Disclosures that have to do with insurance coverage
To maintain the highest level of privacy, we are a self-pay practice. We do not accept insurance, nor do we work directly with insurance companies. However, If you have a PPO plan and would like to apply for reimbursement with your insurance carrier, we can provide you with a superbill so you may apply through them. However, please be aware that health insurance carriers require therapists to provide a diagnosis and other information to pay for mental health services claims. If a client is concerned about having a diagnosis or additional information made available to insurance companies, it's recommended that you do not utilize insurance for our services.
