At this time I am not able to accept payment through insurance. Depending on your out-of-network benefits, I can provide you with documentation, a superbill, that you may file with your provider to obtain reimbursement. The rate of reimbursement is dependent on your particular policy. I encourage you to call your provider to learn more about your benefits.

A superbill is a form used by medical practitioners and clinicians that can be quickly completed and submitted to an insurance company or employer for reimbursement. Nowadays, many professionals do not work directly with insurance companies. That is, they are not part of a medical or insurance panel, instead they work as independent consultants. As such, a need arose to provide patients and clients with a document that could be submitted to insurance companies that would allow clients to be reimbursed by their insurers.

Be aware that should you choose to submit a superbill, you are releasing medical information that is protected by law. This means you are waiving some of your rights to privacy and confidentiality. Your insurance company will have and keep a record of your diagnosis as part of your permanent medical file. These files can be used by insurance companies to set your rates and to allow or disallow further treatment.
