Out-of-network – This term was daunting to me when I didn’t know what exactly it meant. It’s not really that tough. If your insurance is not one that I am in network with, many insurances have what is called “out-of-network” benefits. In this kind of benefit, there is usually a deductible amount, amount of expenses that must be paid out of pocket before an insurer will pay any expenses. Call your insurance company and ask them what your out-of-network benefits are and what your deductible amount is and I can handle the paperwork for you. You can also ask what the reasonable and customary rate is for a a “90834” psychotherapy session. That’s the amount you have to pay per session to your therapist each session till your deductible is reached.
To recap, here’s what you need to ask the insurance company associate:
- Do I have out-of-network benefits?
- Do I have a deductible? If so, what is the amount of the deductible?
- What is the reasonable and customary rate for an LCSW Psychotherapist for code 90834 session (45m session) ?
If all this insurance stuff is daunting to you (as it is for many), contact me and provide me with your insurance ID, your date of birth and your address associated with your insurance – this the information I need to call the insurance company on your behalf – and I can find out your out-of-network benefits for you.
