What is a Superbill? What is Courtesy Billing?
A superbill is a document that provides a detailed breakdown of the services you received during your psychotherapy session. It includes information such as the date of the session, the type of service you received, the duration of the session, and the cost of the service. With a superbill, patients can submit the document to their insurance company for reimbursement, typically through their out-of-network benefits. The insurance company will review the superbill and reimburse the patient for a portion of the cost of the session, based on the terms of their policy.
Courtesy billing is a service provided by some psychotherapy practices to help patients utilize their insurance benefits. When a practice offers courtesy billing, they will submit a claim to the patient’s insurance company on behalf of the patient. This can help streamline the billing process and reduce the amount of paperwork patients need to submit. It’s important to note that the amount of reimbursement a patient receives through courtesy billing will depend on their insurance coverage and the terms of their policy. In some cases, patients may still be responsible for a portion of the cost of their psychotherapy sessions, even with courtesy billing.
