At this time, I am a provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield.

For all other insurance plans, services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. North Scottsdale Family Therapy will make every effort to assist you with your health insurer and any available out-of-network benefits through which you may be reimbursed. This includes providing you with a receipt with all necessary information you would need to file a claim with your insurance company.  Please check your coverage carefully by asking your insurer the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

For many clients, the option to pay for therapy services out-of-pocket is appealing, for the following reasons:

  • There is no requirement that the therapist rush to give you a mental health disorder diagnosis at the very first session. However, insurance companies do require this, or they will not pay for counseling.
  • When you pay for therapy sessions with insurance, a case worker will be assigned by your insurance company, who will request periodic updates from the therapist, including details of the client and his or her therapy sessions.
  • Goals for your therapy sessions are decided by you and the therapist, not dictated by the insurance company. Insurance companies are interested only in goals that correspond to reduced symptoms that correspond to a mental health disorder diagnosis.
  • Once a diagnosis is assigned, this becomes part of the client's medical records if therapy is paid through insurance, and thus can potentially be accessed by third parties in the future, including life insurance companies and courts..
