Please call your insurance before you seek out these services. If you are coming in as a couple be sure to use the words "Family Counseling" not "marriage Counseling" . Many companies will say they do not cover marriage counseling. Ask if you have a co-pay or co-insurance, this will help you to determine your actual cost of these services upfront.
Also ask if you have a deductible, if you do, ask for the remaining balance amount. If you do have a deductible you will then be responsible to pay the full fee for each session which is determined by your insurance company and can range from $70 to $125 per session.
Only services that are medically necessary can be billed to medical insurance which means that there needs to be a mental health issue which is diagnosable. If a client presents without a diagnosable mental health issue they may receive services by paying out of pocket.
Many clients prefer to pay out of pocket which results in less paperwork and more control of their related information and documentation.
