Because Sandy is an independent contractor working with Pathways Counseling Services, she is bound to Pathways' policy regarding insurance. Pathways Counseling Services does not accept insurance. Please read below to be well informed when making a decision about using insurance for counseling.
Taken from Pathways Counseling Services' Website:
We have found that many times either counseling services are dictated by the particular insurance company's plans (packages) which may restrict the provider (i.e. counselor) and client to a
limited number of sessions, a specific list of disorders (or problems) of which some are covered and some are not (depending on the plan) or certain counseling needs (e.g. couples counseling) are not
considered at all. There may also be many times that the provider has to "embellish" a client's symptoms to have a favorable diagnosis in order to provide counseling or to get approval for
further sessions. In other words, the provider may have to make you appear more severe on paper in order to engage or continue your counseling. We believe this creates an ethical dilemma
which we do not wish to enter. Also, what some companies may reimburse the provider is in many instances less than what the provider normally charges for counseling.
We encourage you to review your insurance policies carefully along with your privacy policies to know how your personal information is handled and what particular counseling services are covered and which ones are not. Your counseling (mental/behavioral health care) information or chart/paperwork may be lumped together with your medical treatment and handled/managed by your PCP (Primary Care Physician).
Riders (amendments) may also be placed on your future coverage by your new insurance company (if you change insurance companies) if you have a history of counseling which may limit, restrict or not allow for counseling services.
Please know fully your benefits and rights as well as the limitations and rules that govern your insurance company.
We prefer to focus on and tailor our counseling services with the client's best interest and needs at heart and not limiting the services due to the dictates or policies of a third party. We believe the client should be the one to determine what is best for his/her family care and not be possibly limited or scrutinized by a third party.
