We are committed to providing you with the best services possible and have found that third-party payers, such as insurance companies, can potentially interfere with effective treatment and raise issues regarding confidentiality. For example, they may request medical records to further justify the need for therapy. Insurance companies can also limit the number of therapy sessions and will require a mental health diagnosis to be reimbursed. In some instances, therapy will be beneficial but there is not an appropriate diagnosis so reimbursement would be denied. While having a documented diagnosis should not affect obtaining insurance or changing providers, renewing a life insurance policy may be affected as a diagnosis would be considered a preexisting condition.
