Billing and Fees for Therapy

FEES:  We have a variety of therapists with a variety of education and experience.  Each therapist has their fee set by Mettarel and it can be seen on their bio page which is accessed through the staff page.  

 

INSURANCE:  Many of our services are covered by insurance.  Depending on your policy and insurer you may be eligible for reimbursement for some or all of our fee.  As of April 1st, 2019 we are out of network with all insurance carriers.  What this means is that you will pay for your appointment at the time of service and you will be furnished with a superbill through our online accounting service (login here) which can then be submitted directly to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.

Couples Therapy and Reimbursement: The amount of insurance coverage for couples counseling varies greatly.  It is best to check directly with your insurance company.  To check your coverage you would ask if they cover couples counseling, procedure code 90847 with diagnosis Z63.0 (Problems in relationship with spouse or partner).  If you are told that the procedure needs to be medically necessary, they will not cover Z code diagnosis.  We only use medical diagnosis when we are specifically treating the diagnosis.
