Couple Therapy & Insurance
One of the questions I often hear is “can I use my insurance for couple therapy?” The answer is “it depends.” If your plan has family therapy benefits then we may be able to file for insurance reimbursement, but there are several other criteria that must be met.
For couple therapy to be billed to your insurance:
- one member of the couple must be the identified patient
- that identified patient must have a mental health diagnosis that meets medical necessity
- the diagnosis must be the focus of the treatment plan
If a veteran and spouse are seen for conjoint therapy and the veteran is diagnosed with PTSD and the PTSD is affecting the marriage, then the insurance may be billed.
If one member of the couple is diagnosed with a substance use disorder and it is the focus of treatment then it is billable.
A couple seeking therapy to heal from infidelity does not meet medical necessity as defined by insurance companies and is not billable. Even if one person in the couple is diagnosed with Bipolar disorder, the infidelity is the focus of the treatment, not the Bipolar and it is still not billable.
Communication problems are not billable.
Premarital counseling is not billable.
Navigating the legal and ethical issues surrounding couple therapy and insurance is complex. If you have questions about your particular situation please contact the office.
