Counseling services are typically covered in full or in part (co-pay) by health insurance or by your employee benefit's plan (EAP). Your counseling will be billed as individual counseling. If your partner participates they will be seen as a collaborative participant. If you ask whether your insurance policy covers marriage or family therapy you will usually be told no. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
- Most importantly, "What is my annual deductible and has it been met?
- "Do sessions need pre-authorization and or a doctor's referral?" If so, please ask for a pre-authorization number by calling the customer service number on the back of your insurance card.

Employee Assistance Programs (EAP)
Many employers provide short term counseling as a benefit at no cost to their employees. Typically, three to six sessions are provided by a contracted licensed counselor and paid for in full by their employer. Please contact your human resources or employee benefits department and inquire regarding your EAP benefits coverage. If I am not currently enrolled as a provider in your EAP network, there is usually a rather simple process to secure in-network status.
