Payment and Insurance
In addition to self-pay, we accept Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), Aetna, Optum, and United Healthcare PPO plans for residents of Arizona and Illinois.
Most other insurance plans include benefits for mental health services by a psychologist. Some of your treatment may be insurance reimbursable depending on your insurance plan’s coverage. We can provide you with a Super Bill that contains the proper codes. This bill can be submitted to your insurance company and/or healthcare spending account for review and possible reimbursement.
If you have questions about what your insurance will cover, we can help you determine this. Health Savings Accounts and Flexible Spending Accounts can be used to cover services as well. Payment can be made as cash, check, or credit card and is due at the time of service.
If using your health insurance, please contact your insurance company and ask the following questions:
- What is the coverage for mental health services, including counseling?
- What is my annual deductible and how much has been met?
- Do I have a limit on the number of sessions that I can receive?
- How much coverage do I receive per therapy session when using an out-of-network provider?
- How do I seek reimbursement for services?
- Do I need approval from my primary care physician?
- What will my co-pay be per session (for accepted plans)?
- Does my insurance cover online counseling/teletherapy?
What Are The Benefits of Self-Pay?
Some individuals elect to pay out-of-pocket and avoid using their insurance. If you are concerned about your employer or insurance company learning about a mental health diagnosis, then you may want to consider self-pay. As with any health-related therapy, insurance companies rely on diagnosis and procedural codes to reimburse healthcare providers. This applies to mental health treatment as well. As such, self-pay allows you to keep your mental health diagnosis and, in some cases, therapy notes private.
More insurance companies are limiting services in the number of sessions and time available. Additionally, with high deductible plans, you may have to pay for sessions to meet your deductible. In this case, you have the freedom to choose a provider. Lastly, Dr. Mazzei accepts only certain insurance companies and self-pay so that she can provide high-quality services and direct resources to advancing therapies while minimizing administrative costs.
As part of the intake process, a good faith estimate will be provided to you.
