At Bethesda Therapy, we’re here to help you navigate the complex world of insurance coverages and payments. Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, you may be pleasantly surprised to find that services provided by out-of-network facilities like ours could be either fully or partially covered. To ensure you have a clear understanding of your benefits, we suggest reaching out to your insurance provider directly to learn more about how your plan caters to psychotherapy services.

Here are a few guiding questions that could be helpful while discussing with your insurance provider:

  1. Does my health insurance plan offer Out of Network benefits for Outpatient behavioral health?
  2. Am I covered to see out-of-network providers?
  3. Is there a deductible associated with my plan, and if so, what is its amount?
  4. How much of my deductible has been met this year?
  5. Are there any copays or coinsurances that I should be aware of?
  6. Does my plan have a limit on the number of sessions I can have per calendar year? If yes, could you tell me the number of sessions allowed?
  7. Do I need to get approval from my primary care physician for these services to be covered?

When it comes to payment for our services, we’ve got you covered with various options. We gladly accept all major credit cards and FSA/HSA cards. Please note that full payment is due at the time of service.

Bethesda Therapy is happy to provide superbills to be submitted to your insurance for out of network reimbursement.

If you have a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA), you’ll be happy to know that we welcome payments from these sources as well.

Remember, we’re here to support you every step of the way. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or need further information.

Great question! Our decision to be a virtual-only practice stems from our commitment to provide flexible, accessible, and comfortable therapy services to our clients.

Firstly, going virtual allows us to eliminate geographical barriers. No matter where you live in Maryland, Washington D.C. or Virginia, as long as you have an internet connection, you can access our services. This is especially beneficial for those living in remote areas, those with limited mobility, or those with busy schedules.

Secondly, we understand that comfort plays a big role in therapy. Being in your own safe space might make you feel more at ease to open up and express yourself.

Lastly, our virtual model ensures continuity of care in various circumstances, including inclement weather, personal emergencies, or public health situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

Remember, while our sessions may be virtual, our commitment to providing you with compassionate and high-quality care is very real. Please reach out if you have any other questions or concerns!

At Bethesda Therapy, we understand that our clients have diverse schedules and commitments. To accommodate this, some of our clinicians offer flexible session times, including early morning, night, and weekend appointments. The availability of these sessions depends on the specific clinician’s schedule.

We recommend discussing your scheduling needs during your initial consultation. Our aim is to find a time that works best for you, ensuring that your therapy sessions are as convenient and stress-free as possible. At Bethesda Therapy, we are committed to making mental health care accessible and tailored to your lifestyle.

At Bethesda Therapy, our focus is on providing comprehensive mental health therapy services, and we do not prescribe medication. We understand, however, that medication can be an essential component of a holistic mental health treatment plan for many individuals. If you believe medication might be helpful for your situation, we recommend consulting with Potomac Psychiatry. They are an excellent psychiatry practice with a team of experienced professionals who can assess your needs and provide the appropriate psychiatric care.
