Vann Counseling & Consulting does not contract with insurance companies and all clients are self-pay.
Superbills can be provided to individual & family counseling clients who want to attempt out-of-network insurance reimbursement in order to support their financial investment in therapy.
In order for your insurance to reimburse you, you have to meet the requirements for a mental health diagnosis which will become a part of your permanent health record. To see if your specific health plan offers out-of-network outpatient mental health benefits, call the member number on the back of your insurance card and ask.
Family Law services are not reimbursable by insurance.

Good Faith Estimate
Effective January 1, 2022 you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE) explaining how much your medical care will cost. Vann Counseling & Consulting has always provided transparency in our billing practices by displaying our fee schedule online and as a part of our onboarding process for new clients. Please know that the Good Faith Estimate does not change any agreements you have already made with us with regard to self pay. Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using their insurance an estimate of the bill for medical services.
- You have the right to receive a GFE for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your GFE, then you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your GFE (a copy will be in your Simple Practice client portal for you to review)
For questions or more information about the GFE, go to www.cms.gov/nosurprise. or call 1-800-985-3059
