INSURANCE

 

All session fees are due at the beginning of each session.   I accept HSA cards, checks, credit or debt cards in session.   My therapy services are often covered by insurance as an "out of network" provider (insurance examples include Premera, Aetna, and others).    However, not all insurance plans cover these services and I recommend that you contact your insurance company and ask if my specific services are covered on an 'out of network' basis prior to our first appointment.  To aid in your reimbursement, I either provide a statement for clients for submitting to their insurance company for reimbursement or I  electronically submit your claim directly to your insurance company.   Even if seeking out of network insurance reimbursement, clients are responsible for providing payment at the beginning of each session.   If you have questions about this process, I'm very happy to discuss with you.

 

Currently, I'm in network with Regence and some First Choice plans. If you carry insurance by either of these, I may be an "in network" provider for your plan. Not all insurance plans cover mental health services.    Please contact your insurance to determine a) if you plan covers mental health services by a LMHC - licensed mental health counselor, b) determine copay and coinsurances, c) any current unmet deductible d) any limits to therapy (including number of sessions covered) and e) coverage for tele-health appointments.  Any session fees not covered by in network insurance are the responsibility of the client and due at the time of service.

 

Please note that clients using their in network insurance are personally responsible for:  

  •  Session fee for services not covered by insurance  (ie tele-health, extended sessions etc).
  •  Co-pays and coinsurance amounts which are due at the beginning of each session.
  •  Any tele-health sessions that are not covered by insurance.  These may not be covered by your insurance plan.
  •  Any late cancellation of session fees for sessions cancelled within 24 hours of scheduled appointment.  These are not covered by insurance.
  •  Providing a valid payment card to remain on file for all of the above payment responsibilities.

Clients who are out of network or self pay are responsible for:

  •  Full session fee for appointment due at the time of session.
  •  Any late cancellation of session fees for sessions cancelled within 24 hours of scheduled appointment.
  •  Providing a valid payment card to remain on file for all of the above payment responsibilities.
