Kaiser (out of network)
Authorization must be given by Kaiser prior to starting therapy. Please note this does not ensure a guaranteed space as a new client at our agency. Clinician availability, goodness of fit, scope of our practice, amongst other factors, must be discussed first before a new client can be established. If a new client agreement is established, instructions will be given for how to ask for authorization prior to the first session.
Prior authorization must be obtained prior to starting services. Please note that there may be a copayment or coinsurance that is due the week of each appointment. It is recommended to learn the details of the deductible (if applicable) for your plan, as sometimes the deductible must be met prior to insurance covering psychotherapy sessions. In this case, the full amount of the reimbursement claim would be paid directly to this agency until the deductible is met. The amount of the reimbursement claim can be verified by Kaiser.
