Do I really need therapy? I can usually handle my problems.
Why do people go to therapy and how do I know if it is right for me?
- What are my mental health benefits?
- Am I an in-network (highest level of coverage) or out of network provider on your plan?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- Is there a deductible on my plan -- if so how much is it and how much has been met this year?
- Is there a co-pay (flat fee) or co-insurance (generally percentage) per session?
- Does my insurance plan limit the number of sessions per calendar year, or are sessions based only on medical necessity?
- Is prior authorization required from my insurance provider?
- How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
