Insurance

Dr. Marimon is a out of network provider for most of the insurance which means that she does not bill insurance companies directly. Your counseling services may be eligible for reimbursement through out-of-network benefit. The first step you can take is to call your insurance provider to inquire about reimbursement for out-of-network counseling services.


These are some of the question for your insurance:

  1. Does my plan cover counseling sessions?
  2. Does my plan cover services to out-of-network mental health providers?
  3. Does my plan cover only individual counseling or will it also cover family or couples counseling?
  4. What is the deductible I have to meet before coverage to an out-of-network provider kicks in?
  5. What is my copay or what percentage of treatment do I pay when seeing an out-of-network mental health provider?
  6. Is there a maximum amount per session the insurance will cover for an out-of-network provider?
  7. How much time do I have to file a claim for out-of-network services?
  8. Do I need pre-authorization or a referral from my primary care physician to see a counselor?
  9. If I need pre-authorization, do I need to call or does my counselor?
  10. What is the process to get reimbursed for out-of-network services?

I will provide you with a receipt at the end of each session which you can submit to your insurance company for out-of-network coverage/reimbursement.


Confidentiality

In general, the law protects the confidentiality of all communications between a client and psychotherapist. No information is disclosed without prior written permission from the client. However, there are some exceptions required by law to this rule. Exceptions include:

  • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. The therapist is required to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person. The therapist is required to notify the police.
  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself. The therapist will make every effort to work with the individual to ensure their safety. However, if an individual does not cooperate, additional measures may need to be taken to protect life.


Insurance and confidentiality

In order to use medical insurance, the insurance has to analyze the service is medically necessary. Therefore, they will need a diagnosis to decide if the benefits will cover this diagnosis. The treatment plan made in session will reflect how the diagnosis is been treated. Confidentiality may be compromised since many people form the insurance may have access to this information. In the short run, this may not affect you. However, medical records are requested when you apply for life insurance or other types of policies. This include all mental health records. If you are summoned in a court proceeding your records can also be subpoenaed.

Consider the pro and cons of using insurance for therapy sessions including the cost factor, documentation and confidentiality.
