Benefits of Private Pay
Private Pay ensures that your mental health treatment/services and your private information will not be disclosed to a third party, including insurance companies, unless authorized in writing by you or under the circumstances underlined in the consent form.
Insurance providers require submitting a specific mental health diagnosis for authorization and disbursement of benefits, and sometimes only certain diagnoses are covered. To avoid concerns of insurance coverage affecting the diagnosis and treatment, as well as the diagnosis becoming part of your permanent record, many people prefer private pay.
While every concern requires some diagnosis and treatment, the reality is that not every mental health concern requires a formal diagnosis that fits into the insurance parameters. At Linda Strano Burton, PLLC, a wellness model that embraces a comprehensive and integrative approach is followed. Your therapist will take into consideration mental. medical, and behavioral aspects over several sessions and will consult with all professionals involved in your care to produce a careful and thoughtful diagnosis.
Some people feel that the insurance processes may dictate the care they can and cannot receive. Providers must be included in their list, only diagnosable conditions might be covered, the length of care is determined, and often only a limited number of sessions are authorized. In addition, reimbursement of services may change for various reasons.
With private pay, only you and your counselor together decide the best care plan to work on your concerns.
If you wish to seek reimbursement from your insurance carrier, I can provide a detailed invoice outlining the services provided to you, which will include a formal diagnosis. You submit the superbill directly to your insurance for reimbursement. Submitting a superbill does not guarantee reimbursement. Please contact your insurance carrier to inquire
