You can opt-in to our simplified out-of-network reimbursement process in just a few easy steps:
Schedule Your Appointment
Get an Estimate
As you prepare to schedule your first appointment, feel free to contact your insurance carrier using the 'Behavioral Health' or 'Mental Health' phone number on the back of your insurance card. Ask them how much they reimburse for out of network mental health services.
Before Your Appointment
Request Automatic Superbills
Before your appointment, or at anytime after, let our client support team know you'd like to opt in for automatic superbills at the end of each month. Then our Electronic Health Record system, Simple Practice, will automatically generate and email you a superbill every month, which is the document insurance companies need in order to reimburse.
At the Beginning of Each Month
Submit Your Claim
Using our out of network claim submission link (provided by our client support team), you'll fill out the form required by your insurance carrier and attach the superbill. This should only take a few minutes.
In 30-45 Business Days
Once your insurance company has processed your claim, you will receive an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) and reimbursement check if eligible within 30-45 business days.
Our Reimbursement Process
The team at SCC is passionate about ensuring our clients get the treatment they need. We can provide you with the resources you require to submit your insurance claims for our services, quickly and painlessly.
Going to an out-of-network therapist can come with several benefits. They can provide highly personalized services, quick booking and more frequent sessions than in-network providers. For people that are looking to use insurance benefits for counseling, some out-of-network services are eligible for partial reimbursement.
Will I Be Reimbursed for Out-Of-Network Therapy?
In most cases, yes. You can submit your claims for out-of-network insurance reimbursement using your carrier’s online form along with the superbill automatically generated and emailed to you each month. This process means you will need to pay your therapist for the entire session when you receive their services, but your insurance company may be able to send you a check to reimburse a portion of the cost.
