Most insurance companies do not cover full pay for counseling services, and only allow a certain amount of sessions. Depending on your insurance company,I accept co-payments to avoid any claims for most insurance companies, after initial fee, or deductibles. If your going through your insurance company most services are $95-$110 per 50-minute session. Basically, it can cost you more going through insurance companies. Overall, counseling may seem like a limitation, but all sessions, for everyone, are typically just the cost of a co-pay, after initial fees. This arrangement protects patient privacy, helps to avoid stigmatizing diagnoses in medical records, and allows patient and and your professional provider to work as needed for any length of time.
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per session?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis.
