By choice, Eastside Grief and Loss Counseling in Issaquah is considered an out-of-network provider for most insurance companies. Some clients may be able to seek full or partial reimbursement from employers or insurance companies by submitting a receipt. I am happy to provide receipts or documentation stating terms of service so that you may be reimbursed. Please feel free to discuss this with me.
Before we begin working together it is important that you call your insurance company (if you plan on using out of network benefits) to see if you will be reimbursed for my services.
Here are some questions to ask your insurance company:
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
