Insurance

Life Transformation Counseling counselors are considered an “out-of-network provider”. Essentially, this means clients pay Life Transformation Counseling directly for services provided and then seek reimbursement from their insurance company. Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. If your plan does provide reimbursement, we will be happy to provide you with the necessary documentation to submit to your insurance company. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

 

•Does my insurance plan provide coverage for mental health services?
•What is my deductible and has it been met?
•How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
•What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
•How much does my plan reimburse for out-of-network providers?
•Is approval required from my primary care physician?

 

Life Transformation Counseling cannot guarantee coverage or reimbursement under your insurance plan.
