Out of Network Provider

If you are insured under a health insurance network that we do not accept, we are able to provide a monthly statement of services that you can submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement, depending on your plan. Please check with your health insurance carrier regarding the amount of reimbursement available to you for using Out-of-Network providers.


When using your insurance to cover therapy services, please keep in mind the following:


All insurance companies require some information about the reason for psychological treatment in order to process your claim. Managed care companies often require detailed information regarding the problem for which you are seeking help, which may include: history of the problem, presenting symptoms, family and work life history, and your level of functioning.

Control of Treatment

Managed care companies use the information about you to decide if treatment is "medically necessary." They decide what kind of treatment is approved, and also may determine how long your treatment should continue. The therapeutic goals used by managed care companies may be at odds with your personal therapeutic goals.

We look forward to working with you. If it would be helpful to you, we can discuss your insurance or private pay options. For private pay clients who are not seeking reimbursement from their insurance provide, we can provide you with a Good Faith Estimate.
