I do not accept insurance - and here's why:
Although awareness and acceptance is progressing each day with regard to mental health concerns, unfortunately, stigma still exists. Not accepting health insurance offers you several benefits:
No diagnosis required. You will not be required to have a mental health diagnosis on your permanent health record to qualify for counseling.
Personal privacy. You can keep your mental health concerns private from employers, family who provide your insurance, colleges, armed forces, or other entities (which could be used against you in legal or employment matters).
No limitations. You do not need to worry about being restricted to a limited number of sessions that your health insurance provider allows.
No pre-authorization or referral necessary. You can begin attending counseling now. You do not need a referral from your doctor or need to obtain pre-approval from your insurance.
My fees are lower. Counseling agencies and clinics often have significantly higher overhead due to relying on insurance reimbursement and/or writing off insurance denials.
No need to meet a deductible. If you have a high deductible, you will likely be paying the full cost of counseling agency fees until your deductible is met; oftentimes for the entire length of your treatment before you have any counseling coverage available as a co-pay.
Military discounts. Because I am not regulated by insurance companies, I have the ability to offer discounts for active military personnel and veterans.
Therefore, I have carefully chosen not to accept health insurance. However, I accept credit and debit cards, select HSA and FSA cards, as well as cash (cash is accepted for in-person counseling clients only). I can also provide you a statement called a "Super Bill" that you can present to your insurance provider for reimbursement of counseling fees paid at time of service, if applicable. Please contact your insurance provider to determine if you have this benefit.
Payment is due at time of service.
