If you would like to use your insurance for services:

I am an In Network Provider for:

BCBS of GA

Aetna Insurance

I am also in negotiations with several other insurance companies to become an In Network Provider. In the meantime, I am considered Out of Network and can help you file for possible reimbursement from your insurance provider. While you will need to initially pay your full fee up front, most insurance companies will reimburse you for the amount covered for an Out of Network provider.

**Please make sure that you bring your insurance card with you to your first session. If you are not the primary insured on the policy, make sure you know the birthday of the primary insured as well.

Frequently Asked Question: Why would I not want to use my insurance for therapy?

medical-781422_1280Answer: Using insurance benefits is like having a third person in the room with us during sessions. The insurance company will have the right to request access to your file at any time, to limit the number of sessions you can attend, and will require that I assign you a mental health diagnosis in order to cover your services.

Please take special note of that last one and the potential long term effects: When you attend therapy and choose to file with your insurance, I must provide a mental disorder diagnosis in order for the insurance provider to reimburse for the appointment. If you do not already have a mental health diagnosis, I prefer not to assign one, as that has no effect on our work together and a diagnosis is not necessary to receive therapy.

In the event you are to ever need to change insurance or seek private, personal insurance (for example, if you become self-employed), the information regarding the mental disorder will be permanently on file, potentially causing insurance rates to be significantly higher.

Consider the potential benefits and risks of using your insurance coverage and if it is worth it to waive your right to complete confidentiality (now and in the event you need to change insurance providers in the future).
