What about using insurance for counseling?

Using insurance for counseling can be beneficial however can put limitations on the process. This is a boutique style private counseling practice.  I work for you, not the insurance company. Currently, I accept the following insurance plans:

  • Together with CCHP
  • Cenpatico
  • Children’s Community Health Plan
  • HSA
  • Humana
  • ICare
  • LifeSynch
  • Managed Health Plan
  • Medicaid
  • Multiplan
  • Optum
  • T19
  • UMR
  • UnitedHealthcare
  • Out of Network

What’s the difference between private pay or using insurance?

When counselors contract with insurance companies sometimes concessions have to be made. Such as the number of times you can see a client and the duration of the sessions. It is important to me to preserve the counseling process therefore and avoid conflicts with a managed care company at times requiring personal therapy data and details about your treatment. Ultimately the decision is up to the client.

Can I use a Health Savings Account, Flex Account, or HRA/HSA for counseling?

Yes.

Using a pre-tax Flex or Health Account for counseling is a way to save money and avoid the hassles of managed care. Unlike using your health insurance for therapy, this route may not always require you to provide a mental health diagnosis.

I’m able to directly charge credit cards associated with your employer-sponsored HRA or HSA (Health Savings Account; Flex Spending Account) type account. I can accept HSA type checks for counseling services too.
