A Word About Insurance
At SLP Counseling, I have decided to provide my clients with receipts suitable for submitting to your insurance company.
I do not attempt to bill or collect for insurance. Insurance companies vary widely in their policies and reimbursement for mental health treatment. Although I am "out of network" for insurance companies, I have found that most respond cooperatively when you submit your own receipt.
There are many reasons for managing insurance in this manner:
- First and foremost is my concern that you as a client have a full say in how your treatment proceeds. Many insurance companies attempt to determine the number of sessions, length of treatment and type of care. I prefer to work together with you so that your treatment is oriented in the way that best fits your needs and concerns.
- You will find that managing insurance in this manner saves money and helps me keep my fees affordable.
- Compare my charges with any other mental health professional of the same qualifications and you will find significant savings.
