YES! Under my PsyPACT license, I'm able to see clients in the following states: Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Nevada, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Utah In 2021, I will also be able to see clients from Virginia and North Carolina.

The standard session fee is $150 for a 55 minute session. Not everyone is a good fit for telebehavioral health services. As such, the fee for the initial intake session ($150, 75 minutes in length) is waived for clients who complete the intake process and it is determined that 9-1-1 Recovers is not well-suited to the client’s needs.
I am an in-network provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO in IL. I contact BCBS on your behalf prior to the intake session to determine your co-pay (which ranges from $0 to $30 per session) and whether you need to pre-approval for services (which is not typically needed).
You may also seek reimbursement from your insurance provider. Many insurance companies reimburse up to a certain percentage for out-of-network services. For instance, BCBS of Illinois HMO reimburses at the rate of 50% for out-of-network telebehavioral health services. I have had clients use this option. To determine your level of coverage for out-of-network behavioral health services, including services with an out-of-state provider, call your insurance provider. If you have questions about other insurance carriers, please contact me.
You are allowed to use an HSA to cover the services of a psychologist. To use your HSA, you typically need to receive authorization from a physician indicating that you need a psychologist to treat a specific condition. I am happy to work with your physician to provide a diagnosis code that is appropriate if you sign a release of information. You should keep the authorization from your physician to have available when you file taxes.
Unfortunately, I do not work with any specific EAPS.
