As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, my professional services do qualify for patient reimbursement under most insurance plans. Coverage varies widely from policy to policy, so you may want to review your benefits to determine your expected reimbursement. I am considered “out-of-network.”
Most insurance companies will not reimburse specifically for “marriage counseling,” “couples counseling,” or “relationship counseling.” The procedure code I use for couples that is generally reimbursable is called “conjoint psychotherapy.” This procedure code is 908.47. Use this language when inquiring with your insurance about reimbursement for couples counseling.
My services are provided directly to you, and your payment is made directly to me at the time of each session. If you decide to use your insurance, you can file for reimbursement with your insurance carrier, using the statement I will provide.
