Counseling Creations is currently moving to Out-of-Network Insurance for most Insurance companies. If you have Out-of-Network insurance benefits, we will provide a superbill so that your insurance can reimburse you. Current clients will be notified if the change includes their insurance company. Advance notice will be given to all current clients who are using insurance benefits if their insurance is moving to Out-of-Network status.
For new clients, we are now accepting self pay, or clients who can use Out-of-Network benefits as we make the transition.
Disclaimer: Counseling Creations can use Out-of-Network benefits with ALL insurance companies. Although we do not take medicare, we can print a receipt that you can submit to be reimbursed.

Counseling Creations will send an itemized receipt of payment for services upon request. It will be sent at the end of each month and include your provider's name, the provider's NPI, the provider's license number, the federal tax ID, and your diagnosis codes. It is the client's responsibility to send this receipt into the insurance company to be reimbursed.
