Insurance Panels

Insurance carriers will cover my services in most cases. However, the client is ultimately responsible to insure that all charges get paid. If you want your insurance company to help pay for the cost of counseling, it is essential that you verify coverage with your insurance carrier in advance of your first appointment. There are always exceptions, and some insurance companies use more than one panel, so coverage depends on the actual policy you have. Below is a list of the companies with which I have contracts. Inclusion of your insurance company in this list is no guarantee of coverage. The absence of your company from this list does not necessarily mean that my services won't be covered. Most insurers make some provision for and/or will allow exceptions on a case-by-case basis for out-of-network providers (providers with whom they do not have contracts).

Insurance is not a guarantee of payment.

I have included web addresses in this list for your convenience:
