As an “out of network” licensed clinician, clients pay me at the time of each session but are potentially eligible for reimbursement from their insurance carrier. I provide clients with receipts that can be submitted to insurance for out-of-network reimbursement.
To find out your eligibility to receive reimbursement from your insurance company, call them and let them know you are seeking mental health counseling from a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and ask the following questions:
1) “Do I have out of network benefits?”
2) “What is my deductible?”
3) “Once my deductible is met, what percentage or dollar amount of the fee is reimbursed back to me?”
