Why Consider Paying Privately or “Out of Pocket”?
In order to have therapy services covered under insurance, a mental health diagnosis must be made. Therefore, some of our clients choose to pay out of pocket for their services. Also, some clients choose not to involve their insurance that they may be able to maintain a higher level of control over how many sessions, what types of sessions and where there sessions are held. Insurance companies often limit the number of sessions and some companies may not cover couples or relationship therapy. You may opt out of utilizing your insurance if you prefer. We respect your choice and will work with you regarding what you decide is best.
By paying privately or out of pocket, your records are exempt from insurance reporting. We are able to assure private pay clients the highest degree of privacy, flexibility, and control of their mental health record allowed by Florida state law. At Live Life Counseling and Consulting, we work collaboratively with our clients to decide how often you should attend therapy, and you decide what you want to focus on.
This allows you have the control, not the insurance company.
