Why we don’t accept insurance for payment?
We understand that having health insurance can be important when you want to get help for your life struggles or your relationship problems.
However, we want you to be aware that there are certain risks involved with using health insurance for therapy.
For your insurance to cover your counseling services, you would need to be given a mental disorder diagnosis which will be permanently listed on your medical records. This diagnosis can create problems for you later. For example, when you apply for a job that requires a security clearance, when you want to adopt a child, or when you want to purchase life insurance, mental health diagnoses are taken into account.
Insurance companies also like to collect a lot of information about you to determine whether therapy services you are receiving are medically necessary. Sometimes, they require therapists to submit detailed records to determine progress made in therapy or to make sure that your mental disorder diagnosis is adequately addressed. That, of course, limits your confidentiality.
We want to protect your confidentiality and help you avoid potential problems that can come with having a diagnosis on your record. While we certainly can provide a diagnosis for you if needed, we would like to provide you with the option to not have a diagnosis be a part of your permanent record. This is why we don’t accept insurance payments as reimbursement for our counseling services.
We look forward to meeting you!
