Insurance

I currently am not in network with any insurance panels at my practice. There are many reasons for making this difficult decision and you might be wondering how not using insurance may be a reasonable and sometimes preferable option for you. Insurance panels REQUIRE a diagnosis for claims to be submitted and paid. I find that my clients often do not meet criteria for a mental health diagnosis, particularly when they (or their child) is seeking services for stress or relationship issues. However, to use your insurance, I am required to prove medical necessity for treatment, which means a diagnosis must be given. This presents an ethical dilemma for me and this diagnosis becomes part of your (or your child’s) permanent medical record and may be considered a ‘pre-existing condition’ . Also, those for whom confidentiality a priority might be concerned when they realize how many people are involved in processing insurance claims.

I do realize the need to have access to affordable services. If you would like to submit the bill for insurance, I can provide you with a receipt (a “superbill”) that you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Remember, however, that a diagnosis is required for your insurance to accept the receipt for reimbursement.

I encourage you to call your insurance and discuss what is and what is not covered under your insurance for a provider who is not in network with your plan. You are ultimately responsible for your payments, even if insurance does not reimburse you.
