Mental health insurance providers require a verifiable and billable mental illness diagnosis, otherwise they don’t pay/reimburse you. Besides you having to meet the medical necessity criteria for mental health coverage of your therapy sessions, you also need to be aware that insurance companies often have a deductible every year, which you have to meet in full prior to them initiating payments for your services, they control the duration of therapy, type of treatment provided as well as require a verifiable mental illness diagnosis, and personal session content information regarding your treatment.

If after what you just read you still need and want to use your mental health insurance, then it is your duty and responsibility to verify your own benefits and be an informed consumer. Since acquiring information about insurance & fees is required.

Please contact your insurance plan provider and carefully check and find out what and how much your particular plan covers, if you in fact you have any mental health benefits, which insurance company is administrating those mental health benefits, what portion of your annual deductible has been already met if any, get an authorization code for your therapy treatment or referral from your primary physician if necessary, check the number of sessions allowed per calendar year as well as your reimbursement rate for out-of-network providers and coverage amount per therapy session.

We will complete reasonable formulas history and getting reimbursed for the portion you are entitled to according to your claims and the insurer’s policies and guidelines (we cannot guarantee what that amount will be if any. Be sure to perform your due diligence to avoid unpleasant surprises).
