INSURANCE & OUT OF NETWORK BENEFITS


If you have a PPO or POS plan, you most likely have what is called Out Of Network (OON) benefits. This means your insurance may reimburse you a percentage of any out of pocket costs as determined by your coverage plan. I recommend calling your insurance provider to determine what plan offers in this area -you may be surprised


If you choose to use your  Out of Network benefits, I can electronically submit the required form on your behalf as a courtesy to speed along reimbursement process. 


SELF-PAY


Some people may prefer to opt out of using their insurance benefits and choose self-pay instead, they are able to track, view and discuss any progress notes diagnosis, and/or course of treatment as determined by your insurance provider's contract. For those seeking an extra layer of privacy, or those whose insurance plan does not offer out of network benefits, self-pay may be an option to pay for services.
