I am an in-network provider for First Choice insurance and for plans that allow use of the First Choice network (e.g., Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of WA Access PPO plan only). For clients with these two plans, I will bill insurance directly for sessions; copays are usually required. Many other insurance policies (e.g., Premera, Lifewise, Regence) allow for out-of-network coverage for outpatient mental health services. In this case, you would pay for services up front (see rates to the right), receive a monthly invoice to submit to your insurance company, and get reimbursed directly for, typically, a percentage of charges. For instance, if your insurance plan allows for 70% reimbursement for out-of-network mental health, you would pay me $120 for the session and get reimbursed $84 from your insurance provider. Every insurance plan is different, so please check your plan to understand your benefits and applicable deductibles prior to our first meeting.
