What are the benefits of private pay?
Mental health treatment can become part of a permanent health record when insurance is being used. When using insurance, I am mandated by insurance companies to provide a diagnosis. With that being said insurance can dictate course of treatment based on diagnosis. When insurance is not used, no diagnosis is formally required nor are there any time limits to services. Through private pay you won’t have to worry about your insurance being involved. If you have any questions about this we can discuss further.
I am currently an out-of-network provider with some insurance companies. What that means is you will pay me for your session at the time of service and it is not processed through your insurance company. If you would like I can provide you with a receipt called a superbill that you can submit to your insurance to be reimbursed for our session. If you want to know if you can be reimbursed, I suggest you call your insurance company and ask about your plan’s out-of-network coverage for mental health providers. Here are some important questions to ask when you call them:
- Does my plan provide out-of-network reimbursement for mental health?
- Am I covered to see a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
- Will you cover in-person and/or video therapy sessions?
- Is there a deductible I need to meet before you will start to reimburse me?
- Is there a maximum amount you will reimburse within a year or period of time?
- Do I need a diagnosis on the statement I receive from my therapist?
Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 800-985-3059.
