Insurance I am not a participating provider on any insurance panels. However, if you have a PPO or POS insurance plan, you may receive reimbursement depending on your out-of-network mental health provider benefits. Because coverage will vary based on your plan, it is recommended you call your insurance provider and ask the following questions prior to your first appointment (talking to the claims department may be the most helpful route in seeking answers to these questions unless directed by your insurance company to speak with another department):
Do I have mental/behavioral health insurance benefits?
What are my out-of-network provider benefits for mental/behavioral health services? What percentage or amount is covered per therapy session?
Do I need to hit a deductible before my out-of-network benefits start covering mental health sessions? If so, what is my deductible and how much has been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
Is approval or pre-authorization required?
Are both in office sessions and telehealth sessions covered under the out-of-network benefits of my plan?
How do I go about submitting a superbill from my therapist to the insurance company in order to receive reimbursement?
Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. The therapist is required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person, the therapist must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
If a client intends to harm themselves, the therapist will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not work with the therapist towards the appropriate safety plan, the therapist may take further measures without their permission that are provided by law in order to ensure their safety.
Non-Discrimination Policy I do not discriminate against any individual on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, citizenship status, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, or veteran/military status. I provide an atmosphere of respect, dignity, acceptance and safety for all clients.
Trans Care I reference WPATH Standards of Care and adhere to the Informed Consent Model (ICATH) in my therapy practice.
