As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, my professional services qualify for patient reimbursement under most insurance plans and are considered to be within the usual and customary range set by most insurance companies.
Although the choice to use your insurance for reimbursement of therapy is yours, please consider the following before making this decision:
- Insurance companies are designed to reimburse for the treatment of illness. Therefore, a psychiatric diagnosis is usually required before any reimbursement is allowed.
- Managed care companies control many facets of your therapy, including the medical necessity of care, the type of therapy they will cover, and the duration and pace of therapy.
- All insurance companies require some personal information in order to facilitate processing your claim. Once this information is transmitted to an insurance company, there is no way to ensure that it will remain private and confidential.
Because I value confidentiality and believe that your therapy should be guided by you and not your insurance company, I do not participate in any managed care plans.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about insurance and fees.
