Paying for therapy can seem discouraging and difficult for some. However, some therapy services may be covered in full or in part by your heath insurance or employee benefit plan, such. Even among clients with insurance, private pay remains a choice for those seeking therapy. Below are things to consider when deciding.
-Cost: You already pay for your insurance with monthly premiums so why not use it, right?! By using insurance, a portion or all of your session may be covered making your out of pocket expense smaller, thus making therapy more affordable for many.
-Difficulty finding a therapist that accepts your insurance plan: It can be frustrating trying to find a therapist who takes your specific insurance and when you finally do, often times people aren’t happy with their limited choices.
-Insurance requires a mental health diagnosis: Insurance companies typically only cover services that are declared as a "medical necessity". In other words, for you to be able to utilize your insurance the therapist MUST provide the insurance company with a mental health diagnosis that you qualify for (insurance companies want to know that they are paying for services for a reason).
-Give up some confidentiality: Any documented health treatment filed through your insurance is required to be recorded on your permanent medical record. In addition to your treatment being permanently filed, health insurance companies have access to the type of treatment that you receive and what your progress has been.
