Health Insurance Coverage
Our practice is considered an Out-of-Network Provider by most insurance companies. This means that the majority of clients who have health insurance are eligible to be reimbursed a significant portion of their fees.
Rates for Psychiatric Services

To determine if you will be reimbursed for services by your insurance provider, the first thing you should do is call them. Check your coverage carefully and make sure you understand their answers. Determining if you will be reimbursed is your responsibility, prior to beginning treatment. Keep in mind that your records could be requested by the insurance company if you file a claim for reimbursement. Upon request, Equilibrium Mental Health will provide a receipt “superbill” for you to easily submit to your insurance company.
Questions to Ask Your Insurance Company
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- How much does my plan reimburse for an out-of-network provider? (What percentage of the fee will I be reimbursed?)
- Is approval required from my primary care physician? Is pre-authorization required?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session? Is there a limit to the amount of time allowed per session?
- Are there any restrictions regarding the type of therapy or the practitioner’s credentials?
- Are there any other restrictions I should know about, or any other questions I should be asking?
