Utilizing Insurance in a Private Pay Practice
If you would like to use your insurance you are welcome to contact your insurance provider prior to starting treatment to ask about your out of network benefits. If you do qualify, I can provide you with a super-bill at your request to present to your insurance to seek reimbursement. A super-bill is an itemized receipt for mental health services that includes a mental health diagnosis code and treatment code that your insurance will process to bill for services. At the time of your session, you pay the full session fee using the above options and then you submit the super-bill to your insurance provider. Once they approve the claim they will send reimbursement based on what is available through your out of network benefits.
If you choose to pay out of pocket instead of using your insurance you will not be subject to sharing your mental health diagnosis in your medical records. Unfortunately, a mental health diagnosis is often something that will follow you around in your medical records. The extra level of privacy and a lack of diagnosis can make sure you get the help you need without people knowing your personal business. For private pay individuals I do not need to provide a diagnosis unless you would like me to.
Also, in private pay therapy it is you and I that determine what your needs and goals are without worrying bout insurance restrictions or limitations.
