Using Insurance for Richard Sypniewski

Many individuals choose not to go through insurance in order to maintain the highest degree of flexibility and privacy over their treatment. Insurance companies require a diagnosis and have access to sessions, which is not always ideal for every client.

Currently, Richard Sypniewski is the only practice member accepting insurance plans, Anthem Blue Cross and Tricare West.He is an out-of-network provider with most PPO plans. Payment is made at the time of the session. If you choose, you can seek reimbursement for a portion of your session. Please contact your insurance provider and ask about their “Out of Network” coverage for mental health services. If you are seeking reimbursement, I will provide you with a “superbill” which will state your diagnosis and other necessary information you need to submit to your insurance company.

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.


*Higher rate ranges include some variable increases due to the complexity-Intensive Counseling of an individual session-times and client(s) and/or multiple family members being serviced.

Insurance

Below are some questions you may want to consider asking regarding your health insurance.

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

What Is a In-Network Single-Case Agreement?

Due to my unique and specialized services, a single case agreement may be established. A single case agreement is a contract between an individual patient’s insurance company and treatment provider, which allows that patient to be treated as though he or she has in-network benefits. Insurance providers who offer single-case contracts will review potential agreements on a by-patient basis. It’s important to note that the agreement is specific to the current episode of care and does not apply to care outside of this treatment episode.
