Insurance for Mental Health
While The Vine Wellness Group does not accept insurance, if you work with a fully licensed therapist we can provide you with a receipt to turn in to your insurance carrier for reimbursement as an out-of-network provider. Medicare Part B helps cover mental health services you generally get outside of a hospital, including visits with a clinical psychologist or clinical social worker. Health insurance plans and benefits vary, so please consult your insurance provider about reimbursement for your counseling services.
*Please review the “Reasons to Pay Privately” section below. Unfortunately insurance companies will not recognize and reimburse for services provided by LPC-Interns. However, if you have a FSA (flexible spending account) or health savings account, any counselor you receive services from at The Vine Wellness Group, can be paid for with these accounts as they are paid to The Vine Wellness Group and not individual counselors.

It is understandable that appointments need to be canceled and rescheduled on occasion. We ask that you give at least 24 hours advance notice to your therapist when canceling or changing your appointment time. If cancellations or changes are made with less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged the full regular visit fee. Last minute notice, or no notice, prevents the practice from making your appointment slot available to other individuals. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Documentation and Reports
Requests for the creation of reports, assessments, treatment summaries, letters, or other materials are billed at a rate of $95+ per hour that is spent creating, writing, and delivering the documentation. In some cases, we are not able to honor every request for documentation or reports.
It is not the mission of The Vine Wellness Group to speak on behalf of our clients in current or potential court proceedings. Though if subpoenaed there is a $500 retainer fee and $150/hour for time spent preparing for court and or time in court, along with fees for copies. See Counseling Agreement for details.
Reasons to Pay Privately
Private paying clients choose not to involve insurance companies in their mental health care. Their counseling is not limited by a diagnosis, treatment plan or session limits that health insurance companies mandate. Often, insurance companies limit the number of sessions and even the type of therapy they will cover.
In order to obtain reimbursement from your insurance company, a mental health diagnosis must be made. This becomes a part of your permanent health care record and the insurance company can review all of your records at their discretion.
By paying privately or out of pocket, we can assure private pay clients the highest degree of privacy, flexibility and control of their mental health and records that is allowed by Texas state law. We will work collaboratively to decide how often you would like to attend therapy and you decide what you want to focus on. You have the control over your mental health care.
