**INSURANCE DOES NOT COVER MARRIAGE COUNSELING**

Insurance FAQ’s

Here are some reasons as to why we limit insurance coverage…

  • Health insurance companies require me to provide a legitimate diagnosis in order to provide you with “billable” treatment services which becomes a permanent part of your health insurance and medical/mental health records and can adversely affect your future.  For example, if you apply for job that requires a security clearance, if you would like to adopt a child, or if you would like to purchase a gun here in the great state of Texas, mental health diagnoses are a primary consideration. Marriage counseling and grief counseling are not covered under insurance.

Not everyone that comes into our office has a mental illness, but instead may be struggling with life stress and need help getting unstuck. Here are some of the impacts of using insurance:

  • Insurance companies will only authorize a limited number of sessions that they will provide payment for.
  • Insurance companies can also take a while to reimburse their providers. You deserve a therapist that can give you their full attention to focus on your needs and not worry about sacrificing the quality of service.
  • When you are self-pay, your treatment remains confidential when you unless you authorize to release the information to another party since we do not bill the insurance company.
