  • Can you be an Out-of-Network provider/provide a superbill?
    Many clients have been able to use SCC therapists as Out-of-Network providers. Ultimately this is up to your Insurance Company. We are happy to give you a "superbill" to apply for out-of-network benefits. Please contact your insurance company directly and ask them the following questions: ​ “I’m hoping to meet with a therapist who is outside of my insurance network, and I will be paying them directly, $x per session. What are my out-of-network benefits? Specifically, how much of the $x will I be reimbursed through my plan?” ​ “The therapist will give me a Superbill (receipt) for my appointments; do you have a specific form I need to complete in addition to the Superbill in order to get reimbursed? Where do I send this form(s)?” ​ “How many days can I expect my reimbursement to take?” ​ “Will I be receiving a check or will the money be deposited into my bank account?” You may additional information here: https://www.choosingtherapy.com/superbill/
