Small Town Counseling CA, Inc. is primarily an out-of-network provider. Therefore, we generally do not directly bill insurance companies. There are very few exceptions to this, Contact Us for more information.
It may be helpful for you to find out if you have out-of-network benefits. Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it may be possible to seek full or partial reimbursement for the cost of the session(s). We recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
- Does my health insurance plan include behavioral health benefits?
- Does my health insurance plan provide coverage for out-of-network providers? If so, what does that process look like and what is required?
- Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
- Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
- *Note: Due to COVID-19, all counseling services from our office will be delivered via Telehealth services and through the use of a secure video platform. Be sure to ask your insurance provider specifically about reimbursement of telehealth mental health services.
Please note the following: Because we primarily do not bill insurances directly, payment is due the beginning of each session. Fees are payable by cash, check, Health and Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) with an associated card (Visa or MasterCard logo required). Upon your request, a receipt can be provided. On that receipt, there is a section for what’s called a CPT Code and a diagnosis code. If you are deciding to submit this to your insurance to seek possible reimbursement, we would include both the CPT Code and insurance code for your diagnosis.
It is important to know that while insurance can lower your cost, insurances typically require we make a clinical diagnosis. This diagnosis becomes a part of your permanent medical record and may have current or future implications. This process is completely up to you. We are happy to discuss the pros and cons of utilizing out-of-network benefits.
We want you to be completely informed about fees, services, and what to expect. Should you be interested in using out-of-network benefits, we ask that you please consult with your insurance provider prior to scheduling to determine coverage options.
Payment is due at the time of service, at the beginning of the session. Fees are payable by Cash, Check, Health and Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) with an associated card (Visa or MasterCard logo). Receipts are provided upon request.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel or reschedule at least 24 hours in advance. Any late cancellations (less than 24-hour notice) or missed appointments will be charged at the full rate of the session.
