Make an Investment in Yourself:
All my clients are private pay. This means I 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 fee 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.
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.
