LIFE ENRICHMENT COUNSELING CENTER, LLC
Registration and Billing Overview
Billing for Individual and Family Counseling
At Life Enrichment Counseling Center, we are committed to providing the best services to our clients. We encourage clients to clarify their benefit information prior to beginning any treatment so that you understand what portion of services will be covered by insurance and what portion will be paid privately. We accept Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (PPO, HMO and Federal Plans) and CareFirst Blue Cross and Blue Shield (PPO and Federal Plans only) for individual and family counseling services. If you are unsure about whether your insurance plan covers services at Life Enrichment Counseling, please call us.
Please keep in mind that all charges are the responsibility of the patient regardless of your insurance coverage. We will be happy to file claims with your insurance carrier. Full payment for deductibles and co-pays are due at the time of service. Credit and debits cards are accepted for services rendered at all our office locations.
Out of Pocket Counseling Rates
Many clients choose not to utilize their insurance benefits because:
1) It enhances client privacy within the counseling setting, it promotes a focus on health and strength rather than a focus on pathology since insurance companies require that the client be given a mental illness diagnosis for counseling services, and
2) It enhances choice and power within counseling.
The cost of Individual and Family Counseling sessions (53 to 60 minutes) with a Master’s level Psychotherapist is $150 and a Clinical Psychologist is $175.
Our Psychological Testing cost is $175 per hour.
If we do not accept your insurance plan and you want to use your health care benefits, we will be happy to provide you with the appropriate paperwork to facilitate your insurance claims. We recommend that you check with your insurance company prior to the first visit to understand your outpatient counseling benefits.
You should ask your insurance company about:
1) coverage for “outpatient counseling services”,
2) the percentage of reimbursement for an “out of network psychotherapist, and
3) any deductible amount.
