Do you accept insurance?
I am an out-of-network provider. If you have mental health insurance benefits you may be eligible to submit a claim for reimbursement of out-of-network services. If you choose to seek out-of-network reimbursement I can provide you with a monthly statement (also called a "superbill") that you may submit to your insurance provider.
You also have the right to petition your insurance for a single case agreement, which is a contract between an insurance company and an out-of-network provider for a specific patient, so that the patient can see that provider using their in-network benefits. If you do not have out-of-network benefit you can make a case for why my specific expertise is beneficial to you (a specific referral/letter from a medical care provider may help in this process).
Many clients successfully use their insurance to pay for all or a portion of services. I suggest you contact your insurance company, using the number located on the back of your insurance card, to ask questions about out-of-network coverage as they pertain to your plan so you can make an informed decision before starting therapy.
