I appreciate the privacy offered to clients who chose to private pay. I am on most insurance panels and encourage you to call and check with them directly.
There are several reasons that you may choose not to use insurance. All insurance companies require a diagnosis for treatment, and many cover a limited set of disorders. Treatment has to be medically necessary and you will have to be diagnosed with a mental disorder that your provider covers.
The diagnosis and treatment become part of your medical record. Some employers use medical records when making employment decisions. Once you have been given a diagnosis, it may also affect your access to insurance and your cost if you change plans.
In addition, some insurance companies do not cover couples or family therapy.
I'm not able to guarantee reimbursement from insurance companies. And you are still responsible for full payment at each session.
You are responsible for understanding your insurance plan/s, it’s deductibles, and covered services. Any charges not covered by insurance is/are considered patient responsibility. This includes copays, coinsurance, and denied claims, and will be due prior to the next appointment. Some insurances are considered in-network and other may reimburse as out-of-network. Out-of-network (OON) is your responsibility to pay; I can provide a receipt for your records.
