Psychological services may be covered in part or in full by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

Is pre-authorization required by my primary care physician? Do I have mental health benefits, if so what kind of sessions are covered? Do I have a copay and a coinsurance fee? What is my deductible and has it been met? What is the coverage difference between and in network or out of network provider?

Your insurance may pay a part of the cost; however, your copay and coinsurance becomes your fee. In some instances, insurance companies require pre-approval for psychological services. Please call Prestige Medical Billing at (360) 805-0323 if you have questions about insurance coverage, fees, or payment.
