Insurance

Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
  • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

Mental health services through Compass Counseling Group, LLC may be covered by insurance only as part of out-of-network benefits. This means that you, the client,are responsible for payment at the time of service. However, If you would like to access your out-of-network benefits, CCG can provide you with a Statement for Reimbursement form (also called a Superbill) for you to submit directly to your insurance company for partial reimbursement.

Please keep in mind that in order that to have therapy services covered under insurance, a mental health diagnosis must be made. This then becomes a part of your permanent health care record. Additionally, since a mental health diagnosis must be made to obtain reimbursement, the insurance company has to know a lot of information about you to be covered. The insurance company can review all of your records at their discretion.

For this reason, many clients choose NOT to involve insurance companies in their mental health care. Their counseling is not limited by the diagnosis, treatment plan, or session limits that health insurance companies dictate. Insurance companies often limit the number of sessions and even the type of therapy. Certain insurance companies do not cover couples/relational or family therapy.

By paying privately or out of pocket, we can assure private pay clients of the highest degree of privacy, flexibility and control of their mental health record allowed by Connecticut state law, since our records are exempt from insurance reporting and random compliance audits. Our work is off record.

In addition, many insurance companies require a deductible to be met before they start paying, so you may be paying out of pocket anyway. For those who qualify, we have a sliding scale.

We will work collaboratively to decide how often to attend therapy and you decide what you want to focus on. You have the control, not the insurance company.

Sincerely, Clifford LaMotta and Belle Lopes
