How do I use my insurance?

  1. Does my plan cover counseling for what I need help with?
    • Insurance will only pay for individual mental health counseling. It will not pay for relationship counseling
  2. Do I need a referral to use my insurance?
    • Health Maintenance Organization Plans (HMO): You will typically need to get a referral from your assigned primary care physician BEFORE attending counseling if you want to use your insurance.
    • Preferred Provider Organization Plans (PPO): No referral is typically necessary to use your insurance.
    • Exclusive Provider Organization Plans (EPO): No referral is typically necessary to use your insurance.
  3. What does Swinton & Associates Counseling need from me BEFORE I schedule an appointment?
    • Provide a picture or scan of the front and back of your insurance card. Email this to our billing manager at email hidden; JavaScript is required so she can confirm if you need any pre-authorizations or if there are other requirements before you are seen by a counselor. She will respond within 1 business day.
  4. What do I need to do AFTER I schedule an appointment?
  5. What will it cost me at my appointment?
    • Copay Plans: You will be responsible to pay your copay at the time of service
    • Non-Copay Plans: You will be responsible to pay $60 at the time of service. The difference will either be charged or credited to you once your insurance company has processed the insurance claim.

Out-of-Network Coverage

For or  individual mental health treatment, we can provide you with detailed superbills at the time of service for you to submit to your insurance company directly to seek out-of-network reimbursement (contact your insurance company to inquire if you have out-of-network coverage). You pay at the time of service and then submit the form we provide to your insurance company to seek reimbursement directly. This is available with all of our counselors. Contact us for more information.

Contact your insurance company for details of your coverage. We cannot guarantee coverage.
