Insurance Information

  • I do not currently take insurance. I can provide you with a monthly billing statement for reimbursement for you to submit to your insurance company. 

  • Some or all your fees may be covered by your health insurance, if you have outpatient mental health coverage. However, insurance companies do not reimburse all conditions that may be the focus of psychotherapy. It is your responsibility to verify the specifics of your coverage.

  • Please remember that my services are provided and charged to you, not your insurance company, so you are responsible for payment.

  • Fees you pay for therapy services that are not reimbursed by insurance may be deductible as medical expenses if you itemize deductions on your tax return.

  •  PPO’s offer reimbursement for out of network mental health providers.  You may be eligible for reimbursement of a significant portion of the fees. You can check your coverage by calling the number on the back of your insurance card and getting answers to the following questions:

  1. Do I have out-of-network mental health benefits?

  2. Do I have a deductible? What is my deductible and has it been met for this calendar year?

  3. Are there any limitations on my coverage (i.e., number of sessions, specific diagnoses, etc.)?

  4. Is pre-authorization required from my primary care physician?

  5. What percentage of my (out-of-network) therapist’s fees will be reimbursed?

  6. What exact information is necessary to submit for reimbursement (i.e diagnosis code, provider tax ID, etc.)
