ABOUT INSURANCE:

If you are planning to use your health insurance you must call your insurance yourself to find out if they cover for therapy services. Just because your health insurance promises to pay for psychotherapy does not mean that it covers all the different psychotherapist credentials and settings.

Here is the information you need to ask:

Many of the costs of outpatient psychotherapy are covered by health insurance. Please check with your insurance company. It is crucial that you find out what YOUR individual coverage is. These companies most often will only provide you with the information regarding your coverage not me as the professional providing the services. The following guidelines will be helpful for inquiring about your mental health outpatient coverage for my services:

* Ask for details about your outpatient psychiatric/mental health coverage.

* Ask if they reimburse for outpatient psychotherapy from a certified social worker with a Master’s in Social work and certified with the state of Michigan not affiliated with a clinic working independently. I have an MSW and a LMSW (which is Michigan’s licensure for social workers).

* Ask if your policy has a requirement regarding licensure and degree (i.e. M.D., Ph.D.,
M.S.W, M.A. or does it require the clinician to be supervised by M.D. or Ph.D.).

* If they provide coverage for my services then ask how much it pays per visit, do you have a maximum number of visits or maximum dollar amount per calendar year, how much is your deductible and will they reimburse you as you are paying the therapist directly and would need the insurance company to write their check to you.
