Healing Matters Counseling Center does not accept insurance and is considered an out-of-network provider. Some insurance plans offer reimbursement for mental health services and HMCC is happy to provide a receipt of service, or superbill, for these purposes.
HMCC is not liable if insurance will not cover the out-of-network service.
Below is a list of recommendations to help with finding out if your insurance plan will cover out-of-network services:
Step 1 - Contact your insurance company to verify if they will accept a receipt for reimbursement for out-of-network outpatient mental health services. This phone call can take about 15-30 minutes and you will be asked to share client information to verify your account.
Step 2 - Take notes on what is shared with you and document the date/time you called, the health insurance representative’s name, and the reference number for the phone call.
Step 3 - Here is a list of recommended questions to ask:
Do I have a mental or behavioral health policy with out-of-network benefits?
What are the requirements to use out-of-network benefits?
Is prior authorization or a referral required?
Do I have an out-of-network deductible and what is it?
How much of my out-of-network deductible has been met?
What is the start date of the calendar year my out-of-network policy is based on?
Is there a session limit? What is the limit? How many sessions do I have?
What percentage of services is covered?
Do I have any co-insurance? How much co-insurance do I have?
Good Faith Estimate/No Surprises Act
As of January 1, 2022, the No Surprises Act (H.R. 133) has gone into effect which ensures that Out of Network health care providers, including mental health providers, give clients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services, also referred to as a Good Faith Estimate.
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. The Good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
A Good Faith Estimate will be provided to you before your first appointment. This document is for your awareness only and it DOES NOT involve you needing to make any type of commitment.
Healing Matters Mental Health (HMCC) recommends that you make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
The "Good Faith Estimate" requires providers to provide an exact estimate and not a range. The below estimates are accounting for weekly therapy with two weeks off throughout the entire 12-month calendar year. Out of an abundance of caution and transparency, HMCC will only quote weekly appointments as follows:
Initial tele-therapy session ($150) + 50 minute individual tele-therapy session ($120) for 50 weeks on a weekly basis = $6,150.00
Initial tele-therapy session ($150) + 50 minute individual tele-therapy session ($120) for 25 weeks on a biweekly basis = $3,150.00
Initial tele-therapy session ($150) + 50 minute individual tele-therapy session ($120) for 12 weeks on a monthly basis = $1,590.00
The above examples are provided to give an idea of the financial expectations for a calendar year. The frequency and duration is dependent on your individual needs and goals.
We look forward to talking with you and answering any questions you may have about the “No Surprises” Act and Good Faith Estimates.
