National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC)
Restored Faith Counseling and Consulting is considered an out-of-network provider, which means that we do not bill insurance companies directly, and all services are paid for privately. However, we do not feel finances should hinder one from receiving mental health services, so we are glad to work with clients at a rate that fits their budget. We are happy to provide our clients with appointment receipts, so that they may seek potential reimbursement through their insurance; however, we do not guarantee reimbursement.
Accepted Forms Of Payment
Restored Faith Counseling and Consulting accepts all major credit cards, cash, and checks.
Why Consider Paying Privately or “Out of Pocket”?
In order to have therapy services covered under insurance, a mental health diagnosis must be made. This information then becomes a part of your permanent health care record. This may lead to limitations such as a denial of quality life insurance, specific occupations, or health insurance later on.
Many clients choose not to involve insurance companies in their mental health care. Their counseling is not limited by the diagnosis, treatment plan, or session limits that health insurance companies dictate. Insurance companies often limit the number of sessions and even the type of therapy. Many insurance companies do not cover couples/relational or family therapy. Additionally, since a mental health diagnosis must be made to obtain reimbursement, the insurance company often will request a significant amount of information about you in order to be covered. The insurance company can review all of your records at their discretion.
