I am an in-network provider with BCBS and Aetna insurance. I also accept out of network benefits. Out of network benefits allow you to see therapists that are out of network of your health insurance. In order to use out of network benefits, you will need to first contact your insurance company to see if they offer out of network benefits for mental health. You will also need to ask them about any deductible or co-insurance with your out of network plan. If you plan to use out of network benefits, you will pay for your sessions upfront. I will provide you with a “superbill” which you can submit to your insurance, and your insurance may be able to reimburse you for part of the psychotherapy session cost. Contact your individual insurance company to find out more about out of network benefits. Please contact me to discuss options for private pay if you prefer not to use insurance. The benefits of private pay include added confidentiality as insurance is not involved as a third party, as well as increased autonomy over psychotherapy sessions.
