NRC offers a sliding scale fee in place of directly accepting insurance. As a courtesy, NRC is willing to provide you a receipt so you can submit it to your insurance company and be reimbursed. If you are relying on insurance to pay for counseling, we recommend you call your insurance company to learn how much your benefits will pay towards the services of a professional counselor.
Benefits of Self-Pay
Clients who pay directly for their counseling needs gain the following benefits:
- You gain confidentiality and privacy. If you use insurance, your insurance company has the right to review your clinical records. This creates a paper trail.
- You get to choose the right counselor for your personal concerns.
- You do not need to worry about whether further sessions will be approved (you are in charge, not the insurance company).
- You will likely feel more responsible and invested in the counseling process and might even see results quicker due to increased motivation.
