A Guide to Out of Network Benefits (OON)
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions- I am more than happy to explain or assist you so that counseling is accessible and affordable!
If I am not in your insurance network, I am considered an Out-of-Network Provider. As a client working with me, the cost of therapy is the full price of the session fee payable at the time of service. Fortunately, many of my clients have out of network benefits through their health insurance (like Cigna and Blue Cross Blue Shield) that make therapy more cost-effective and budget-friendly. Depending on your health insurance plan, your insurance company may reimburse a percentage of the cost directly to you after the session.
By utilizing your out-of-network benefits, you make the most out of your insurance plan and open up the possibilities of working with the counselor who has the expertise you need, regardless of their status with your insurance company. I offer highly specialized care for my clients so utilize these benefits so you can get the care you deserve!
How this works: Use the benefit checker below from Mentaya, a platform that helps clients get money back on out-of-network therapy sessions. To see if you qualify for reimbursement, you can use this checker to get an instant summary of your benefits:
If you qualify, Mentaya will file claims and handle the insurance paperwork to make sure you get reimbursed. They charge a 5% fee per claim and have helped people get thousands of dollars back per year. You can sign up using this link.
Note: Mentaya's goal is to save you time and money. It's completely optional, and as your therapist I do not benefit in any way from your participation.
