About Fee-for-Service Counseling
Fee-for-Service Counseling may be a great option for you when you find a therapist you'd like to work with, yet he or she is not in-network with your insurance. Although this means a greater financial commitment from you, it does come with several benefits that might be worth the additional out-of-pocket expense. By choosing fee-for-service counseling, you are putting yourself in control of your treatment by being able to choose the therapist you want to see instead of being placed on a waiting list, which many in-network providers utilize. You also have the benefit of receiving higher quality care, as the counselor is not dictated by additional time-consuming insurance documentation. The minimal reporting to outside sources also provides a greater level of privacy and confidentiality when dealing with your protected healthcare information.
Another option to consider with fee-for-service counseling is that of out-of-network benefits. Not all insurance plans have this benefit, however plans which do provide this coverage can often make counseling just as affordable as seeing an in-network provider. You can find out whether your insurance plan offers out-of-network benefits simply by calling the customer service number on your insurance card and following the prompts to learn your benefit information from the automated system.
