Some things to consider regarding the true costs of using insurance for therapy...
Therapy is a life investment. Many people are of the mindset that they cannot afford therapy. Much of the time, those same people are investing in immediate gratification actions such as making impulse purchases that are later discarded with little positive consequences.
There is nothing more fulfilling than insight, knowledge, and healthy changes.
You will have a pre-existing condition on your insurance record.
In order to bill your insurance company, a therapist needs to diagnose you with a mental illness. This means that your insurance record will forever contain that information.
You may be thinking, “who cares? Everything is a pre-existing condition now.”
Mental health diagnoses can be treated differently. Many people become uninsurable due to a diagnosis they received after psychological testing. I personally have patients who’ve been devastated by that.
You lose control over the confidentiality of your information.
A mental health diagnosis goes on your permanent insurance record. This record can be accessed by any insurance company or government agency during background checks.
If you need security clearance for work, want to join the military, are applying for jobs that require a criminal background check, or are involved in a Workman’s Comp case, all of your mental health information can be accessed.
Finally, if you’re ever sued, the opposing party can subpoena your medical and mental health records to build a case against you. This can quickly become a disaster in divorce cases.
You’re less likely to be committed to the process.
Paying $100-$120 for a therapy session, sometimes weekly for months or years, can make you nauseous. However, there’s a significant amount of research showing that people value what they pay for. The more you pay, the more invested you are in making sure you get something out of it.
Here’s a simple example: If you’re about to pay $150 for a meal, you’re more likely to research the restaurant, get dressed up, ask the server questions, and savor each bite. How often do you do this when you pay $15 for a meal?
In therapy, we see the same thing all of the time. In general, people who pay out of pocket tend to be more invested in the process, are more likely to complete challenges, and are more likely to reach their clinical goals.
It’s not personal. It’s basic human behavior.
Are there exceptions? You bet. Based on what I’ve seen, it’s when people have to save and sacrifice to pay a high weekly co-pay.
Again, real skin in the game equals progress.
Yes, there are exceptions.
If your finances are limited and using insurance is the only way you can get the therapy you need, then please do it.
If your co-pay is too high, please contact community mental health centers or university training clinics that offer discounted therapy.
Getting treatment is always the priority.
