You may pay for counseling services by using:

  • private payment of services for the utmost privacy and confidentiality
  • your out-of-network benefits of your health insurance plan

Note: accessing your health insurance benefits requires that counseling is medically necessary to treat a diagnosable mental health condition (i.e. depression, anxiety, etc.).

3 Steps in  3 minutes or less

 

Every health insurance plan is different. If services are covered under out-of-network provisions of your health insurance plan, you can submit claims directly to them for reimbursement. Services need to be medically necessary (e.g. treatment for depression, anxiety, etc.) You'll probably have to be persistent because some health insurance plans do everything they can to discourage you from utilizing your out-of-network benefits.
