Out of Network:
If I am not in network with your insurance, I will work with you as an out of network provider. You will pay for sessions up front and I will submit claims to your insurance for reimbursement if your plan allows for this. Please contact your insurance company to verify your mental health benefits as well as how they work with an out of network provider under your specific plan.
Every plan is different even for employees working at the same company sometimes. To avoid surprises with your insurance, I strongly encourage to contact your insurance company and ask the following questions.
Does my plan cover Mental Health Benefits?
What is my Mental Health Deductible?
Have I met my deductible? If not how much have I contributed towards my deductible.
Do I have a Co-payment or Coinsurance that will be due at the time of service?
Are Online Therapy Services (Telehealth Services) covered under my plan? (Many states require that insurance companies cover online services).
Ask your insurance company if it requires the therapist to be part of a preferred provider network.
If the therapist IS NOT part of the preferred provider network, will the insurance company reimburse you for any part of the therapist's fees?
Is there a limit to the number of sessions?
