With the exception of the veterans' exams, their services are considered “private pay” services, meaning that the parents of the child or the adult patient/client is responsible for paying for services themselves. However, if a patient/client wishes to file a claim themselves (for “Out of Network” reimbursement), we will provide an invoice with the needed insurance codes.
Many established mental health professionals do not join or remain on insurance panels for several reasons. Filing insurance requires a significant breach of patient/client confidentiality. This includes a psychiatric diagnosis which will then become part of the patient’s/client’s permanent health record. Having such a diagnosis could result in higher premiums, exclusions of preexisting conditions, or denial of insurance.
Also, there is a great deal of paperwork required, which takes time and energy away from the patient/client and significantly drives up costs. Providers who join insurance panels have to pass these costs on to clients in the form of higher fees.
