Accurate Insurance Mental Health Benefits is Important

Benefit verifications are done as expeditiously as possible. Wait times at insurance companies have grown exponentially. We do not obtain benefits from online sources. When checking benefits, our team asks specific questions related to cost-sharing and Telehealth coverage. It is important that the information we gather is accurate and applies to an individual’s mental health plan. Our goal is to confirm the patient’s fiduciary responsibility to the provider for services rendered. If you need to have our Benefit Information Profile Page returned to you quickly for an emergency situation, please advise us and we will make every effort to get the benefits to you ASAP.

Mental Health Access Improvement Act

The Mental Health Access Improvement Act of 2021 continues to build momentum in the Senate. If passed, the proposed legislation would allow mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists to bill Medicare for counseling services. Services provided by licensed clinical mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists are covered by all private insurers and nearly all state Medicaid programs. If you support the proposed legislation, contact your Congressional representative.
