where the amount you pay depends on your income.
Dr. De Luca is currently on various insurance panels. Many insurance companies provide coverage for mental health
services (a.k.a. behavioral health services). If you have private health insurance coverage (typically through an
employer or independently), be sure to check with your insurance company to see if out-patient mental health services
are covered. In addition, be sure to check with Dr. De Luca to insure that she is a provider with your insurance
company or what other options are available. If Dr. De Luca is unable to accommodate your particular insurance needs,
you will be provided with referrals to other licensed therapists who may be of consideration, and who accept your insurance.
If mental health services coverage is provided, be sure to ask your insurance company the following questions:
-How do I obtain my mental health services benefits?
-Is pre-authorization for mental health services prior to my first visit required?
-Do I need approval for mental health services from my Primary Care Physician (PCP)?
-How much does my plan cover for mental health services within a calendar year?
-How much will the insurance company cover for each session?
-What is the maximum amount that I will be reimbursed for mental health services within a calendar year?
-What out-of-pocket expenses am I responsible for (examples: deductible, co-pays, co-insurance percentages)?
-How many sessions does my plan cover within a calendar year?
-What is my Co-Pay amount for in-network providers?
-What are my costs for out-of-network providers?
-What benefit limitations apply?
-Is an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) available to assist with costs and licensed therapist referrals?
