I am a fee-for-service provider, which means that I do not charge your insurance company directly. You may be reimbursed by your insurance company for services provided at Method Counseling if you choose to request "out-of-network" reimbursement or choose to pay using a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA). Please verify the specific requirements for reimbursement with your insurance provider. Advantages of Fee-for-Service Care
Privacy. Avoiding a third-party payor can be an important step in keeping your personal mental health information private. It is important to know that insurance companies require a mental health diagnosis in order to consider providing coverage for mental health services and, once your personal mental health diagnosis is submitted to an insurance provider, it becomes a part of your permanent health care record. Additionally, submitting a claim to an insurance company gives them access to your protected health records.
Individualized length of treatment. Some insurance companies offer only a limited number of mental health care sessions for each individual or diagnosis, which can lead to premature termination of counseling services prior to desired relief. By avoiding insurance limitations, we can develop a more personalized length of treatment for your specific needs.
Simple, straightforward payment. Using a fee-for-service mental health provider bypasses issues with co-pays, deductibles and any unexpected payment discrepancies. You pay one, set fee, directly to your provider at the time of your appointment.
Payment Payment is due at time of service and I accept cash, check, or credit card payments, including Health Spending Account (HSA) and Flexible Spending Account (FSA) cards. If you choose to request "out-of-network" reimbursement from your insurance provider or use an HSA/FSA for payment, I am willing to provide a detailed invoice that you can submit directly to your insurance company.
