INSURANCE

Christian Therapy Services, LLC and Catherine DeLoach Lewis are considered out-of-network providers because we do not participate on any insurance panels and will not appear on your insurance provider list.  Because Cathy is a Licensed Professional Counselor and has a Master’s Degree in Psychology, many insurance companies with out-of-network benefits will reimburse a portion of her fee to clients who wish to file for reimbursement.

Some insurance companies require that the client meet a deductible prior to these out-of-network benefits reimbursing, so if you know you need to use insurance to cover the cost of counseling, please call your insurance company first before scheduling an appointment.

Filing insurance:  I will provide an Insurance Statement to clients who have out-of-network benefits and want to file for insurance reimbursement. Most insurance companies require that I release my diagnostic impressions to them and indicate that you have an “illness” before they will agree to reimburse all or part of your counseling fees.  I will inform you of your diagnosis and confirm your understanding of your diagnosis before you submit this statement to your insurance company.  Be aware that any diagnosis communicated to your insurance company will become part of your permanent record. If you decide to use insurance benefits to pay for counseling services, you will still need to pay the full fee for your counseling session at the time of your visit.

CHURCH PARTNERSHIPS

Several local churches have partnered with me in providing benevolence/scholarship funds to their parishioners who are seeking counseling services. They usually ask the parishioner to pay a portion of the counseling fee and the church agrees to pay the balance of the fee for a set number of sessions. I invoice the churches monthly for the portion they have agreed to pay.

If you are concerned about the cost of counseling, ask your church if they can offer assistance. If they have benevolence funds available to help you with counseling, please have them call me at 704-370-0334 to provide me with the following information:

  • how many sessions they have approved
  • what portion of the counseling fee they are paying
  • what amount you are responsible for paying.

OTHER INFORMATION

Payment method: Payment can be made with a personal check or exact cash at the time of the session.

Reduced fee: Because I keep my counseling fee below the market, reduced fee services and scholarships are not available.

Cancellation policy: If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours (business hours Monday-Friday) in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.  Additional information on this policy is provided on the Informed Consent Form which you will be asked to complete prior to our first counseling session.

Counseling schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday: First appointment is 9am and last appointment is 5:30pm.  Friday: First appointment is 9am and last appointment is 1pm.
