We accept credit card payments through our secure automatic payment system. We also offer cash, Zelle and PayPal options.
We don't currently accept insurance due to reasons listed below but we do offer superbills which your insurance may accept for reimbursement and most insurance will apply counseling services towards your out of pocket deducible. Please check with your insurance provider for any questions and procedures to submit.
Reasons we don't accept insurance:
Insurance providers require a diagnosis, since we work with teens and young adults we don't like to add a label to our clients permanent record when sometimes it's a temporary situation that resolves with time and maturity.
Insurance providers determine their own reimbursement rates, usually about 60% of a counselors out of pocket rate. Which means many counselors have to take on more clients each week. This can cause work-life balance issues and decrease self care for your counselor. This is can lead to ethical concerns because counselors know the importance of the need to take care of themselves before they can care for others.
Insurance providers can audit a counselors files without additional consent, which means your therapy notes maybe seen by a non-therapist and we can-not protect the information once it's out of our hands.
Insurance providers can dictate how a counselor can provide care to a client. They will only reimburse for what they consider "evidence based practices" which means they may refuse to pay for specialty areas of care. Since we use multiple modalities of counseling it could restrict therapeutic care from your counselor.
Insurance providers can deny claims, delay payment, or retroactively deny claims (even years later), and require money to be paid back. If this happens the client is ultimately responsible for the cost.
Insurance providers require added overhead costs from Balance Counseling and Wellness, due to claims processing, follow up inquires, and the hoops they require for all of the above requirements.
We also offer a sliding fee option. Contact us to apply!
