Private Pay/Cash Clients:
YMHS is a private practice. Fees are covered by payment in person at each appointment via cash, HSA cards, bank debit cards or all major credit cards, and most major insurances.
YMHS offers a sliding scale based off your annual household income, so please contact us for more information about that option.
*no one will be denied access to services due to inability to pay; and please note there is a discounted/sliding fee schedule available.
What We Offer:
We offer treatment that is tailored to your needs. We at YMHS also have a Client Portal where you can sign in and adjust your appointments, see your billing information, and much more. Evening/weekend appointments are also offered to those with busy work/school day lives.
Most importantly we offer quality, educated, understanding, and empathetic counseling so you know you are being treated with the utmost care and concern.
We also offer Play Therapy by Registered Play Therapist's.
Also within our building we have an onsite independent Psychiatrist for medication management needs.
Please have your card available when booking your appointment, and please bring it to the first session.
Filing Out-Of-Network Insurance:
Out-Of-Network insurance is accepted.We will provide you with a detailed invoice (called a "Superbill") at the end of each month upon request. It contains all the information that most insurance companies require.
If your insurance company requires that some other form be filled out, please have that form available for the practice to complete. Once you have your documentation, you can provide it to the insurance company.
Please contact your insurance provider to verify their coverage of Out-of-Network sessions and for their policies on applying your visits.
It is important to check with your insurance company BEFORE you schedule your appointment to determine if they will approve out of network benefits for the provider you wish to utilize as some of our providers are not able to be processed as out of network.
Downside to paying with Insurance:
When choosing to pay with insurance you will have counseling that is limited by the diagnosis, treatment plan or session limits that the health insurance companies dictate. Insurance companies often limit the number of sessions and even the type of therapy. Many insurance companies do not cover couples/relational or family therapy.
To have therapy services covered under insurance, a mental health diagnosis must be made. This then becomes a part of your permanent health care record. This may lead to limitations such as denial for quality life insurance or health insurance later on. Additionally, since a mental health diagnosis must be made to obtain reimbursement, the insurance company has to know a lot of information about you to be covered. The insurance company can review all of your records at their discretion.
By paying out of pocket, we can assure private pay clients of the highest degree of privacy, flexibility and control of their mental health record allowed by law.
In addition, many insurance companies require a deductible to be met before they start paying, so you may be paying out of pocket anyway.
*Please note that finding the right treatment and counselor is more important than trying to find someone with a lower fee. You want to be sure you are getting the best treatment possible and that your relationship with your counselor is one that fits best with your situation and goals.
