If you plan to submit your own SUPERBILL form to your insurance provider for reimbursement, 1st contact your insurance provider prior to your appointments to understand the details of your mental health benefits. 

If you are eligible to use your out-of-network benefits, we can provide the form or what is commonly referred to as a SUPERBILL as noted above that you may be able to use to submit a claim with your insurance. These plans vary widely and  may reimburse patients; the total cost of each of our sessions depends on your individual plan & deductibles.
