Many couples and families would like to get counseling, but they worry about the cost. At Taylor Counseling Group, we are in-network with most major insurance providers and encourage our clients to utilize this valuable means of getting the compassionate care they need.
However, how can you know for sure if your insurance covers couples counseling, marriage & family counseling and play therapy? Navigating the ins and outs of insurance coverage for counseling, especially couples and family counseling, can be confusing. So, let’s explore some practical steps you can take to verify your family’s coverage.
Check With Your Insurance Plan
The only way to know if your insurance will pay for couples and family counseling services is to check. Many health insurance plans include counseling benefits — for you and your family. Some insurance companies provide full or partial coverage, while other insurance providers only cover certain services under specific conditions.
The paperwork provided when you sign up for insurance can be confusing to decipher. So, we recommend calling your health insurance company on the phone to speak with a representative. Ask if you have mental health benefits that extend to couples or family counseling. You’ll also want to know:
- The number of sessions covered.
- Which counseling providers are in-network.
- Your co-pay, or the amount you will have to pay out of pocket.
- Whether or not there are any deductibles.
- Whether you need medical confirmation or approval from your physician.
Speak With Our Support Staff
Once you speak with your insurance company, you’ll have a better idea of whether or not your health insurance plan offers coverage for couples or family counseling sessions. However, you can also get your health insurance verified with the help of our support staff at Taylor Counseling Group.
Before you meet with one of our caring couples or family counselors, we can verify your insurance benefits and answer many important insurance-related questions, such as:
- Are we in-network with your insurance company?
- How do we take care of insurance paperwork?
- How much payment is required upfront as a co-pay?
Please be aware, verification of your insurance benefits does not guarantee that you’ll be fully covered on the part of your insurance provider. In cases like these, we ask that clients make up the full cost of couples or family counseling sessions.
