I am totally committed to the privacy of my clients. For this reason, I am not a member of any managed care organizations or insurance companies. I am an independent provider. Your confidentiality is protected by state law and the tenets of my profession. Files would be released only if a life is threatened.
Please be aware that a therapist who is an “in-network” provider must submit very personal information to managed care and insurance companies in order to pay for sessions. This often is a breach of client confidentiality because such reports are mailed or faxed to non-clinical staff and then logged onto large company computers. This information often becomes a permanent part of your medical file and could increase the cost of your health premiums.
Working with Your Insurance Company
Of course, I will work with your insurance company and managed care organization so that you may submit my receipt for services directly for reimbursement.
