Do you take insurance?
I am Out-Of-Network only. This means I do not contract directly with any insurance carriers. I provide a Superbill (basically an itemized statement) for clients who want to file out of network claims with their insurance company. This statement is automatically provided through the client portal on a monthly basis. If you need it sooner simply send me an e-mail to request it.
Depending on your specific policy and plan, you may qualify for partial or full reimbursement of your sessions. Reimbursement rates varies by plan, so you’ll need to check directly with your insurer by calling the customer number usually found on your insurance card.
When calling your insurance company to ask about benefits these are some questions that may help:
- Does my plan cover outpatient mental health counseling?
- Do I have any out of network benefits for outpatient mental health counseling?
- If so, do I have to meet an out of network deductible? Have I met it yet?
- Once my deductible is met, how much of my out of pocket payment will be reimbursed to me?
It is important to understand that in order for an insurance company to cover mental health services, they require a mental health diagnosis which becomes part of your permanent medical record, and may be considered as a pre-existing condition in some cases. If you submit an out of network claim to your insurance company it will contain billing and diagnostic information including a mental health diagnosis. Anne Russey Counseling cannot guarantee the security of the information once it is released to you or sent by you to your insurance company.
Payment for Therapy Sessions
Traditional forms of payment are accepted at the time of session, including check, credit/debit card, cash and HSA/Flex spending debit/credit cards. Credit cards accepted include: American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa.
Attendance and Cancellation Policy
Your session time is reserved for you. Regular attendance to scheduled appointments is an important part of making therapy work. If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you give the required 24 hours notice of cancellation to avoid fee equal to session rate. Cancellation of Monday appointments required by Friday prior.
