… the following forms are used for clients seeking to use insurance coverage. Use the Flowchart or call your insurance carrier to determine coverage. If coverage is available, fill out the Insurance Authorization Form and include a photocopy of your insurance card (front and back), and bring them to your initial session. It is strongly recommended that new clients contact our Central Office (704-375-5354) to confirm insurance availability, deductible, and co-pay prior to your first session. If your therapist is not in your insurance panel and you still wish to file insurance, we will provide a super-bill that you can send to your insurance company for reimbursement. However, you will be responsible for the full fee at time of service. NOTE: For insurance purposes, a DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) diagnosis is given and becomes part of your permanent medical record.
