Billing Policies and Insurance
Out of Network Provider
Pacific Behavioral Healthcare (“PBH”) is considered an “out of network provider” which means we are not contracted with any insurance companies. PBH does not bill insurance companies for outstanding balances.
Helping Our Clients Obtain Insurance Reimbursement
The PBH front office is happy to provide clients with a Superbill, which is an extended statement containing information required by insurance companies for reimbursement. Clients may use this Superbill statement to request reimbursement from their insurance company directly to them for sessions that they have attended at PBH.
It is not possible for PBH to guarantee if particular clients will receive reimbursement payments from their insurance company for services provided by PBH. If you are curious if your insurance company will provide reimbursement, we recommend that you contact your insurance company prior to obtaining services at PBH to determine what, if any, coverage will be provided.
Information Insurance Companies May Request
Sometimes insurance companies will want to know specific "CPT" and diagnosis codes will be used for services to be able to provide reimbursement information. While we cannot state in advance what all service codes will be used, or what diagnoses will be made, the information below will provide you with a sample of common codes we utilize at our clinic.
