We understand that having health insurance can be important when you have medical issues and expenses. However, many insurance companies do not pay for couples counseling as they do not see relationship struggles as a medical problem.
And we agree – relationship issues are not medical problems. That said, you may find therapists that are willing to take your medical insurance for counseling.
Using your medical insurance for counseling has some risks involved to you though. You see, in order to use your medical insurance, you must be given a mental disorder diagnosis which will now be listed on your medical records. This can cause problems later when you might be asked “have you ever been diagnosed with a mental illness?” on a job application or when applying for health insurance or life insurance.
We want to help you and your relationships – not potentially cause you problems later due to a diagnosis on your records. That is why we do not take health insurance as reimbursement.
If you have a PPO and want to discuss getting a receipt to turn in for reimbursement, please call 949.220.3211 and ask to speak directly to our Director, Casey Truffo.
