Do you take insurance?
I do not take insurance, but will provide documentation for submission out-of-network claims at client's request.
Not accepting insurance is an intentional choice I made in order to protect my clients and their care.
Insurance companies require therapists to provide a diagnosis in order to get approved for treatment. This is true even if the service being provided is for relationship issues, life transitions, or grief, which are not major mental health diagnoses, and therefore sometimes not reimbursable. I am unwilling to label people with potentially unjustified diagnoses in order to get compensated.
The diagnosis and treatment is recorded in the client's permanent record, which could impact ability to obtain future insurance coverage, or coverage at the same rates.
Treatment type and length is restricted by insurance company guidelines, rather than being directed by the therapist and client. This often results in clients not getting optimal care.
Records are not fully protected, as insurance companies can audit client files at any time. Private information in records can be viewed by members of the insurance company, who are often not clinicians. This lack of confidentiality can also become an issue for those with jobs which require high security clearance.
