I am an in-network provider with Medicare in NY.
While I am also in-network with Blue Cross, I am in the process of discontinuing my contract with them. As a result, I am not taking any clients with Blue Cross until my contract with them is ended.
You may receive partial reimbursement from your insurance company if your plan covers services with “out-of-network providers.” I can bill your insurance company directly for their portion of payment, or I can provide you a monthly receipt, which you can submit to the insurance carrier for reimbursement. When you call your insurance company, you may wish to ask:
Does your plan cover “out-of-network outpatient mental health services”?
What is your annual deductible and has it been met?
What is the coverage amount or percentage per therapy session for a licensed clinical social worker in New York State? See below for specific "CPT" codes for each type of sessions.
At the end of the conversation, you’ll want to be able to say “After I pay a deductible of $___, the insurance company will pay ___% of $____.”
