FEES AND INSURANCE
Our fees at CPC are similar to other providers in the San Francisco Bay Area with similar levels of training.
We are considered “out-of-network” providers, and do not work directly with any insurance companies. Some insurance plans offer coverage for mental health services. We encourage anyone interested in working with us to check with their insurance provider about your coverage for an “out-of-network” psychologist.
We also suggest clarifying whether telehealth sessions are eligible for reimbursement, as policies can differ across insurance providers. Upon request, we can provide a statement for services (a "superbill") that can be submitted to an insurance company.
YOU MAY WISH TO ASK YOUR INSURANCE PROVIDER:
Does my plan have any out-of-network coverage for mental health services? (be sure to specify billing codes)
Is there an out-of-network deductible, and if so, what is it?
How many mental health sessions does my plan cover per year?
What information/forms do I need to submit in order to receive out-of-network reimbursement?
Where do I submit reimbursement claims?
Are there any time limitations for filing claims?
