Reason #1 for Private Pay Therapy: The Experience
When we consider insurance companies, they are not focused on the client experience. Unfortunately, when it comes to insurance-based therapy, companies are focused on getting you in and out in a certain amount of sessions. Additionally, people who are insurance-based may have less training as they are earlier in their careers. While you can still get quality support, the specializations are usually limited.
As brown and black therapists we want to provide you with the best therapy support possible. We know that people of color are historically marginalized and may not trust generalized care. Therefore, we value your experience and want to give you the necessary time you need to process whatever brings you to therapy. By offering private pay therapy in Brooklyn, NY we are able to reduce going through the middleman in order to gain the information we need to provide you with the best care.
Reason #2 for Private Pay Therapy: No Diagnosis Required and More Control
When it comes to insurance-based therapy, you are required to have a diagnosis within a certain amount of sessions. This may not work for your benefit. Although we have changed some ways we provide diagnosis due to the Good Faith Estimate, we can be more flexible with what we offer as a diagnosis. This gives you more control of your mental health needs. We can offer specialized treatment and walk you through understanding what a diagnosis can mean for you. Additionally, you have control over the number of sessions you have and more access to treatment modalities. This includes specialized support like EMDR therapy for anxiety, depression, and trauma.
Reason #3 for Private Pay Therapy: Confidentiality and Protection
Since insurance companies require EHR or electronic health records, this means that a third party has access to your records and diagnosis. Essentially, this increases the likelihood of HIPPA records being violated. Additionally, another benefit is you cannot be denied service due to private pay because you do not want to have a diagnosis and the barriers to service are significantly reduced.
