Using Your Insurance

Your insurance company will be billed directly. You will be responsible for the copay and/or deductible indicated in your plan.

I am an in-network provider for the following:

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Midland’s Choice
  • Aetna
  • Other insurance providers – please check the specific network for your plan

If you have a different insurance carrier, your plan may cover out-of-network providers for a portion of the fee. In that case, I am happy to provide you with a statement that you can send in to your insurance provider for reimbursement after each session. You will be responsible for paying the full fee at each session.

Please call your insurance company to find out about your coverage. A few questions to ask are:

  • What mental health services are covered under my plan?
  • How many sessions am I allowed or how much coverage is available to me?
  • Does my plan cover out-of-network providers?
  • What percentage of the fee will be covered?

It is important to know that insurance companies require that I share a clinical diagnosis with them. Additionally, they may ask that I share treatment plans or summaries while they determine whether to cover continued sessions. This information will become part of the insurance company files. In some cases, they may share your personal information with a national medical information databank.

Please remember that you always have the right to self pay for my services to further protect the confidentiality of your treatment.
