Insurance

JCarter Counseling currently accepts the following insurance:

 

 

 

What if I would still like to receive counseling from JCarter Counseling? 

Many services can be reimbursed by your insurance if you have “Out of Network Benefits.” JCarter Counseling 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?

The No Surprises Act and Your Rights
as a Mental Health Consumer

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the No Surprises Act of 2022, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

• Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

• If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

• Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call the No Surprises Help Desk at 1-800-985-3059.
