It is preferable that patients pay for their psychotherapy services out of pocket in order to have complete privacy and security and to minimize any potential outside interruption to the work.
I am "in network" with BCBSM PPO plans. This means that I will bill for reimbursement by these plans. The patient will be billed for the remainder of the fee allowed by BC. Because I am "in network", the coverage you receive will be the maximum possible. Note that there are some company plans which give their employees BCBSM cards for medical care but have "carve outs" for mental health services. "Carve out" means that, while one may have BCBSM PPO for medical insurance, the mental health portion is given over to another company. These plans are often "managed" and are not part of the BC network. Please contact your insurer to find out if they cover services by me. I will also need to confirm your coverage from my end. I am opting out of Medicare effective March 2017.
This is an exclusive private practice oriented toward fee for services provided and the number of clients is limited. As managed care contracts are intended for brief interventions when an individual is in crisis and require the provider to carry heavy caseloads as well as reveal private and intimate details about the patient, I do not participate with them. The majority of people seeking services do need a longer term intervention and I would encourage those who are underinsured to consider paying for the therapy out of pocket from the beginning to insure the highest quality of care and the optimum conditions for healing. Frequently, clients will find their way to a psychotherapist only after many brief counseling contacts with limited benefit. For some patients, having their psychotherapy interrupted suddenly could have life threatening consequences.
