Counseling and Your Insurance Benefits

A lot of people who are interested in getting counseling are not sure how to pay for it. It is common now for counseling to be a part of your insurance benefits. You can call the customer service number on the back of your card to check your own benefits. You could ask "what are my outpatient mental health benefits in-network and out-of-network?"  This would let you know how much you may be responsible for out of pocket and how much your insurance would cover.  It would also let you know if you are wanting to use the benefits if you would need to use a provider who is “in-network” with your insurance or if you could also use your benefits with a therapist who is “out-of-network.”  At Compass Counseling we accept many types of insurance. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment at our Paducah office you can call 270-777-4490 or in Owensboro 270-215-4000.
