Yes! Many of my clients get a significant amount of their sessions reimbursed once they submit their “superbill” to their insurance. I am considered an "out-of-network" provider. Clients pay for therapy, and I provide a superbill to the client. The client can then submit the superbill to their insurance company to request reimbursement. Not all insurances provide out-of-network benefits, and in some instances the deductible will need to be met prior to reimbursement. The client’s insurance could deny the request for reimbursement.
Similar to an insurance claim, a superbill contains specific information about the client, the service, the provider, and the client’s diagnosis. It is this information that the insurance plan will consider when making a decision as to whether or not they will reimburse the client for what the client has already paid the therapist.
It is recommended that clients verify with their insurance provider to learn if their insurance offers out-of-network reimbursement. Clients can inquire with their insurance by asking questions such as:
Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet? (Deductibles often need to be met before out-of-network benefits are provided.)
Is approval required from my primary care physician to see an out-of-network mental health provider?
Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
What percentage of each session is covered (coinsurance) when I see an out-of-network therapist?
CPT code often used in psychotherapy treatment:
90837 Individual psychotherapy with client, 60 minutes
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I have an office in Port Angeles, and I offer teletherapy to adults anywhere in Washington state.
DO YOU PROVIDE ERP?
Yes, I provide Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP).
I TRIED ERP BEFORE AND I DIDN'T LIKE IT. CAN YOU STILL WORK WITH ME?
Of course! ERP is not the only effective treatment. We have options!
HOW OFTEN WILL WE MEET?
Typically, we will plan to meet once a week for 45 minutes.
HOW LONG WILL I NEED TO BE IN THERAPY?
This is a great question. The length of therapy can vary significantly depending on your specific situation, how long you have been experiencing your current symptoms, your level of engagement, the frequency and length of sessions, your investment in practicing skills outside of scheduled sessions, and your overall response to the treatment. Some clients have met their treatment goals in a few sessions, while others have continued therapy for much longer. The average duration of treatment through ERP is 15–20 sessions, while the average for I-CBT is 12–20 sessions. These are only estimates and may not reflect your individual needs or outcomes.
DO YOU PROVIDE INFERENCE-BASED THERAPY?
Yes, I provide Inference-Based CBT for OCD.
CAN I WORK WITH YOU IF I ALREADY HAVE A PRIMARY THERAPIST?
Yes! I often work with clients who are working with other therapists. We can talk more about this as needed.
