Insurance Reimbursement

If you would like to use your health insurance for counseling, I will be happy to assist you in this process.

I do not participate in any managed care plans, or health management organizations. However, many health insurance plans do reimburse for my services as a "non-participating" ("out of network") provider.

Insurance plans can change and many insurance carriers offer multiple plans, so it's important that you verify your benefits directly with your insurer. When you speak with your insurance company, some of the important questions to ask include:

  • Does my health insurance plan have a mental health benefit?
  • Does my plan reimburse for Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC's)?
  • Does my plan cover a non-participating (out of network) LPC, and at what percentage?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met yet?
  • Is my mental health deductible part of, or separate from, my medical deductible?
  • How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?

Some of the insurance companies that I've worked with are listed below. Many insurance plans cover the services of Licensed Professional Counselor's so if you don't see your company's name on this list, it's still worth checking your plan.
