Insurance Question to Consider

"Should I use my insurance coverage, or pay out-of-pocket?"


When you choose to pay for your outpatient mental health counseling on a self-pay fee-for-service basis, you have much more privacy, freedom and control over your therapy.  You have the privilege of complete confidentiality within the confines of the law.  Also, the right to choose which therapist you want to work with, what issues and concerns you feel appropriate for treatment, and how long you feel it necessary to continue treatment.


When you ask your insurance company to pay for your outpatient mental health counseling, you give up some of your rights to confidentiality, and most of the control over the treatment process.  True privacy and confidentiality means sharing sensitive, personal information with a single, trusted professional chosen by the client.


Managed care and insurance companies are required by the Federal law "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act", commonly known as Obamacare, to utilize EMR "Electronic Medical Records" for all transactions between medical providers and insurance payors. This law requires the sharing of your private medical information electronically with multiple entities who are not chosen by the client.  The case must be reviewed by the insurer to verify coverage, document and approve treatment, document payment for services, determine care continuation and termination.  Health insurance companies use a medical disease model, so reimbursement requires a "diagnosis" label and treatment is restricted to what is medically necessary.   This medical information becomes part of your permanent medical record and can follow you to all future insurance carriers.  


Every benefit package is different and determined by the contract between the insurer, MCO, employer and/or employee.

Most insurance plans require an annual deductible and a co-payment to cover the expenses of treatment.
