Notice Regarding “No Surprises Act” & Good Faith Estimates (January 2022)

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.

About Insurance Benefits

Collaborative Counseling, LLC is not equipped to accept or interact with insurance or Employee Assistance Plan (EAP) benefits. Insurance plans do not cover career counseling, and rarely cover couples/marital/family therapy when the treatment goal is improving communication, resolving conflict, and enhancing relationships.

If your insurance policy covers individual treatment for a diagnosed mental health condition, or it covers therapy to improve the relationships of couples or family members, you can pay the full fee and request a “Superbill” type receipt for submission to your insurance company. This process can provide you with reimbursement of allowed fees paid for eligible services that you have obtained out-of-network.

As a courtesy to current and prospective clients who need to use insurance co-pays at time of service, Robert Castle is willing to confer with you about other counseling practices in the area which might accept your insurance or EAP benefits. He is also willing to assist you in weighing the pros and cons of using insurance, deciding which arrangement fits your personal goals, and finding a licensed counselor / therapist who can best meet your needs.

If you would like more information about fees and insurance benefits, feel free to send your questions to Robert Castle using the Contact form.
