Payment Options

What if I have Medicare and a Secondary Insurance?

 

If you have medicare plus a secondary insurance, like AARP or BCBS, you will only have to pay your standard co-pay, as you would for any doctor's visit.  If you do not have a co-pay for a doctor's visit, then you will not have a co-pay for a psychotherapy session.  Most of my medicare clients with a secondary insurance pay nothing out of pocket for psychotherapy.

 

What if I don't have traditional Medicare?

 

If you have a medicare replacement PPO, employer sponsored PPO, or a private PPO, you will often be able to submit a claim on your own for partial or full reimbursement from your insurance company.  There should be a phone number on the back of your insurance card that you may call to find out what your coverage is for mental health services.  Often, insurance companies will provide a one page form that you can fill out to get partially or fully reimbursed for psychotherapy, depending on your type of coverage.  Following payment, I will gladly provide a receipt with all of the necessary information to file the claim on your own.

 

Filing a claim on your own only takes a few minutes of your time.  Filing your own claim allows me to charge a more reasonable rate for psychotherapy because I do not have to take the time to file caims myself and then wait several weeks for payment.
