Do Mental Health Counselors Accept Insurance? Answers From a Rochester Therapist, Rochester, New York

For many people considering therapy, the cost is an important concern, and whether a therapist accepts insurance is a major factor in deciding where to ultimately go. White Spruce Counseling in Rochester, New York, understands this dilemma, and they accept insurance from several different carriers to best meet the needs of their clientele, providing mental health counseling and insurance.

If a therapist is in private practice, it is up to the individual clinician to decide if they want to accept insurance. Most mental health counseling centers, hospitals, and clinics take insurance, but it is always wise to double-check before you make your first appointment. White Spruce Counseling accepts a variety of insurances, including:

mental health counseling

  • MVP
  • Excellus
  • Fidelis
  • Magellan
  • Monroe Plan
  • Blue Choice Option
  • Blue Cross, Blue Shield
  • United Healthcare

When mental health counseling professionals do not accept insurance, it's usually because they are trying to avoid the intricate paperwork and red tape involved in filing insurance claims. However, most clinicians will give you a receipt if you wish to file on your own with your insurance company, so you can seek reimbursement for services. However, be aware because your insurance company may not reimburse you for seeing someone considered out of their network of recognized providers.

White Spruce Counseling knows many people depend on health insurance for access to quality therapists. They are here to make sure you have all the resources at your disposal to get the exceptional mental health counseling services you deserve. To make an appointment, call them today at (585) 424-2436, or visit their website.
