I am an "in-network" provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield and Tufts Plans, and an "out-of-network" provider for other plans with out-of-network-benefits. If you plan to use your insurance benefit, you will need to verify your insurance prior to our first meeting.
If you plan to use your out of network benefits, I will gladly provide you with a receipt to submit for reimbursement. Since insurance providers and plans vary in their coverage, please call the member number listed on your insurance card and ask the following questions:
- Am I covered for individual and/or couples counseling? (Please note that many insurance plans do not cover couples.)
- Am I covered to see an “out-of-network” provider or only “in-network?”
- Do I have a deductible, and if so, how much is it?
- What percentage of the fee is reimbursed?
Some people prefer to pay out of pocket or privately for a number of reasons. Paying privately allows you greater freedom and choice in your health care because the insurance company is not dictating the treatment plan. Additionally, if paying privately, a mental health diagnosis is not required and your clinician does not have to prove that treatment is a "medical necessity." This means a mental health diagnosis will not become part of your medical record and stay with you throughout your life.
I accept cash, check, credit card and FSA/HSA cards.
