Priscilla is an out-of-network provider and is able to provide superbills (“therapy receipts”) to any client who wishes to use his/her out-of-network benefits.
When exploring your out-of-network benefits, you may want to ask your insurance carrier about the policy/coverage for an out-of-network provider, deductible, rate of reimbursement, number of sessions authorized per year, process for obtaining reimbursement, and if prior-authorization is required.
Private Pay Benefits
Electing to pay completely out of pocket allows you the most privacy and control of your treatment. Your records remain free from any audit or compliance check. You maintain the most flexibility and control in deciding the session frequency, longevity, content, and interventions. Insurances are not informed of any applicable mental health diagnosis.
Your reasons for seeking counseling probably include much personal information about your life, work, marriage, kids, and mental health issues. Private pay providers are better able to protect your health information with the greatest degree of privacy.
