I am currently not on any health insurance panels so I cannot bill the insurance company directly, I can however provide you with a receipt that you can submit to your PPO insurance company for reimbursement. You would pay me at the time of service.

Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan, it is up to you to verify what your PPO or employee benefit program will reimburse to you for a session(s) with Laguna Beach Counseling. The following are some suggested questions to ask your health insurance company / employee benefit program:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is my insurance deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

Reduced Fee
