Wanting to use your insurance? No problem.

We are currently an in-network provider with the following insurances:

PreferredOne, Medicaid/Medical Assistance (MA), Ucare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, HealthPartners, Cigna, Medica, Optum, Aetna, United Healthcare (UHC), United Behavioral Health (UBH), SelectCare, United Medical Resources (UMR), MultiPlan, Private Healthcare Systems (PHCS), and PHCS Savility insurance.

For all other insurances, we offer out-of-network services.  FSA/HSA accounts may also be used to pay for services. We understand that insurance benefits can be confusing; we are happy to help you navigate payment and reimbursement options if you choose to use insurance.

 

Why consider choosing a self pay option? It’s simple.

When insurance companies are involved in your care there are many hoops to jump through and regulations that do not consider your unique needs. Insurance companies tend to funnel their members to large clinics that focus on the billable service, often ignoring the outcome. This approach commonly results in losing sight of the client’s goals and loss of focus on achieving wellness that no longer requires treatment; clients become numbers rather than people.

Why receive “cookie cutter” treatment dictated by your insurance company, when you can receive care that integrates a variety of effective approaches treating the mind, body, and spirit that result in long term wellness? When you pay privately, we are able to be creative in the development of a treatment plan to support you as a whole person. While we offer traditional “talk” therapy, we may also integrate body sensation awareness (somatization), movement, art, music, mindfulness and meditation to ensure that we are addressing the needs of the body and spirit as well as the mind.

Many people today have high deductible insurance plans. With plans that require thousands of dollars up front before your insurance benefits kick in, you are already paying out of pocket for your services. Why not bypass the “red tape” of insurance and get the services you want without a third party intervening?

When using insurance for mental health services, a diagnosis is required. This diagnosis becomes a permanent part of your medical record, which follows you throughout your life. Often, people prefer to seek counseling for relationship issues, difficulty with transitions, or simply general support in coping with life. These are not pathological issues and should not require a medical diagnosis, as demanded by health insurance companies.

Overall, private pay is a much simpler, efficient, and personalized way to receive mental health services. You get what you need, and often at a lower cost to you financially and fundamentally.

Sliding Fee Scale is available upon request to those who can demonstrate financial need.
