Cost & Benefits

Benefits of NOT participating in private insurance:

a No diagnosis needed
Services are not contingent upon a diagnosis. Insurance companies require a diagnosis in order to receive financial reimbursement for counseling. They do not reimburse for coaching services. Educational skills can benefit anyone, with or without a diagnosable illness.
b Your privacy is protected
Insurance companies require information about their clients’ diagnosis, qualifying symptoms, and work in counseling. Bypassing insurance companies allows strict confidentiality. No information is shared with anyone unless requested in writing by you, the person served.
c Service and timeframe are your decision
The type of service you need and the time frame in which it is provided is a decision made between the partners in the therapy process, based on direct experience, rather than an employee of an insurance company deciding the amount and level of coverage.
d Usual, Customary and Reasonable Fees
Session fees are based on Usual, Customary, and Reasonable (UCR) fees established for counseling services providers for this geographical area. It is the amount an insurance carrier is willing to pay for counseling services in the Columbia, Missouri area. There is no industry UCR fee structure for coaching services.
e

Reimbursement is Possible
Coaching services are not managed by insurance companies and are not reimbursable. If grief, trauma, anxiety, or a diagnosable mental condition has created a barrier to the achievement of your life goals, you may choose to engage in counseling services and choose to request reimbursement from your insurance company. In such a situation, collecting insurance reimbursement will be your responsibility, as I do not negotiate or maintain contracts with insurance companies. To assist you with insurance reimbursement, I will provide you with an automated monthly invoice to submit to your insurance company, should they elect to pay for the services of an Out-Of-Network (OON) provider. If you choose to submit an insurance claim, it is important to make sure you have a policy with OON benefits. If you do not have OON benefits and you elect to participate in services, you may not be eligible to receive insurance reimbursement.
