I am registered as an in-network provider for a number of insurance carriers and my services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee assistance plan (EAP). Talk to your benefits department or call the phone number on your insurance card to clearly understand your coverage. Below is a list of questions that should help you understand your coverage:
  • Does my insurance include mental health benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per calendar year does my health plan cover?
  • What is my required co-pay or co-insurance per session?
  • Is Mary Elijah an in-network mental health provider?
  • How much does my plan cover for an in-network / out-of-network provider?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?
  • Is marital or family therapy covered?
Please note that insurance companies require submission of a diagnosis and specific clinical data. If you choose to use insurance or managed care to cover part of the cost of your sessions, please be aware that I will be required to provide that information. I have no control over the confidentiality procedures of third parties once clinical information leaves my office. If absolute privacy of your therapy records is a concern for you, you may prefer to pay for your sessions and not involve third party payers.
