WHAT ABOUT Insurance?
We do not currently accept health insurance, however, some insurance policies reimburse a portion of the charges for counseling when performed by "Out of Network Providers." Please check your policy. If this is the case, we will be glad to provide a receipt that you may then provide to your insurance carrier (aka a "superbill").
Again, we don’t want you to come across any surprises regarding billing, that just adds to stress. Please be sure to contact your health insurance company to learn about the specific requirements of your policy.
WHY DON'T YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
When insurance companies get involved in paying for psychotherapy they also have the opportunity to take control of your therapy. That is, they can limit the number of times you meet, request that personal information be passed along to them, or attempt to dictate what form of therapy is offered. After having worked with insurance carriers for many years, and having found myself on the phone late in the evening explaining why a suicidal ten year old needed more than three therapy sessions, I decided to 'cut the cord' with insurance when I started Invictus Psychological Services. My colleagues and I understand that in some instances this makes our services difficult to afford, but often this may not be the case when providing your insurance carrier a superbill as mentioned above
