared.

 

We understand the financial and personal commitment involved in therapy/counseling with or without insurance, and do not take the responsibility of your care lightly. If you have more questions as you are trying to choose between insurance versus private pay, please contact us at: info@thegoodhealingfirm.com

 

Insurance

Eighty percent (80%) of our clients are a combination of private pay, grant clients and EAP. Twenty percent(20%) are  U.S. insurance clients.

We do not accept insurance outside of the U.S. 

Select therapists at our practice are in-network with:

  • Most Cigna plans

  • Most Optum

  • Most Aetna plans

What if we are out of network? In the U.S. we can provide a superbill (insurance receipt) that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement if you have out of network benefits.

You may file for reimbursement from your insurance company by doing the following:

  • Call the member phone number on the back of your insurance card.

  •  Ask if you have out of network mental health benefits. If you do, ask what insurance is willing to reimburse.

  • Submit your superbill (what we can give you after each paid session), to your insurance company to be reimbursed what your insurance company covers.
