Doan Counseling is a BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS) Provider. We find that BCBS does an excellent job of cooperating with our treatment approach, while maintaining your confidentiality.
We offer a sliding scale and can provide you with documentation for insurance out of network.
Benefits of choosing an out-of-network provider
If you are not BCBS insured, Doan Counseling is also an out-of-network provider.
One of the greatest advantages of opting for an out-of-network provider is that you—not your insurance company—choose your doctor. No insurance company will put an artificial time limit on you for getting better. We go through treatment at your pace in the manner that best facilitates your recovery.
Going out-of-network also brings financial benefits. Before approving your sessions, most insurance companies also require that in-network provider submit regular treatment plans. This creates a lack of clarity and often results in surprise bills.
Additionally, insurance companies often dictate treatment planning and ask for your personal information, which infringes on your confidentiality. Opting for an out-of-network provider gives you greater control over your health and mental wellbeing!
How to find out what your insurance covers
Every plan is different. To find out more call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask the following questions.
- Do I have mental/behavioral health coverage?
- Do I have a deductible? If so, how much has been met?
- If non-BCBS PPO
- Do I have out of network benefits?
- What is the coverage for an out of network therapist?
- Is preauthorization required?
While insurance can help fund your treatment, it can be overwhelming and confusing. Therapy should not be the cause of any more stress or anxiety. If you have any questions about fees or insurance, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will do our best to help you understand your insurance benefits.Please share this post!
