I am a licensed mental health provider, so most insurance plans will help pay for my sleep counseling services. You can obtain your benefit information from the customer service number on your insurance card. There is also the possibility your insurance policy will not cover outpatient mental health services. Regardless of your coverage, you are ultimately responsible for any fees related to your treatment.

Insurance Information
I have made the choice to not contract
 with managed care companies
 as an in-network (IN) provider. However, as an out-of-network (OON) provider, I am happy to provide you a monthly Superbill that you can use to file an OON claim with your insurance company. You will then directly receive whatever OON benefits are guaranteed under your contract.

Keep in mind that OON benefits are typically less robust than those remitted for IN services. I encourage you to call the customer service number on your card to obtain your benefit information if accessing these benefits is important to you.

If you do choose to access your benefits, please also keep in mind the following:

  • Filing any type of claim with your insurance company (whether IN or OON) requires that a mental health diagnosis be assigned to you. Depending on your story and experience, I may or may not be able to supply this diagnosis, but I will be happy to do so if your situation warrants.
  • Your insurance company may ask for additional documentation to support your claim. If your company contacts me directly requesting this information, I will refer them to you so that you can make a personal decision regarding what to share.

HIPAA regulations give you the right to not use your insurance benefits if that is your preference, so it makes sense to consider all of the above carefully when deciding whether or not to involve your insurance company in your care.

I am willing to discuss any of the above with you prior to beginning our work in order to help you explore your payment options and make an informed decision.
