Frequently Asked Questions
Does your practice accept insurance?
The Family Center, like most mental health practices is a fee-for-service practice. This means that we provide each client with a Super Bill containing all necessary information to obtain direct reimbursement to the holder of the insurance. A Super Bill is provided at the time of payment at each visit. While insurance plans vary with regard to reimbursement fees, typical reimbursement for mental health services can range from 50% to 80%. It is always a good idea to contact your insurance carrier for specific information about your benefit plan.
