Insurance Questions

 

I am not a contracted provider for any insurance plans.

However, my services may be converd in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan.

My office will be glad to file claims on your behalf as a courtesy to you.

 

To find out whether your private plan covers my services, please call your insurance company and ask:

  • Do I have "outpatient mental health benefits"?
  • Do I have coverage to see a behavioral health provider who is "outside of my insurance network"? 

If the answer is "yes" for both questions, then also ask:

  • Do I have an out-of-pocket "deductible" (a sum you'll have to pay before your company will begin reimbursing you)? If so, what's the amount?
  • How much of my deductible have I met for the current year?
  • What percentage of the provider's actual fee does my plan cover? (Some companies limit the amount they will reimburse for a service to a percentage of a capped fee that they determine is "reasonable and customary." These capped fees are often substantially lower than the provider's actual fee.
  • Do I need authorization for the visit(s), and if so, how do I get authorization?

 

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW WHEN USING INSURANCE FOR MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT

 

Your insurance company will require a medical diagnosis from me, and this diagnosis will remain in your treatment record. 

Health and treatment records are typically requested by insurance companies when you apply for life insurance and disability insurance. Employers may also request your treatment record. 

 


 

USING MEDICARE


I am a Medicare provider who has "opted out" of Medicare.

Medicare recipients are not entitled to any reimbursement from Medicare for my services, except for services I provide on an emergency basis.
