Quality Mental Health Care Can Be Affordable
A doctor has the right to accept insurance plans or not, so not all do. But if a patient has insurance, why not see a doctor that does accept their insurance?
This question seems simple enough, but when it comes to mental healthcare, many people choose doctors who do not accept insurance. Many factors can come into play when choosing a doctor, of course, but this is a choice that directly affects affordability.
To the point, if you can have the same quality of care with the doctor who accepts your insurance, then why not let that doctor give you the help you need? Think of it like buying a new car. You want the new car. One dealer wants $37,025, while another dealer down the street is asking $27,025 for the same model in the same color with the exact same features. Which would you choose? The choice is simple: Choose the same high-quality automobile but pay less for it.
Obviously, choosing a mental healthcare professional isn’t like buying a car but you still have a similar choice: If a doctor doesn’t accept health insurance, their services will cost you more, sometimes thousands of dollars more. Or you can choose a quality mental healthcare provider for less out-of-pocket expense. Imagine what else you could do with that extra money: Travel, pay off a credit card, or put a down payment on that car you’ve always wanted.
