Easy Guide to Insurance Reimbursement

Easy Guide to Insurance Reimbursement

Please note: This information is for therapy/counseling/hypnotherapy clients only.

It’s a common myth that clients of fee-for-service providers are not covered by health insurance benefits. This is not accurate. The majority of my clients are typically reimbursed at a rate of 50-70%.

Based on my credentials and state licensure, if you have an out-patient mental health care benefit in your health insurance benefit package and are permitted to choose your own service provider (PPO), you are eligible to receive reimbursement for my fee at the out-of-network percentage rate noted above. I do not bill insurance companies; however, the receipt I provide following each session contains the information your insurance company typically requires and can be attached to your claim form.

For timely reimbursement:

  1. Contact your insurance company to request claim forms.
  2. Submit the first claim form immediately in order to kick start your reimbursement process.
  3. Submit at a frequency level that works for you so your reimbursement can supplement your cash flow.
