Consultation and Counseling
Are these services covered by insurance? As mentioned in the “About Me” section, I have chosen not to be a provider on any healthcare panel, and therefore do not accept insurance payment. Psychoeducational Assessments are not typically covered by healthcare insurance, though elements may or may not be reimbursed to you at a MediCal rate. I can provide you with the appropriate information/superbill so that you can be reimbursed from your insurance company for out of network services, if you have authorization to provide them with a bill for such services. If you intend to seek reimbursement, let me recommend that you obtain pre-approval for out of network services before meeting with me, and to get clear feedback about the reimbursement rates (beware that you may be offered a percent of “usual and customary rates” that are not well-defined, unless you get specifics). I am happy to give you some ideas about talking with your insurance company before you make those calls.
