Does Insurance Cover Sessions?

An important consideration for many people seeking therapy or counseling are the fees and insurance coverage. Fees will depend on the therapist you see, the length of the session and insurance coverage. We will try to help you understand what types of services are covered and some that may not be.

Does insurance cover marriage counseling and couples therapy?

Insurance typically does not cover marriage or couples therapy or premarital counseling.  However, if one of the participants has a medical diagnosis that requires the therapy (such as anxiety or depression), then insurance might cover treatment.
To find out if you are covered, you must speak directly with your insurance company.  Here are the questions you should ask:
1. Does my insurance cover the service you are looking for (i.e. marriage counseling, couples counseling, premarital counseling)
or if you have a medical diagnosis (
1. Does insurance “psychotherapy” or “family psychotherapy” with an out-of-network provider?
2.  If so, what is my deductible?
3.  After my deductible is met, what percentage of Maplewood Counseling’s fee will be reimbursed (what is the co-insurance)?
Please note that marriage, couples and premarital counseling is rarely, if ever covered.
How Does Maplewood Counseling Handle Insurance?

Although we require the fee to be paid at the time of service, we provide, as a courtesy, submitting each claim electronically and if you get a reimbursement your insurance company will send a check to the address on file with your insurance.How Does Maplewood Counseling handle payment for my sessions?

Everyone enters, securely, a credit card, HSA or FSA card which is charged at the end of each visit by the billing office.  If you are covered for the service through your out-of-network benefits, you may receive reimbursement from your insurance company.

Cost of Therapy Sessions

The cost of therapy of sessions depends on which counselor you see and the length of the session. Most traditional sessions are 45 minutes, but some couples request longer , double “intensive” sessions (90 minutes) because they need more time (** learn about our “intensive” sessions below).

Please call us for fee information.

Need a Longer Session?

** Longer Intensive Sessions Upon Request (When Available)

Couples may also request double, “Intensive” sessions, which are double (90 minute) sessions. These types of sessions are helpful when a couple is going through a crisis in the relationship (infidelity, on the brink of divorce) or have more complicated, long standing problems. Others are stuck in more escalated ways of communicating (name calling, angry verbal attacks, criticism, defensiveness, silence) and an inability to speak about or resolve anything productively.

Are Intensive Sessions right for us?

Intensive appointments are helpful for couples that:

  • are wondering if they can work thing out or have to separate divorce or break-up
  • need help expressing how you feel and get angry and not being understood and heard
  • are highly reactive to one another and are stuck
  • can’t seem to connect in ways you want without getting angry

If this sounds familiar, intensive sessions may be a good way to slow things down and understand what steps are needed, especially if you’ve been dealing with long standing problems.

Intensive appointments help couples who need to:

  • have more time to understand issues far more deeply than time allows in a single session
  • learn ways to deal with your present situation more effectively as you try to sort through the relationship problems
  • find out what will help you respond rather than react and improve communication
  • understand how to listen and validate one another and start the process of healing

Longer, intensive appointments can help you take a look at the most pressing and upsetting issues in the marriage or relationship. You and your partner can have more time to devote to finding better ways to stabilize the relationship and take some necessary (and sometimes long overdue) steps.

Please call us for intensive 90 minute fee information.
