Insurance and Reimbursement

I am an “in network” provider for most Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBS) insurance plans. I am not in network for Blue Value and Blue Local. If you have any questions about my status with your specific plan, you should check with BCBS.

I will collect your co-pay at the time of service, and bill BCBS directly for the balance due. There are a variety of plans, and plan details frequently change. It is your responsibility to keep abreast of exactly what BCBS covers, and to alert me to any changes in coverage.

For all other managed healthcare plans, I am an “out of network” provider. Most plans limit mental health coverage, the types of treatment that are reimbursable, and often dictate length of treatment. You should review your plan details and/or call your plan administrator to see whether my services will be covered for reimbursement purposes. Plans frequently change, and it is your responsibility to be aware of your insurance coverage.

With the exception of BCBS, I do not file insurance. I will provide a detailed receipt which may aid in your reimbursement. Also, if requested, I can assist in helping you receive the benefits to which you are entitled.

You may also opt to pay for my services out of pocket, and not file an insurance claim. You can avoid insurance restrictions as well as provide an added measure of privacy with your employer and your insurance provider. It may also lessen the concern about future health or life insurance coverage and/or rate changes.
