Insurance and Co-Pays
Soul Care Counseling and Consultation, PLLC has an agreement with certain insurance companies. If clients are in-network, they will be required to pay for co-pays based on the specific insurance plan. Clients that have not met their deductible will be charged for the full amount of the specific insurance contracted rate. The therapist will bill insurance for the invoice amount so the insurance company can apply to the deductible. Clients may make co-payments on their Client Portal with any major credit card. Payment must be made prior to or at the time of the therapy session for the client to be seen.
Insurance companies require a mental health diagnosis before they will reimburse for sessions. Diagnosis will be provided to the client's insurance provider. This diagnosis will become a permanent part of the client's insurance record.

HSA (Health Savings Accounts)
Clients may make payments using the HSA debit (Visa, Mastercard) as immediate payment on their Client Portal, or in some plans, a client can download invoices to submit to your HSA plan for reimbursement. Check with your particular HSA plan to determine their particular policies and procedures for reimbursement.
Self-Pay
Self-pay clients pay the self-pay rates and choose not to involve their insurance carrier. This allows the client to have more personal control over how their information is shared with third parties. Insurance carriers have the right to view and audit insurance claims.
