Please see information included under each therapist's bio to find out which insurance plans they can take. For questions, don't hesitate to email your therapist directly.
To be sure you understand how your own insurance coverage works, you are strongly encouraged to call the number on the back of your card.
Questions you may want to ask are:
•Does my plan cover behavioral health/counseling services?
• What is my deductible? How much of that has already been paid for this year? (A deductible is the amount your insurance plan will expect you to pay out of pocket before your insurance coverage begins to kick in. This amount resets annually, typically on Jan. 1.)
• What is my copay/coinsurance for counseling services after my deductible is met? (A copay is the amount you will be expected to pay for each session. If it's a copay, it's a flat rate, such as $25. If it's coinsurance, it'll be a percentage, such as 10% of the amount charged.)
All clinicians at Northeast GR Counseling will also accept private pay for those who prefer. Please ask about an income based sliding scale if needed, as several of our therapists also offer this option.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the new “No Surprises Act,” health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using their insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services from all of your healthcare providers. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one (1) business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider and any other provider you choose for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate for your records. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 800-985-3059.
