While some therapists also take other insurances (which can be viewed on their profiles), all therapists at Healthy Synergy are in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield and affiliate organizations and companies (i.e. CareFirst, Anthem, BlueChoice, etc.)
Healthy Synergy therapists are out-of-network providers with most insurance companies. If you choose to contact your health insurance carrier, you may find our Guide to Accessing Your Mental Health Benefits useful in helping to determine your mental health benefits. We request payment at the time of your visit, and we will provide you with a receipt at the end of each session which you can submit to your insurance company for obtaining your out-of-network reimbursement. We will assist you in working through this process and support you in receiving any benefits you are eligible to receive.
Choosing to Pay Privately
Clients sometimes decide not to use their insurance to pay for their mental health care. Insurance companies can place many restrictions on the provision of mental health care and may dictate many aspects of the therapy process including treatment planning, type of therapy provided, and session limits. For instance, some insurance companies do not cover couples or family therapy.
Another reason you may choose not to use your insurance benefits is because they require that we provide you with a mental health diagnosis. Unfortunately, having a mental health diagnosis in your record may lead to a denial or limitations to a life insurance policy that you may obtain in the future. Additionally, the insurance company may require access to your record to verify an accurate diagnosis and need for care. Paying privately out of pocket ensures that you receive the highest degree of privacy and control over your mental health record.
Finally, many insurance companies require that you meet a deductible before they start reimbursing for the care you receive. In this case, you will be paying out of pocket anyway.
We will work with you throughout the therapy process to decide how often and how long therapy will occur in order for it to meet your needs. This allows you to have a higher level of control over the process, not the insurance companies.
