Rebecca is not on any Insurance panels and many insurance companies do not cover services provided by someone who is not yet licensed. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health benefits?

  • How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network provider?

  • Does my plan cover services for a provider who is unlicensed and under supervision?

  • If so, how do I submit a Superbill?
