It is possible that your insurance company will reimburse some of your expenses. However, I will be considered an “out-of-network” provider. If you like, I will provide you with a monthly statement that you can submit to your insurance company; however, you (not your insurance company) are responsible for full payment of fees.
Note: As a rule, insurance companies will not pay for services that are not based on a diagnosed mental illness. Therefore, couples counseling is not covered in insurance policies. And it is unethical and illegal to see couples and bill a diagnosis for one of the individuals.
