The Self-Pay Advantage
I do not take insurance other than Blue Cross Blue Shield and Montana Medicaid, but I will, upon request, courtesy bill for you to potentially obtain reimbursement from your insurance company.
If you are seeking out-of-network sessions. Some considerations include:
- Privacy. Insurance companies require disclosure of highly personal information, the confidentiality and privacy of which cannot be guaranteed.
- Clinical independence. Managed care can be more involved in determining the details of therapy than some people like. If you want the flexibility to choose the modalities we use, the length of your sessions, and how often we meet, self-pay is the way to go.
- Wellness perspective. Many people don’t want a mental health diagnosis in their permanent medical record, or are seeking therapy for non-medical reasons, such personal growth.
Needless to say, this is something that I take very seriously and I comply with all HIPAA laws on confidentiality. Our sessions will be private and only you and I will have access to our session notes. It is my policy to not release any information without your written consent.
Please be aware that by law, specifically the Tarasoff Duty to Warn, if you are harming yourself or others, I have a duty and obligation to report. In the case that this would apply to you, we will work together to report and try to make it as comfortable as possible.
