Out of Network Reimbursement
While Venus Rising is currently only a participating provider with CareFirst and Blue Cross Blue Shield, your health insurance policy with other insurance companies might cover-in full or in part-out of network services by reimbursing you directly. Please contact your insurance company to verify your plans coverage and reimbursement process for psychotherapy services. To streamline such Out of Network reimbursement many patients use smart phone apps (e.g. Reimbursify, Better) to process their claims. Please research the risks and benefits of these apps before using. I provide clients with the necessary documentation of payments and services for filing claims with your insurance.
I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance company in order to help determine your benefits:
– Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
– Does my health insurance plan include out-of-network benefits?
– Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
– Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
– Do I need a written referral from my PCP/primary care provider (i.e. MD, PA-C, CRNP) in order for services to be covered?
Flex Spending Accounts (FSA)/Health Savings Accounts (HSA)
Therapy and assessment services are covered healthcare services for payment or reimbursement from Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA). I uses a credit card processing service that allows me to directly charge FSA/HSA credit cards as a verified healthcare provider. Individual session “invoices” and monthly “superbills” are automatically generated for all clients. Individuals using a FSA/HSA can use these to document services rendered if documentation is requested by your FSA/HSA account administrator. They can also be used to seek reimbursement from FSA/HSAs if you pay for services with cash, check, or a non-FSA/HSA credit card.
Cash and all major credit cards, including cards for Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA) are accepted.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 36 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged up to the full rate for late cancelations and/or no show session.
