Locate your insurance policy/card. Call your insurance company and find out if your insurance covers mental health services. Not all insurance covers mental health, if your insurance does not then you or your guardian will be responsible for paying for services out of pocket. Those services and fees will be explained to you up front along with our 48 hour cancellation policy.
If you do have mental health insurance you will need to locate your coverage for OON (out of network) providers. We do not accept insurance for anything but dTMS (with rare exceptions). Call your insurance company to ensure that Brooklyn Minds will be covered as an out of network provider via . This is also a good time to find out what the reimbursements rates are for out of network providers. For example, many times insurance will only cover 30% of the cost. That means, if your therapist is $300/hr. then you will be paying $210 after your insurance company reimburses you. You will be responsible for paying the entire $300 upfront and filing the paperwork with your insurance company.
IMPORTANT!!!! Make sure to ask your insurance company if they require prior authorization as this could affect whether you get re-embured or not. Preauthorization can usually be handled by phone and you will receive an authorization number that you will use to file to receive reimbursement from your insurance company.
ASK your insurance company if there is any limit on how many visits, how long the sessions are allowed to be, or if there are any services you may want Brooklyn Minds to provide that MAY NOT be covered at all under insurance. Do no assume you will get reimbursed unless you verify it first.
