Payment is expected at the time of service. Cash, check and major credit cards are all acceptable forms of payment. (checks made payable to Straub Counseling and Consultation LLC)
I do not accept insurance for payment. I can, however, provide you with a receipt upon your request with all the of all necessary information required by your insurance company in order to reimburse you. If you are interested in this, contact your insurance company and ask what your out-of-network benefits are for mental health services. It will still be your responsibility to submit the receipt into your insurance company for reimbursement.
Please be aware that insurance companies require a diagnosis and will not pay for services that are not medically necessary, such as performance improvement services.
Benefits of utilizing an out-of-network provider
- Insurance providers require a clinical diagnosis for mental health services. By utilizing an out-of-network provider, this information remains discreet and eliminates the possibility of a clinical diagnosis potentially affecting the cost of your coverage or even your ability to acquire coverage for health or disability at a later time. - YOU are able to choose your counselor, rather than decide from a list of names that your insurance company provides for you - YOU, and your counselor, are able to decide the appropriate number and frequency of sessions for your unique situation- not your insurance provider
24 hours notice is required to cancel or change and appointment. A cancellation fee of half the rate will be charged for cancellations or changes with less than 24 hours notice or failure to show.
