Will my insurance reimburse me?
Your getting reimbursed will depend upon the specific terms of your insurance. I am among the many experienced therapists who do not participate in insurance networks, but practice on a direct pay basis.
If you cannot direct pay, you may have some options available to you.
It may be helpful for you to determine whether your insurance may reimburse you for services, using a Single Case Agreement for specialized help from a more experienced therapist.
Usually determined on a limited case-by-case basis, a Single Case Agreement allows someone to access in-network benefits for treatment by a therapist who is not in their usual insurance network of providers. The agreement is usually specified to a limited window of care.
Many insurance companies also have provisions for Out-Of-Network care reimbursement. The rate of reimbursement for Out-Of-Netwark care is usually lower than for that provided by a therapist within their network.
I encourage you to consult with your insurance provider about the specific terms of your policy coverage. If you cannot pay on a fee-for-service basis, it may be that your available options may include either a Single Case Agreement or Out-Of-Network care.
