Insurance & Fees

Insurance Coverage:

Underwood Counseling & Consultation, PLLC accepts private pay; BCBS PPO plans; most BCBS HMO plans; and Anthem insurance. If using insurance, your session rate is contingent upon your specific insurance benefits and the contract that Underwood Counseling & Consultation, PLLC has with BCBS. Our billing and claims assistant will verify your coverage and email you with your copay/coinsurance cost. In order to avoid issues with filing in-network claims with BCBS….

1. YOU MUST INFORM US IF YOU HAVE A SECONDARY INSURANCE PLAN THAT IS NOT BCBS.
If BCBS denies your claim due to coverage with a secondary insurance plan you will be required to cover the full session fee.

2. YOU MUST INFORM US IF YOUR BCBS INSURANCE TERMINATES OR CHANGES.
If you attend a session during a period of time following termination or change in BCBS coverage and your claim is denied you are responsible for the full session fee.

We are out-of-network with other insurance companies. If you would like to file an out-of-network claim, Underwood Counseling & Consultation, PLLC will provide you with the necessary documentation to do so.

Fees:

1. In-network with BCBS PPO, BCBS HMO, and Anthem: Your rate is dependent upon your insurance coverage and benefits. We will verify your coverage and inform you of your copay/coinsurance.

2. Out-of-Network: Upon your request, we will provide you with the necessary medical spending statement to file an out-of-network claim for possible reimbursement of your fee. Advanced Licensed Therapists are $160 per session; Associate Licensed Therapists are $100 per session.
