INSURANCE AND FEES
Yahara Healing and Psychotherapy chooses not to work with insurance panels, though we are happy to provide superbills for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement of therapy services if your plan offers out-of-network benefits.
Paying directly for your psychotherapy ensures that your health information stays private as insurance companies require that the details of your sessions become part of your health record. This information is used by insurance companies to determine the duration, frequency, and method of treatment and they often prescribe only a certain number of sessions based on a diagnosis. Insurance companies require your therapist to diagnose you with an illness in order for you to access your coverage-- even when a diagnosis is not medically necessary-- and they require that your symptoms stay within the bounds of that illness to maintain coverage.
We recognize that healing is a very personal process and we want you to be in control of your treatment. We also recognize that insurance requirements and the medical model of healthcare can be direct sources of stigmatization and trauma. Paying directly for your mental healthcare means that your healing does not have to be medicalized and we can work together to create an individualized plan for your care. We will only assign diagnoses when clinically necessary (i.e. when helping you navigate gender-affirming care in the healthcare system). We are able to offer judgement-free therapy for any person seeking emotional healing and support at any stage in life, for whatever reasons are meaningful to you.
