You might want to pay for therapy privately if:
you don’t want a mental health diagnosis on your record (insurance companies require this before they will pay)
you don’t want the insurance company to dictate how your therapy is done
you have a high deductible– your insurance company will require you to pay the full session fee until your deductible is met. (And they can still dictate how your therapy is done while you are paying!)
If your insurance allows you to submit medical bills from out-of-network providers, I will be happy to provide you with that special statement, called a superbill, on a monthly basis. I cannot guarantee any reimbursement and I do not assist with filing claims beyond providing the superbill. However, if you’d like information on a company that will help you for a very modest fee, read this.
I am currently a participating provider for Kansas Medicaid insurance plans only. You may have noticed that my primary office location is in Missouri. I am approved as a provider for Kansas Medicaid at my Belton, Missouri office.
Reduced Fee Services
I offer reduced-fee services in 2 ways:
I reserve some of my caseload for working with people whose primary income is disability. Please call me to see if I have any openings available.
For people who have no insurance or who have a policy with a ridiculous deductible, I offer sessions for $30-60, based on income. For more information and to see if I have any openings, please call me at (816) 226-4678.
