Psychotherapy is an investment for your future just like purchasing real estate, investing in the stock market, saving for your retirement, and getting a certification to advance your career. Like those forms of investment, counseling can yield a great return on your investment. The insight you may gain about your life and the skills you can learn to apply to your life can be transformative for some individuals.

Your insurance plan may have out-of-network (OON) coverage. We encourage you to call your insurance provider and request information about your policy. If you choose to use your out-of-network benefits, you would pay us directly and we will provide you with a statement of services (i.e., superbill). Then, you will submit the claim and superbill to your insurance company. Your insurance company will then process the claim and either apply the amount you’ve paid to your deductible or reimburse you a percentage if you’ve already met your deductible. Dr. Rodriguez-Siuts does not guarantee that you’ll receive reimbursement (or how much reimbursement) from your insurance company.
Here are some helpful questions to ask your insurance representative:
Do I have out-of-network mental health benefits?
Do I have an out-of-network deductible? And has it been met?
Do I have a co-payment or co-insurance for out-of-network services?
Am I required to obtain a pre-authorization before receiving services?
Does my plan cover procedural codes 90791 (Initial Assessment) and 90837 (60 minute therapy session)?
If I have out-of-network benefits, will I be reimbursed the full amount I paid or a percentage? What percentage?
GOOD FAITH ESTIMATES You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services when the patient requests this information. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. Though it can be difficult to estimate how long therapy will be, our office will do our best to assist with this estimate. If given a Good Faith Estimate, please make sure to save a copy as you might need this in the future. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
