INSURANCE

Why do I and a lot of other therapists not take insurance? I want to be transparent about this.

 

Here is how insurance companies can/do work:

·      Therapists have to apply to insurances which is a lengthy process and therapists are often denied by insurance companies. So sometimes it is as simple as an insurance won't take on a therapist. 

·      Then insurance companies bottom line is to save money, meaning they want to pay out as little as possible. It is an often occurrence that a therapist can be working for months with a client and still not have been paid for any sessions, by the insurance company.

·      Not only do therapists have to spend hours filling out paperwork to get paid, they often have to spend hours on the phone fighting to get paid.

·      Also, if a therapist does get paid, an insurance company can come back, retroactively, and say we don’t think this client needed this treatment and require the therapist to pay back all of the money they received from the insurance company.

Unfortunately, because of my own finical structure, not being able to hire a biller to do all of this work for me and due to my own cognitive disabilities, I am unable to have the bandwidth to take on these insurance companies or have the ability to not get paid on time for my work.

*I understand that some people absolutely have to use insurance. If you are struggling to find someone feel free to still email me and I will see if I can help you find a therapist that works for you and takes your insurance.

Out of Network Benefits

 If you have out of network benefits, your insurance might cover all or some of your fees for therapy. Please feel free to ask me about this and I can send you a list of questions to ask your insurance.
