We now have to ability to offer Superbills to clients with out of network insurance for reimbursement purposes. We are told frequently that great care is hard to find, so we are very excited to offer this opportunity.
A Superbill is a receipt for therapy services, which includes the diagnosis and treatment plan highlights required by insurance companies. While reimbursement is not guaranteed, many clients are successfully attaining direct payments using this process.
Clients pay for each session out of pocket and receive a monthly superbill, along with their billing statement, to submit to their insurance provider for reimbursement.
We always recommend that potential clients confirm use of this Superbill process with their insurance provider prior to scheduling with us.
