7. Dr. Vigo is an out of network provider for me. What does that mean?
Answer: This means that Dr. Vigo is not contracted with your insurance. You can still be seen, but will need to pay out of pocket. You will be a given a superbill which you can file with your insurance independently.
8. What is a superbill and what do I do with it?
Answer: A superbill is a detailed receipt of services rendered and provides the information an insurance company needs to create a healthcare claim. You can submit the superbill to your insurance provider in order to seek partial reimbursement for services rendered. If you plan to use your insurance benefits, it is in your best interest to check with your insurance provider prior to your first appointment in order to understand the full details of your out-of-network mental health benefits. Insurance plans vary widely and you may want to ask your insurance carrier to what extent they reimburse for psychiatric services rendered by an out-of-network doctor.
