Fee & Insurance

Fee & Insurance


Please note, clients must call their insurance company to verify benefits for Outpatient Therapy (in-network or out-of-network benefits if Wake Counseling provider is not in-network with your insurance plan). You can also check each clinician’s profile to see which insurances are commonly accepted, however, it is strongly encouraged to call your insurance to confirm benefits to be fully aware of deductible, copay or coinsurance per session.

Insurance Benefits

Unsure if your insurance covers counseling, ask your health insurance these questions to get a summary of your benefits:

  • Do I have mental health/in-office counseling insurance benefits?
  • Is my selected provider (with Wake Counseling & Mediation) in-network or out-of-network with the insurance?
  • How much will be the copayment or coinsurance per session?
  • Do I have to meet my deductible before insurance covers the cost?
  • Do I have out-of-network insurance benefits?
  • Do I need prior approval from insurance or primary care physician for counseling in-office visits?


If our practice is out-of-network with your insurance, you can still see our provider by paying at the time of the service. The provider will provide a Super Bill or an Invoice for you to submit to their insurance for reimbursement. Client is responsible for verifying out-of-network benefits with their insurance plan so you’re making an informed decision.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 800-985-3059.
Check each clinician’s profile to see which insurances are accepted.
