Frequently Asked Questions

Do you bill Insurance, and if so, who are you in network with?

Yes, I do bill insurance.  I am in-network (INN) with several major insurance companies,  including AETNA, Pacific Source, First Choice Health, Lyra, Moda, and  Blue Cross Blue Shield.

 

Do you bill for Insurance Companies that you are not in network with? 

For services with insurance companies that I am out of Network (OON) or not contracted with, I do not bill. However, I am more than happy to provide you with a superbill. This document can be sent to your insurance for reimbursement, making the process of getting your therapy sessions covered as easy as possible. I am also available to answer any questions you may have about this process. 

 

How much will I have to pay for Therapy sessions?

The cost of therapy sessions depends on various factors such as your insurance provider, co-pays, and co-insurance, and whether I am IN or OON with your insurance company.  If I am OON for your insurance, it's best to contact your insurance to understand what they will and will not cover. Surprisingly, you may find that you have these benefits, and your out-of-pocket fee will not be as much as you think.  For those not using insurance, my fees range from $150 to $200, depending on the type of session needed at the time. 

**If you choose not to use your insurance or do not have insurance, please note the No Surprise Act below.**

 

Can I set up an appointment online, or do I need to call first?

You may send a message through the 'Contact Me page or email me directly at jennifer@jenniferfcounseling.com I will contact you by phone or email so that we can determine if we will be a good fit to work together.

What services do you offer?

I am currently offering individual therapy both in person and "virtual"/online sessions,** through a HIPPA compliant website.  At this time, most insurance companies are paying for this service, but as always, please be sure to check with your individual plan.  If you have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to contact me.

What is the No Suprise Act mean for you?

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your healthcare will cost. The No Surprises Act requires all healthcare providers to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the total bill for all non-emergency services.

  • You should be given a written Good Faith Estimate at least 1 business day before treatment begins.

  • If you receive a bill that is more than $400 above your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services at www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-368-1019.
