New Beginning Counselling Services accepts payment from individual clients directly or we can invoice a third party, depending on clients coverage.
Private billing means that clients are directly responsible for payment at each session. The fee payment schedule is identified below.
Third Party billing
Third party direct billing means that we invoice directly on your behalf, such as to your Employee Assistance Program provider. Most insurance companies reimburse clients according to their contract agreements, rather than pay third parties.
In order to proceed with Third Party Billing the arrangements to do so is the responsibility of clients. Please check with your HR department, EAP or Insurance company for details on your coverage benefits and how they like to proceed.
The process for EAP coverage is arranged by your carrier with a formal referral to this office that includes the necessary details to allow this office to invoice them directly on your behalf. Once the referral is received, this office will contact you to make the first appointment. There are usually a number of set sessions allowed. This is typically a short-term model of support.
Please be advised that coverage depends on several factors such as your carrier and whether I am on the list of providers. Arrangements must be made at least 48 hours before the first scheduled appointment. This office does not initiate this process on your behalf, simply because that's not how third party billing works. So please contact your EAP directly.
