Insurance

Thrive understands the importance of using insurance to cover medical-related issues and expenses, but Nick would like for you to consider few implications of using your medical insurance.

In order to use your medical insurance for counseling, your therapist must provide  you a mental disorder diagnosis.  That diagnosis becomes a part of your medical record that is filed through your insurance provider.  Having a mental diagnosis on your record can potentially carry some long-term implications and may hinder you from being able to obtain things such as life insurance, disability or even health insurance in the future.

As for Couples Counseling, insurance companies do not view relationship struggles as medical-related problems.  Thrive agrees with this policy; however, it does not take away the seriousness of relationship problems. This is why Nick currently does not accept insurance or provide reimbursement for individuals or couples.  Nick wants to help individuals and couples, not make things more complicated for them.

Some Professional Counselors, Social Workers and Psychologists do accept insurance for reimbursement purposes.  If Thrive is unable to provide you with services through the use of private pay, we are happy to assist you with referrals where your insurance may be accepted.  However, we want our clients to understand the implications involved with filling your insurance.

Though Thrive does not provide insurance reimbursements, families, couples and individuals are able to utilize their Health Savings Account (HSA card) as a form of payment for sessions.  If you still have questions or need assistance finding a provider that takes insurance feel free to reach out to us.

Payment

We accept cash, check, all major credit cards and HSA as forms of payment.

Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel a scheduled appointment, please contact Nick by phone, email or online contact at least 24-hours in advance of your scheduled session.  Otherwise, the client will be billed for 50% of the session fee.  This enables Thrive to maintain consistent billing practices for all clients.

Please contact me for any additional questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
