Employee Assistance Plans (EAP)

Flex Spending/Health Savings Plan

Although we are in-network with the above plans, you will be responsible for any copay's or deductibles that are required of your individual health plan. 

Out of network benefits

If your plan is not listed, Personal Best Therapy would be considered an out of network provider. Depending on your insurance plan you may be able to use “out of network” benefits to be reimbursed for part of your mental health treatment. If we are not “in network” with your insurance plan we can give you a receipt (or “superbill”) to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Call the customer service number on the back of your card to find out if you have out of network mental health outpatient benefits and what exactly they reimburse.
