Insurance is not accepted for payment of services rendered. Many policies will allow for some reimbursement for treatment by out-of-network providers. If you seek reimbursement under an insurance policy you will likely be required to waive your confidentiality where the insurance carrier is concerned. That will typically require an appropriate mental health diagnosis be given and communicated, and could involve providing of copies of treatment records, which the insurance carrier will be required to hold as confidential under HIPAA laws. If you wish to submit a claim for reimbursement to your carrier, the paperwork suitable for that purpose called a superbill will be provided.
Since the Affordable Care Act was passed, health insurance must treat mental health services on parity with medical services. Also, carriers are required to offer insurance coverage for children under their parents’ policy until they are 26 years old. Also, pre-existing conditions can no longer be excluded from coverage.
