Insurance Reimbursement: Out-of-Network (OON)
I do not accept insurance as payment or participate with any insurance panels. However, most insurances will allow you to utilize your out-of-network benefits for partial reimbursement once your meet your plan's deductible. Please contact your insurance company to check your "out-of-network" coverage for mental health counseling by a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW-R). You may also want to ask about video and/or group session coverage. If my services are covered by your out-of-network benefits, I will provide you with a monthly statement to submit to your insurance company for (your plan's) reimbursement.
Please Understand That...
• I do not work or communicate with insurance companies.
• Your insurance company will likely require you (or your adolescent) to meet criteria for and be diagnosed with a mental disorder!*
• Your insurance company can at any time deem current or past services medically unnecessary. This means that they can deny you future reimbursement and even recoup (clawback) reimbursement payments previously paid to you. Any clawback will be your sole responsibility.
Self-Pay (No insurance or not using out-of-network benefits):
Good Faith Estimate Notice
Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service, or at any time during treatment.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, or how to dispute a bill, see your Estimate, or visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
