Make an Investment in Yourself: 

  • All my clients are private pay.  This means I am out-of-network for insurance and do not file insurance claims.  I will provide an industry standard Super bill that you may submit for out-of-network reimbursement.  

  • All fees are due and payable at the time of services.  Payment forms include:  Credit Cards, including most HSA/FSA etc. 

  • Sara Baker Counseling offers programs for those in need but cannot afford a full rate. There may be a limited amount of openings and available sessions for adjusted rates. Please speak with your therapist about this program. Having discussions about difficult things is part of the therapeutic experience.

  • Sara Baker Counseling offers a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) if requested

Insurance FAQ's:

Things to consider before using health insurance for mental health therapy:

  • All Insurance claims require a medical model diagnosis, even if one doesn’t exist. This can affect or limit future insurance coverage and may inhibit certain employment opportunities.

  • The insurance company, not you, decides how many sessions are appropriate for your treatment.

  • Private information, even under new privacy policies, is shared with insurance companies.

  • Private information is stored in the Medical Information Bureau where it can be accessed in the future by insurers, employers, etc.

 

Using insurance is a decision you make. I feel it is important to be informed about the insurance/medical system industry. 

 

You are your best advocate. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. I would be happy to help explain this, often times, misunderstood system. I know I had no idea before getting into the health care field. Feel free to contact me for more information.
