Insurance & Fees
We can help guide you through the process.
Midwest Counseling can provide support as you navigate the details of insurance and fees. Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions:
Can Midwest Counseling help with my insurance claims?
Midwest Counseling is happy to submit claims directly to your insurance provider on your behalf, cutting down on paperwork and stress for you. Our intake director can assist you in verifying your insurance to know exactly what your benefits are and answer any other questions you have about your coverage.
To verify benefits, please contact Rose Metivier and include insurance ID number and date of birth. To authorize Midwest Counseling to submit insurance claims on your behalf, please complete and return our insurance release form.
What do I need to bring to my first appointment?
During your first appointment, a Midwest Counseling clinician will review registration paperwork, practice policies, your client rights, and organizational information with you. You can complete the registration form ahead of time.
If you have any questions, you can always fill out the form with your therapist before or during your first appointment.
Before your appointment, your therapist will give you information about how to find and enter our offices. If you arrive early, your clinician may be in session with someone else; please make yourself comfortable in the waiting area, and they will find you at the scheduled time.
Which insurance carriers do you accept?
All of our clinicians at Midwest Counseling are in-network with BCBS PPO, Blue Choice, and Aetna, and many of our clinicians are also in-network with United/Optum.
We accept out-of-network benefits for numerous insurers and can submit claims on your behalf.
Currently, dietitians and nutritional counseling services are not in-network with any insurance, though they can provide superbills for individuals to submit for out-of-network insurance benefits.
Do you offer sliding-scale fees?
If you are unable to use insurance for services, sliding-scale options may be available on a case-by-case basis. Sliding-scale fees are determined by client need and therapist openings. Please talk with your individual clinician to explore options that may be available to you.
