What to Expect

Getting Started

Our relationship will start with a free 20-minute consultation to better understand your goals and how we can help. We’ll also cover any questions you may have and based on your needs, you will be matched with one of our fully licensed therapists.

Next, you will receive electronically fillable and signable intake and consent forms to fill out prior to your first appointment- that means no printing, no scanning, no emailing required- just fill, e-sign and submit!

Last but not least, you are scheduled to meet (online only during COVID-19 pandemic) with your therapist on the agreed-upon date and time.

Do you take insurance?

We are out of network providers and do not take any insurance, however, depending on your current health insurance benefits plan, it is possible for your services to be covered in full or in part.  Every month, we provide you with an insurance-appropriate “superbill” that can be submitted for reimbursement.

We can help you to find out if you have out of network benefits with your insurance company. If you prefer to contact your insurance company on your own, we recommend that you verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services by asking the following five questions:

  1. Do I have out of network coverage?
  2. Does my out of network health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
  3. What dollar amount or percentage of each psychotherapy session is reimbursed or covered?
    • CPT Code 90791 for initial/first intake appointment
    • CPT Code 90834 for ongoing weekly appointments
    • CPT Code 90880 for medical hypnotherapy (if applicable to your treatment)
  4. How many outpatient mental health or psychotherapy sessions per calendar year that are covered in my plan?
  5. Do I need a pre-approval/ pre-authorization or referral from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

Can I get help with insurance reimbursements?

We have heard very good feedback from our colleagues about a company called Reimbursify, which for a small fee, will file your insurance claim forms and keep track of your reimbursements, all easily done through their app. According to their site, you can upload your claim form in “under a minute” and they take care of the rest for you.

Please note that Cohesive Therapy NYC has not directly worked with Reimbursify and is not affiliated or promoting their services in any way. The information is provided for educational purposes only.
