We accept only traditional Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Medicare. Even though we are out of network with most insurers, as an out-of-network provider, we have partnered with Mentaya to help our clients save money on therapy. Use the Mentaya calculator to check your benefits coverage. If you have questions about how to use this tool, please contact us.
Therapy without insurance benefits your mental health. At Edward Jenny & Associates, we no longer take insurance for online therapy, apart from Highmark BC/BS and Medicare for several reasons.
First, participating on insurance panels involves accepting insurance company control over our treatment decisions. We believe that to best meet your needs we need to have maximum flexibility in our evidence-based treatment approaches. In short, insurance participation ties our hands in providing you the best possible care. Offering private pay insurance options allows us to give you the best support for your mental health.
Second, there are significant privacy concerns with participation on insurance panels. In order to bill insurance, we have to certify that the service is “medically necessary” and we have to provide information about you including a diagnosis. This information follows you and can later affect access to competitive life insurance rates, among other things. Offering therapy without insurance gives you more choice and freedom in the labels and diagnoses you may receive in online therapy in Pennsylvania!
Finally, much of what really makes our services stand out, our collaborative assessments, do not work with the medical procedure codes that bill insurance. What we offer is cutting edge and not well understood by commercial insurance. That is why providing therapy without insurance and collaborative assessment options offer more support for you!
