Super Bills are available for you to submit to your provider for possible reimbursement.
Honey Bee Counseling in no way can guarantee reimbursement.
Often insurance will limit who you can choose, and sometimes you are left with not quite the right fit.
EMDR therapy is still considered experimental therapy. Often insurance will require you to see a generalized therapist that is in-network. Self-Pay gives you the option to choose what you want for treatment.
With insurance claims, confidentiality is not guaranteed. Insurance requires clinicians to turn over progress notes and treatment plans, which are then reviewed to determine if they wish to cover you. So often your information is not your own.
Insurance companies have their own protocols when it comes to mental health (which are not evidence-based). Your treatment should not be interfered with by any outside party. Insurance companies can stop coverage at their discretion.
Often therapy is sought out for many reasons, many which insurance does not deem necessary for treatment. Insurance companies require the stipulation of "medical necessity" in order to cover, not emotional wellness.
Insurance companies require diagnosis for coverage, often placing clinicians in a predicament of assigning diagnosis when one might not be needed, just for the client to be covered. Insurance companies do not take into account that some diagnoses are life long and stigmatic.
NOTICE: You have the right to a Good Faith Estimate explaining how much your therapy will cost.
This Good Faith Estimate shows the costs of items and services that are reasonably expected for your health care needs for an item or service. The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created, and does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment.
Throughout your treatment, the provider may recommend additional items or services as part of your treatment that are not reflected in this estimate. These would need to be scheduled separately with your consent and the understanding that any additional service costs are in addition to the Good Faith Estimate.
If your needs change during treatment, your provider should supply a new, updated Good Faith Estimate to reflect the changes to treatment, and the accompanying cost changes.
You may contact the health care provider or facility listed to let them know the billed charges are higher than the Good Faith Estimate. You can ask them to update the bill to match the Good Faith Estimate, ask to negotiate the bill, or ask if there is financial assistance available.
The Good Faith Estimate is not a contract between provider and client and does not obligate or require the client to obtain any of the listed services from the provider.
You may also start a dispute resolution process with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). If you choose to use the dispute resolution process, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days (about 4 months) of the date on the original bill.
There is a $25 fee to use the dispute process. If the agency reviewing your dispute agrees with you, you will have to pay the price on this Good Faith Estimate. If the agency disagrees with you and agrees with the health care provider or facility, you will have to pay the higher amount.
To learn more and get a form to start the process, go to www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call HHS at (800) 985-3059.
