You are advised to contact your health insurance provider prior to scheduling an appointment to inquire about your mental health benefits. These are some of the questions you can ask them:
1- Amount of your Annual Deductibles (amount set by your plan you are first required to pay out of pocket before you start receiving insurance benefits)
2- Your office Co-Payment (amount you are required to pay during every visit).
3- Number of counseling sessions they allow per year.
4- If a Prior Authorization is required.
5- If they cover for Out-of-Network ( if your insurance is not listed above)
6- If they cover Marriage Counseling ( if you are coming for marriage counseling)
