I do not bill your insurance. You pay me up front, and you then submit your claim to your insurance.
My services would only be covered by your insurance if your plan allows you to use out-of-network providers. To check with your insurance whether my services as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor are covered (and how much of the fee is covered), call their Customer Care (this phone number should be listed on your insurance card).
Is this tax-deductible?
Coaching fees may be tax-deductible, as expenses of continuing education undertaken to maintain and improve business and professional skills. Please consult your tax advisor.
