JCarter Counseling currently accepts
What if JCarter Counseling does not take my insurance?
Many services can be reimbursed by your insurance if you have “Out of Network Benefits.” If I don’t take your insurance, I can provide you with a ‘Superbill,’ which you can submit to your insurance provider for direct reimbursement.
*Reimbursement is subject to insurance approval. Please verify coverage with your insurance prior to establishing services.
Here are some important questions to ask your insurance company:
Do I have out-of-network mental health benefits?
Is any pre-approval required before obtaining out-of-network mental health services in order to be reimbursed?
If I have out-of-network benefits, will I be reimbursed the full amount or a portion of what I paid?
Do I have a deductible and if so, what is it?
What documentation do I need to submit for reimbursement?
How do I submit documentation for reimbursement?
