Mental Health Benefits often have different set of rules than your other medical benefits:
Your co-pay, co-insurance, or deductible requirements might differ.
You might require a precertification (authorization) for mental health specialist.
You might require a refferal from your PCP.
There might be a limit on the number of allowed office visits.
There might be restrictions on length and type of your appointments.
There might be a limit on the $ amount allowed for mental health per year.
There could be some other restrictions, not mentioned above.
For these reason we strongly recommend that you call your insurance company before the first visit, and ask about your mental health benefits: office visit with psychiatrist.
You may also fax us the copy of your insurance card (front and back) and patients DOB, and we will check the benefits for you.
