How Insurance is Handled

Self-Pay Process

The Kid Counselor is a private pay practice. Dr. Brenna values the privacy of her clients and has chosen not to participate in insurance panels. In doing this, Dr. Brenna is not required to provide diagnostic codes that remain on a child’s permanent mental health record.

Payment is required at the time of treatment. We accept cash, checks or credit card.

Out-of-Network Reimbursement

If your insurance plan includes out-of-network coverage, Dr. Brenna can provide documentation (using an ICD-10 code that indicates a diagnosis is being deferred) for reimbursement of session fees. Full payment is required at time of treatment, and then you will submit the documentation to your insurance company. Your insurance provider will reimburse you directly.

Please call your insurance company to confirm your out-of-network percentage of reimbursement before scheduling the free consultation with Dr. Brenna.

Medicaid (StayWell, Amerigroup/Simply Healthcare, Sunshine, etc.)

Because Dr. Brenna is a private-pay practice, she cannot legally treat children on any Medicaid plans.

Please call your Medicaid provider and request a list of approved mental health providers who are in your network.
