Highmark BCBS, United Healthcare, West Virginia (PEIA)/UMR
Macy Gardipee is an LPC provider who provides diagnosis, counseling treatment and case management to clients in therapy. If you have United Healthcare, Highmark BCBS or West Virginia PEIA/UMR and would like to see if your insurance will help cover the cost of counseling, please contact your health insurance provider directly to confirm that Macy Gardipee, LPC with Recover & Rebuild Counseling, LLC is in or out-of-network with your health insurance. You can also contact Macy Gardipee about scheduling a free phone consultation to talk about starting counseling and have her verify your benefits with your health insurance before an appointment is scheduled.
You may or may not choose to file claims through your health insurance. Please note, that if you choose to file a claim for an out-of-network provider or in-network provider that most insurance companies require a mental health diagnosis that will become a part of your medical record. If you have insurance that I accept, but choose not to use it to pay for counseling sessions you will have to pay out-of-pocket for therapy sessions and may be asked to sign a “Self-Pay Agreement” by your counselor.
For clients who have health insurance that Macy Gardipee, LPC does not accept, you have the option of contacting your health insurance provider and asking them if they will cover mental health counseling for out-of-network providers. If your health insurance provider covers out-of-network mental health counseling services, then you may ask if you can submit claims to your health insurance provider on your behalf and be reimbursed for mental health counseling services. Macy Gardipee, LPC can provide clients who want to use their insurance with a super bill, invoice for sessions or mental health diagnosis so that clients who qualify for out-of-network coverage can use their health insurance and be reimbursed for sessions or apply those fees to their deductible. Again, clients who wish to use their health insurance for out-of-network services will be responsible for following up with their insurance provider and submitting claims to their insurance. Some health insurance companies will do this and some will not, but clients interested in counseling and using their insurance will need to ask their insurance company directly.
For questions about out-of-network provider services, feel free to contact your health insurance provider or Macy Gardipee, LPC today!
