I am in network for medi-cal (beacon health). I can bill on your behalf as a out of network provider to many other companies. If you would like to use your insurance for your sessions please let me know.
Beacon/medi-cal: You will not have any co-pay, I will need your insurance information before the appointment and verify they will accept me. As long as that goes through you will have no fees for service.
Example: Couple’s therapy sliding scale is $100-$150, if your insurance pays $75 and you have a co-pay of $25, your fee will be $50. If this will be a burden for you we can discuss some options, I do not want cost to be a barrier to treatment. I will offer a few slots for lower fees, usually 2 spots on going.
If your insurance is out of network: I will take payment from you, and I can send your insurance a superbill on your behalf or I can provide you with a superbill to submit yourself. They will reimburse you for a portion of your bill, based on the rates they pay and your deductible.
Some things to ask your insurance company:
Do I have a mental health insurance benefit?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my insurance cover?
Does my therapist need to provide a diagnosis?
Are all diagnosis covered?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
What impacts coverage amount?
Is pre-approval required from my primary care doctor prior to starting?
