WHAT INSURANCES DO YOU ACCEPT?
‚ÄčAt Wake Forest Counseling Associates we are currently able to offer in-network services for individuals enrolled with: 

Wake Forest Counseling   

Associates, PLLC

For those enrolled with other insurance companies, we would be considered out-of-network providers.  We also are able to offer sliding scale fees for those without insurance or not wanting to use their insurance.  Co-payments and non-covered charges are due at  the time the service is provided.  Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover are all acceptable forms of payment, in addition to cash and checks.

WHY WOULD I NOT WANT TO USE MY INSURANCE?

  • You don't have to use your insurance for therapy services.  In fact there are actually benefits to not using your insurance:
  • Insurances require that therapy services be "medically necessary".  What that means for you is that you will need to be given a diagnosis during your first session. 
  • Not going through your insurance company means that you will not have to be labeled with a diagnosis.
  • Greater privacy for you.  When a therapist submits a bill to the insurance company, many people have access to all the information provided on that bill: the processor, case managers, peer reviewers and customer services representatives, just to name a few. In the short-run, this may not affect you; however, if you ever decide to apply for life insurance or other similar types of policies, all medical records are typically requested.
  • There are no preset limits to the amount of sessions you use.
  • ‚ÄčInsurance Companies typically won't pay for Marriage Counseling/Couple's Therapy since it's not considered "medically necessary".


If you do choose not to use your insurance, just let us know and we will work with you any way we can.
