We accept self pay and Major Insurances such as United Health Care, Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield (out of network), Cigna, Mutual of Omaha EAP. Some people prefer to self pay as it gives them a higher degree of confidentiality; once insurance is billed the insurance company has the legal right to review your file and case notes, this is a lesser degree of privacy and it could effect people applying for jobs in certain industries and the military.
