Insurance:

We are preferred providers with Tricare but we are not partnered with any insurance companies. This means that we do not accept insurance reimbursement directly. Whether you use an out of network or in-network provider, you may have a deductible that must be met before services are covered at any rate.

Ask these questions of your insurance provider:

  • Do I have mental health benefits?
  • What are my benefits for an out-of-network provider?
  • How do I submit invoices for reimbursement?
  • For all insurance carriers, we will provide you with a receipt for reimbursement in the form of your monthly invoice or sometimes referred to as a Superbill.
