Sheila Levine, LCSW - Counseling Services
Q: Can I use my health insurance to pay for counseling services?
A:  I do not accept insurance, but you may use your health flex saving account.  Psychotherapist is considered a covered medical expense.

 Q:  Why is it better to just leave the insurance out of it?

 A:  Insurance claims require a diagnosis.  They may also request a treatment plan with goals and estimated time frames. This creates an insurance history that may follow you to your next plan.  Many people prefer to pay directly out-of-pocket to see a counselor for the sake of privacy and peace of mind.
