Despite my being an in-network provider for HealthPartners for several years at CenterLife Counseling, and even before, HealthPartners has denied my request for an in-network contract. I wrote them an appeal letter that also fell on deaf ears. According to HealthPartners, options are for clients to request that my services be offered in-network for them, use out-of-network benefits, submit to an HSA account for reimbursement. I am more than happy to work out a private pay option with you if none of these will work.
BCBS of MN was very cooperative in offering me an in-network contract. So, any past, current, or new clients that have Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance, I am officially in-network.
An exciting and scary time, this setting up a new business. I'm Dave Halper, formerly of CenterLife Counseling, and now embarking on this new adventure. Because this is considered a new business, I have to apply for contracts from the insurance companies, a process that they say will take 1 to 3 months! No guarantees that I will get a contract but my fingers are crossed! Private pay is an option and we can discuss the rate. Because I am a licensed provider, you can submit any fees to your HSA account for reimbursement. Thanks everyone for your patience during this transition.
