Questions to ask your insurance provider (In Network)

 

To avoid any concerns with payment, contact your insurance company and ask them...

- What is my deductible and has it been met?

- What is my co-pay for each session?

- How many mental health visits per year does my health insurance cover?

- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?

- Is approval required from my primary care physician?

 

Questions to ask your insurance provider (Out of Network)

 

If you are using out of network benefits and intend to have your therapy payment reimbursed back to you, the following questions may help in your conversation with your insurance provider:

 

- Do I have out-of-network benefits that cover mental health services?

- Do I have a deductible for out-of-network coverage and how much is it?

- What percentage of out-of-network charges are reimbursed once deductible has been met? 

- Is there a limit on the number of sessions my plan covers in a year?
