To determine if your insurance covers counseling, it is best to call your insurance company.  Usually on the back of your insurance card is a number for Mental Health and Substance Abuse.  When you call this number, ask what coverage you have for individual outpatient counseling.  Do you have out-of-network coverage?  Do you have a deductible that needs to be met first?  How much is that deductible?  What will your co-pay cost be?  How many counseling sessions are you allowed?  Some insurance companies will pay a portion of the counseling fee for out-of-network providers, but the deductible and copay costs may be higher.

Some people choose not to use their insurance because it requires me to submit a claim to your insurance with a diagnosis.  They feel more comfortable maintaining maximum privacy regarding their counseling experience.
