  • The question of health insurance

    I am a therapist because I enjoy the work of helping people find solutions to the problems in their lives. However, it is also the way I make my living. Professional relationships work best when client and professional have a shared understanding about financial issues.

    The question of health insurance has become very complicated. If you have health insurance it will usually provide some coverage for mental health treatment. However, there is a tremendous range in benefits available so it is important that you find out exactly what mental health services your insurance policy covers. Most policies have limits on frequency of visits, and limit what services are covered. You should contact your insurance carrier directly to determine your policy benefits. I will fill out forms and provide you with whatever assistance I can in helping you receive the benefits to which you are entitled.

    Health insurance benefits can only be used for the treatment of illness. This means that I must assign a psychiatric diagnosis about you before benefits will be available. Additionally, some insurance carriers utilize case management where I am required to provide additional clinical information such as treatment plans or summaries before authorization of treatment is given. I will make every effort to release only the minimum information about you that is necessary for the purpose requested.

    Insurance companies often change their approved provider listings. I am selective about what plans I agree to participate because some insurance plans come with serious restrictions to the client and provider. Complications with health insurance can include loss of privacy and loss of control of treatment.

    Some insurance companies want a thorough description of your problems, history, work life and so on. Decreases in privacy may lead to decreases in your openness. The more that is true, the less effective our work together can be. For this reason, I choose not to participate in insurance plans that require extensive release of personal and private information. Additionally, I believe the two people who can best make treatment decisions are the client and therapist, in partnership. I do not participate in plans where treatment decisions are controlled by intrusive case management where officials of the insurance company, many of which have limited training in therapy, make the decision if treatment is authorized.

    Even if I am not "in-network" with your plan, it is helpful to understand your "out-of-network" benefits as often it worth paying higher out of pocket costs to see the person you really want to work with.

    For your convenience, I am happy to accept VISA and MasterCard.
