**When you use your insurance, a psychiatric diagnosis must be assigned and transmitted to your insurance company, detailed clinical information often must be provided by your therapist, and in some cases total access to patient files often must be provided to insurance company employees. Often, insurance companies attempt to influence the methods or course of treatment so as to save money; this means treatment decisions will not be made by the therapist and client alone. Also, psychiatric diagnoses may affect your ability to obtain future health or life insurance and rates for that insurance. For more information please contact Anne Ethier, LPC, Counseling Services, Athens, Ga.
Insurance policies are a contractual agreement between you, the subscriber, and your insurance company. If you choose to use your insurance coverage, your coverage amounts, co-pays, deductibles, and your counselor’s eligibility for reimbursement from your insurance company will all need to be verified by you prior to services being rendered, or full session fees will be charged until authorization and benefits are confirmed .Anne Ethier is happy to assist you as needed and will bill charges on your behalf. However, understand that you will ultimately be responsible for payment of coinsurance and deductibles as well as fees for any non-covered services.
