Reasons We Don't Take Insurance:
We recognize that many individuals like to use insurance to cover the cost for counseling. There are a few different reasons Wellspace Counseling is not doing so at this time:
REASON #1: You Have to Be Diagnosed
For insurance companies to cover the cost of therapy, a person has to receive a diagnosis, even if the diagnosis does not match what you are experiencing or what you want to work on. For example, if a couple wants to come in for counseling, one person has to receive a diagnosis in order for an insurance company to cover the cost. And we don't think you should have a mental health diagnosis on your permanent medical record in order to receive help.
REASON #2: Insurance Companies Have Their Say in Treatment
Insurance companies get to influence the type of treatment people receive, the frequency of treatment, and the number of sessions a person is able to attend. Insurance takes some of the customization or flexibility out of what a person needs from mental health counseling.
