I am not an In-Network provider for insurance companies. Many insurance plans allow you to see an Out-of-Network provider like me. You may be eligible to get some of the cost of sessions reimbursed. I am happy to provide an invoice (Superbill) upon request, which can be submitted to your insurance company.
It's important to know that using insurance is not always the best option.
In order for insurance to cover therapy services, a client must meet the criteria for a mental health diagnosis as measured by the DSM5. Not everyone who wants to benefit from counseling has a clinical level of symptoms consistent with a mental health diagnosis.
Self-pay ensures your information will stay private. Many clients prefer to keep their therapy details separate from their insurance/medical/employment records. Know that you are still able to pay using any employer sponsored funds like an HSA card. You will not have to provide your insurance with a diagnosis in order to use this form of payment.
Limitations of Treatment
When you are using an In-Network insurance plan, often the insurance plan decides how many sessions you are allowed despite the progress you are making. Self-pay helps you avoid common insurance hassles. I think it is important for clients to be engaged in the decision making in their treatment. They should get to decide the length of service and concerns they want to discuss. This should not be dictated by an insurance company.
See below for questions to ask your insurance company about Out-of-Network coverage. Keep in mind, typically Medicaid and Medicare typically do not cover Out-of-Network providers.
If you are seeking reimbursement from insurance benefits, here are some questions to ask your insurance company before your first appointment. Call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask the following questions.
-Do I have mental health benefits?
-Does my plan cover outpatient therapy with an out-of-network Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)?
-Does my plan cover teletherapy (i.e. remote counseling)?
-Is there a limit on how much my plan covers for an Out-of-Network provider?
-What is my Out-of-Network deductible and has it been met this year?
-How do I send the Superbill my therapist will provide for me each month, so I can receive reimbursement or have the amount applied to my Out-of-Network deductible?
-Do I need a referral from an In-Network provider or my Primary Care Physician to see someone Out-of-Network?
-Does my insurance cover couples counseling (if applicable)?

What is a Gatekeeper?

Gatekeepers can be anyone in your organization. They can include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.
