There are both advantages and drawbacks of out-of-pocket payment and to using private insurance. Obviously, the biggest drawback of out-of-pocket pay is that it is an immediate out-of-pocket pay is that it is an immediate out-of-pocket expense. However, there are advantages of private pay that may make the expense worth considering.
Most insurance providers require a mental health diagnosis in order for therapy to be covered. When clients pay out-of-pocket, there is no requirement of a mental health diagnosis for treatment. Additionally, your session may be tax deductible.
Clients who pay out of pocket are guaranteed that the only people who know any of the details of therapy are themselves and their therapist. Aside from normal limits to confidentiality, therapy is completely confidential, without any third party being privy to information exchanged in session.
Having a choice is an important factor when it comes to finding someone you trust with your personal concerns. You may, for instance, prefer seeing someone who was personally recommended to you. When you use your insurance plan, your options are usually limited to therapists within your insurance provider’s network.
