Insurance Information

IN-PERSON SERVICES ONLY AVAILABLE IN STAR, IDAHO.

 

TELETHERAPY SERVICES AVAILABLE IN IDAHO, CALIFORNIA & FLORIDA You must check with your insurance company to make sure they cover teletherapy prior to scheduling a session. Also, some insurances require a certain Teletherapy system to be used and at this time I use Doxy which is HIPAA compliant but some particular insurances may not allow teletherapy on a system other than their own. My license requires that for teletherapy, you must be located in either Idaho, California or Florida at the time of the session.

IDAHO INSURANCES ACCEPTED: Idaho Medicaid / Optum Idaho, Tri-Care, Regence Blue Shield, Idaho Blue Cross, IPN, Cigna, Aetna PPO and Aetna Whole Health Plans, Mountain Health Co-Op (Link, Access and Engage Plans), Bright Path, St. Luke's Health Partners, Pacific Source (BrightIdea) and Select Health Commercial Plans. It is your responsibility to check if I am in-network with your specific plan.

CALIFORNIA INSURANCES ACCEPTED: Anthem Blue Cross PPO, Blue Shield PPO, HealthNet, MHN, Cigna, Aetna (some plans only cover Teletherapy through TeleDoc which I am not able to use), United Health Care (United Behavioral Health), and Tri-Care. It is your responsibility to check if I am in-network with your specific plan. 

FLORIDA INSURANCES ACCEPTED: I am not in-network with any specific Florida insurance plans but you may be able to use your Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO plans for Telehealth (most HMO plans are restrictive to FL providers only).  Also, the following insurances generally allow me to bill from out-of-state: Cigna, Aetna (some plans only cover Teletherapy through TeleDoc which I am not able to use), United Health Care (United Behavioral Health), and Tri-Care. It is your responsibility to check if I am in-network with your specific plan.

If I am not in-network with your insurance company, I can provide you with a SuperBill which allows you to seek partial reimbursement from your insurance company using your Out-of-Network Benefits.  The way a SuperBill works is that you would be seeing me as a cash-pay client and I will provide you with a SuperBill showing that you paid for a session.  You would then submit the SuperBill directly to your insurance company and they will then reimburse you directly at the Out-of-Network rate that is available on your plan.  I cannot verify your Out-of-Network benefits for you, so you will need to call your insurance company directly and inquire about this option.  Most clients report getting reimbursed in approximately 1-2 weeks.

NEUROFEEDBACK RATES

When used as a complementary therapeutic intervention within your counseling session, neurofeedback is generally covered by insurance. However, it is recommended that when choosing this option, you attend sessions at least twice a week to allow appropriate time for both services. The neurofeedback portion of a counseling session will be shorter than a full neurofeedback session and will be approximately 15 minutes of your full session.

  • Initial Intake Session $120 and all sessions thereafter are $100
