Fees, Insurance & Payments
Counseling is hard.
Paying for it shouldn't be.
Blended Care Service Delivery
Great Lakes Counseling Group delivers evidence-based, engaging therapy to our clients in a variety of ways:
Messaging - For some clients, text-based therapy effectively treats certain conditions for which clients seek help. For others, messaging is used from time to time to communicate with a counselor as a supplement to other delivery modes.
Assessment - Your counselor will conduct an assessment based on an intake interview, a screening questionnaire, and a video you'll create and upload before you start treatment.
Therapy Exercises - Treatment plans are created collaboratively between the counselor and the client. Once treatment goals are set, you'll have evidence-based exercises to practice in between sessions to build the healthiest version of you in your real life.
Advice - Full access to all of Terri's articles and advice about relationships and the challenges we face in our lives that affect them.
Live Sessions - Live chat, phone, and video sessions are available to clients who subscribe to those services. This is the more traditional way of therapeutic delivery.
Telehealth services have been around long enough for research to show that its equally as effective as in-person therapy. It's not appropriate for all clients and each person is screened for appropriateness for remote services. If the clinician determines the client needs a higher level of mental health care, they will refer the client to another provider.
What makes us different? Our blended care service delivery model supports the transfer of important skills from the therapy session to the client's real life in real time.
This is how we create lasting change for our clients.

How can I use my insurance to get reimbursed for the fee?
We are an "out-of-network" provider - what that means is that Great Lakes Counseling Group does not accept any insurance as payment for a session like other healthcare providers such as your physician. YOU MAY HAVE OUT-OF-NETWORK BENEFITS AND I CAN HELP YOU GET REIMBURSED.
1. Call your insurance company and find out what your out of network benefits are. Here is an Insurance Reimbursement Worksheet to help you ask the right questions and learn more about your coverage.
2. After you pay the fee for your session you'll receive a document called a "superbill." The superbill has all of the information your insurance company needs to process your out-of-network claim.
3. You can apply for reimbursement in 2 ways: Complete the out-of-network form from your insurance company and send it with a copy of the superbill to your carrier via snail mail OR download Reimbursify and track your reimbursement on your phone or tablet.
What is Reimbursify and how will it help me get reimbursed?
Can I use my HSA or Flexible Spending Account to cover the fee?
Mental health therapy is eligible for reimbursement with a flexible spending account (FSA), health savings account (HSA), and health reimbursement account (HRA).
Similar to the information the insurance company needs to reimburse a provider or a patient, your superbill will have all of the information your administrator will need to allow you to use your savings account.
In all types of therapy, an administrator may require a Letter of Medical Necessity. Therapy is not eligible for reimbursement with a dependent care flexible spending account (DFSA) or limited-purpose flexible spending account (LPFSA).
