I am not in-network with any insurance companies.
If you have out-of-network (OON) benefits in your health insurance policy, I can provide you with an invoice that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
If the whole process of claiming out-of-network reimbursement intimidates you, it can be facilitated by an outside company. I contracted with a company that can help you to get your out-of-network reimbursement to make the process easier. Just let me know if you need that information.
Disclaimer: If you decide to claim your out-of-network reimbursement, the result of that process is between you and your insurance company. I have no influence on it whatsoever.
Why I Don't Take Insurance
There are a few reasons why I don't take insurance.
The goal of insurance companies is to make money by not paying for the services, so they make it extremely complicated for both of us to get reimbursement from them.
Even though insurance companies start covering tele-mental health services, the coverage is still limited.
Insurance companies require a diagnosis that becomes a part of your medical record for the rest of your life. I am not convinced that it is always harmless.
Reduced confidentiality. Insurance companies have the right to ask why you do counseling and details about the treatment.
Limitations of treatment. Insurance companies can limit the number of sessions that we can have, which is not helpful in case of deep long-term work that I am providing.
As your confidentiality and your right to get the services you need are my priorities, I am not contracted with insurance companies.
As I value my time and time of other people, I ask for 48-hour notice for cancellations. Any cancellations after 48-hours or no shows cost full fee for a session.
