Compassionate Counseling & Consulting is considered an In-Network provider for the following insurance companies:
Florida Health Care Plans (FHCP)
Effective 09/01/19- No longer accepting Florida blue PPO or HMO
We do provide courtesy direct billing on your behalf. Unmet deductibles and out–of-pocket fees must be paid at time of service. Out Of Network Benefits For all other payors including Florida Blue/BCBS: Compassionate Counseling & Consulting is considered an Out-of-Network provider. Our counseling services may be eligible for reimbursement through out-of-network benefits, medical spending, or health care savings accounts. Health insurance plans and benefits vary. If you are interested in using your health insurance to see one of our counselors, please call your insurance provider to inquire about reimbursement for out-of-network counseling services (see below for questions to ask your insurance company). Upon request, Compassionate Counseling & Consulting will provide you with a receipt at the end of each month, or each session, which you can then submit to your insurance company for possible out-of-network coverage/reimbursement.

Why Consider Paying Privately or “Out of Pocket”?
In order to have therapy services covered under insurance, a mental health diagnosis must be made. This information then becomes a part of your permanent health care record. This may lead to limitations such as denial for quality life insurance, specific occupations, or health insurance later on. Many clients choose not to involve insurance companies in their mental health care. Their counseling is not limited by the diagnosis, treatment plan or session limits that 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. Additionally, since a mental health diagnosis must be made to obtain reimbursement, the insurance company often will request a significant amount of information about you in order to be covered. The insurance company can review all of your records at their discretion. By paying privately or out of pocket, your records are exempt from insurance reporting. We are able to assure private pay clients the highest degree of privacy, flexibility, and control of their mental health record allowed by Florida state law. At Compassionate Counseling & Consulting, we work collaboratively with our clients to decide how often you should attend therapy, and you decide what you want to focus on. This allows you have the control, not the insurance company. Many insurance companies require a deductible to be met before they start paying for mental health coverage, so you may be paying out of pocket anyway.
