Some major insurances are accepted including; BC/BS, Aetna. If I don't participate with your insurance plan, I will be happy to provide you with a Super bill for you to submit, on your own, to your insurance company. Please be advised that payment remains your responsibility and any reimbursement arrangements are between you and your insurance company. Please be advised that if you decide to use your insurance that there will be limitations to your confidentiality. I will be required to submit a diagnosis, which will stay on your health record, to your insurance to justify coverage, this may affect your premiums in the future. Your confidentiality may be further compromised as I often have to submit reports to continue to justify treatment. By paying out of pocket you can be assured of complete confidentiality.
