Fees

Finances are an important part of this process, so we want to be as transparent as possible. We want you to be fully informed at the beginning of therapy in order to provide you with a safe environment without any surprises.

Insurance Information

We are currently in-network with the following insurance companies:

We can also bill as an out-of-network provider. This is not a bad thing; typically the deductible and copay are slightly higher, but coverage is less stringent and more flexible than with contracted providers. Here are some companies we regularly bill as an out-of-network provider:

  • Health Net
  • Moda (formerly ODS)
  • MHN
  • Providence
  • United HealthCare
  • …and many others

If you have Kaiser insurance, you will have to talk with your member representative about connecting with a therapist at one of their clinics. They typically will not refer out (to a non-Kaiser employee), but may be able to under certain circumstances.

Insurance Claims

We handle all insurance claims electronically at no additional cost or effort to you. All we need in order to check your insurance benefits/eligibility and submit claims is a copy of your insurance card (front and back) and your date of birth. Insurance claims are submitted securely through a clearinghouse, making the process much safer and faster than paper delivery.

Payment Information

All payments are due on the date of service. Accepted forms of payment are cash and checks (preferred), but we can also accept debit/credit cards as well as Health Savings and Flexible Spending Accounts for an additional fee per transaction ($1 for payments under $50, $2 for payments up to $99, $3 for payments above $100). Alternatively, we can process ACH bank payments free of charge.

Cancellation Policy

We require 24-hours notice for all cancellations so we can keep a full schedule and maintain consistent appointments with clients. Late cancellations or missed appointments will be charged the full regular session rate. Please note that these sessions cannot be billed to your insurance.

Questions?

Here are some questions you can ask when you contact your insurance (see the phone number on your card):

  • Does my insurance plan cover mental health outpatient services for Discover Counseling?
  • What is my deductible, and how much of it has been paid so far?
  • Is my plan a calendar year plan (January 1-December 31) or a contract year plan (e.g., September 1-August 31)?
  • How much am I responsible for paying per visit, and is this a flat rate (copay) or a percentage (coinsurance)?
  • Does my insurance require preauthorization? If so, how many sessions are covered?
  • Is there a maximum number of allowable sessions that will be covered?

If you still have questions about insurance, that’s okay! It can be confusing and complicated. Please Contact Us and our billing specialist will be glad to answer your questions.
