I can help you work with your insurance company in providing psychotherapy benefits. I participate in network with some insurance companies. Out-of-network psychotherapy benefits are very often provided if I am not in your network, and the out-of- pocket difference for you between in-network and out-of-network fees is often small.
If you have any questions about your insurance coverage, please call me and we can answer them before your first appointment.
The Mental Health Parity law, which took effect on January 1, 2010, mandates that psychotherapy benefits be equal to other medical coverage, with no arbitrary limits or separate deductibles. This law applies to both in-network and out-of-network psychotherapy benefits, and may mean that your psychotherapy benefits are now better than they were previously. We will cooperate to ensure that your psychotherapy benefits work for you.
