Long Island Mental Health Wellness Counseling, PLLC has been in network with Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield and most recently we joined Cigna Behavioral Health Care Plans. This exciting new development means that more people now have access to the high quality, evidence based counseling services that we are known for.
We are also accepting out of network benefits, and depending on your plan, these are sometimes assigned directly to the provider. This means that in some cases, your insurance plan may directly pay for our services, even if we are considered out of network providers. Some PPO (Preferred provider organization) plans give their members the benefit of choosing the providers they want to work with, and covering all or a portion of the services.
If you have out of network mental health benefits, but your insurance company will only reimburse you for the service (instead of paying the provider directly) we can also help with that process. With your written permission on file, we can submit electronic claims to your insurance company automatically after each session, and then you can expect the first reimbursement check in the mail from them typically 4-6 weeks later.
When it comes to getting help for yourself or someone you care about, financial barriers can feel overwhelming. We work with you to take some of the burden off your shoulders by dealing with your insurance company and making sure you have all the information you need about the true costs of counseling services prior to starting the process.
