Some of the main reasons we do not go through insurance companies:
The insurance companies continually require information from the Psychiatrist in order to determine if they will continue to cover treatment. This can create long delays before treatment decisions are made and is often disruptive to treatment.
The insurance company can suddenly refuse to pay for any of your treatment, or for any treatment by the Psychiatrist.
If it does authorize our treatment, the insurance company is likely to limit the number of times we can meet.
The insurance plan can set any limit they feel appropriate at any time on the kinds of treatments you can receive without warning.
