Accepted Insurance

We will check your eligibility and benefits prior to your first appointment. We will also get preauthorization for you if that is required by your plan, however each insurance plan is different and trying to determine exactly what your plan will cover can be tricky. The information provided to us by your insurance carrier is not a guarantee of payment. It is the patient’s responsibility to be informed by their health plan as to their level of coverage. * Using your medical insurance for counseling has some risks involved. In order to use your medical insurance for counseling, you must be given a mental disorder diagnosis and that diagnosis will become a part of your permanent medical record. Having a mental diagnosis on your record may carry long-term implications and may hinder you from being able to obtain life insurance, disability or health insurance in the future. Additionally, filing an insurance claim means your diagnosis, dates of service, etc., are no longer totally confidential, and your insurance company will be aware of your treatment and diagnosis.
