Please read the following information to help you discern if I might be an acceptable guide in this significant investment of emotional and financial resources.
The majority of my patients pay psychotherapy fees privately. While I am in-network with the two following companies, as a service to public employees, you are responsible to confirm your coverage and benefits directly: Educator's Mutual (EMI), and Public Employees Health Plan (PEHP). If I do not accept your insurance, and you would like to request out-of-network reimbursement, you may request a superbill to submit to your insurance company. Some patients will receive a portion of psychotherapy fees reimbursed to them from their insurance companies. Many patients will not receive any reimbursement. Being reimbursed my full fee is extremely rare.
Millions of people have seen therapists and used their insurance to pay for services. You should also be aware that if you choose to use your insurance, I am required to submit a diagnosis to your insurance company, and, should they request it, I am contractually obligated to submit your complete record. The vast majority have noticed no change in their personal insurability, or health insurance premiums, as a result. However, you should be aware that such an occurrence is possible.
