Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. In order to find out what your coverage you have look on the back of your Health Insurance Card. There you will find one of two telephone numbers that can assist you in determining your coverage. You may call Member’s Services or Mental Health/Chemical Dependency. The following questions will be helpful in understanding and accessing services.
- Do I have Out of Network or In Network Benefits?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- If I do not have a deductible how much is my co pay for each session?
- Do I need a referral or approval from my Primary Care Physician?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- Do I need pre authorization for outpatient counseling? **
** If you are informed you need preauthorization, you will want to ask for authorization number with numbers of visits authorized.
