Insurance Guidelines

RNLF Counseling Services accepts most private health insurance plans including a large number of insurance carriers in the Bayou Health Network.  Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Dealing with insurance plans can be challenging, especially when you are already stressed and worried about mental health issues you or a loved one are experiencing. 


The first thing to find out is what mental health benefits your insurance policy offers. Review your insurance policy so that you are clear about whether your policy includes coverage for mental health services, types of services that are covered and the amount paid for these services, and any steps you must take to have treatment covered. The following are some questions you will want to ask your insurance company, if possible, before starting treatment:

  •  Do I need a referral from my primary care physician to a mental health professional?

  •  Do I need any pre-approval from the insurance company before I see a mental health professional?

  • Do I need to see a mental health professional who is on a list provided by my insurance company (in a "network") or am I free to choose any qualified professional?

  • Does the amount paid by my insurance company depend on whether I see a professional who is "in their network or preferred provider list" or "outside the network"? If so, what is the difference in the amount paid or percent reimbursement for "in network" vs. "out of network" providers?

  • Are there dollar limits, visit limits or other coverage limits for my mental health benefits? Is there a difference in what is paid for outpatient vs. inpatient treatment? If so, what are my benefits for each of these?
  • Is there a specific list of diagnoses for which services are covered? If so, is my diagnosis one of those covered by my policy?
  • What prescription benefit does my policy offer? What are the co-pays for medications? Are there different levels of prescription coverage depending on the specific medication? Do co-payments vary depending on whether the medication is generic or name brand?
