Detailed Insurance Information
Below is a list of insurances and programs we work with to increase access to mental health services. We have listed our in-network and out-of-network providers for each panel. All in-network providers and approved authorizations with a particular insurance use a contracted rate, specific to that panel. These rates are still subject to your deductible and copay.
As a courtesy to you, we will conduct a preliminary verification of coverage with your insurance plan. This is not a guarantee of coverage by insurance and clients are ultimately responsible for the fees incurred through services rendered, including when insurance denies a claim. Insurance policies can change often, quickly, and even without notice. We encourage clients to take initiative to stay informed and current about their benefits by contacting their insurance company directly and informing us ahead of time of any upcoming changes.
We have no influence over your insurance coverage.
Clinicians that will be paneled as in-network providers with Kaiser Permanente at Second Growth Counseling include: Tony Grace, Anne Horgan, Shelley Gillespie and Elizabeth Armstrong, Spencer Uemura, Yael Kievsky, and Kelly Grace. Shelley Gillespie is also able to accept Kaiser’s MediCARE.
We also anticipate that our Associates will be able to accept Kaiser Permanente insurance in early 2024. For now they are considered out of network: Shelby Clarke, Owen Wardrop, Andrea Benach, Day Hancock-Murphy, and Andrew Arehart.
PACIFICSOURCE HEALTH PLANS (Commercial, not OHP)
Clinicians that are currently paneled as in-network providers with PacificSource at Second Growth Counseling include: Tony Grace, Anne Horgan, Shelley Gillespie, Elizabeth Armstrong and Kelly Grace.
Clinicians that are currently paneled as in-network providers with Aetna at Second Growth Counseling include: Tony Grace, Anne Horgan, Shelley Gillespie, Elizabeth Armstrong, and Kelly Grace.
We are fortunate to be in a pilot program with MODA, recognizing Registered Associates as in-network providers. The following clinicians will be in-network beginning November 1, 2023: Shelby Clarke, Owen Wardrop, Andrea Benach, Day Hancock-Murphy, and Andrew Arehart.
OHP HEALTH SHARE: CAREOREGON
We partner with Oregon Health Plans that contract CareOregon for their behavioral/mental health needs.
All our clinicians are able to serve CareOregon members: Tony Grace, Anne Horgan, Kelly Grace, Shelley Gillespie, Shelby Clarke, Owen Wardrop and Elizabeth Armstrong. Andrea Benach, Day Hancock-Murphy, and Andrew Arehart.
MODERN HEALTH: EAP
An Employer-sponsored platform where an employee can receive a set number of sessions (usually 6-8 therapy appointments) that are fully paid for by their employer. Employees may choose to continue with sessions through informed consent to cover additional sessions under their own financial responsibility.
- Letter writing/form completion: done within clinical session(s) must be scheduled (only available to well-established clients)
- Case collaboration with care team providers: $50 per 15-min (connecting with prescribers, other providers, schools, case managers, etc.)
- Consultation: $50 per 15-min (advocacy, research, parental support, educational/informational, etc.)
- Legal involvement: $250 per hour with $1,000 deposit. (includes any activity associated with legal involvement including research, legal consultation, transportation, parking, waiting, testimony, etc.) Ethically, legal involvement may also result in terminating the counseling relationship as it changes the role of the therapist and therapeutic relationship.
Know your rights under the “No Surprises Act.”
Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, also known as the “No Surprises Act,” aims to increase price transparency and reduce the likelihood that clients receive a “surprise” medical bill by requiring that providers inform clients of an expected charge for a service before the service is provided. This is referred to as a “Good Faith Estimate” which gives uninsured and self-pay clients an estimated projection of costs for services when scheduling care or when the client requests an estimate. This was specifically designed and helpful for receiving care through emergency services and facilities when clients have less autonomy to choose their providers. At Second Growth Counseling, you have the opportunity to learn about providers, what insurances they are in-network with, and the costs of out-of-network care, all before you start therapy. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate or the dispute process, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call the Department of Health and Human Services: 1-800-985-3059.
