Yes and no. Although Dr. Worthy is considered an Out-of-Network provider, she accepts insurance through Headway. Headway makes it easier for her as a provider (as it relates to billing and administrative work) and makes therapy more accessible and affordable for patients who are interested in seeing an Out-of-Network provider, like Dr. Worthy.
Through Headway, Dr. Worthy accepts United Healthcare, Oxford, and Oscar. If you have either of these insurances and are interested in working with Dr. Worthy, please visit her profile (see link below) on Headway and click “Book Now.”
For other patients who do not have the above insurances, please call your insurer and ask about your coverage for mental health services. Some of my patients pay out of pocket without involving insurance, while others submit a reimbursement form to their insurer.
Individual sessions are forty-five minutes and couples and family sessions are sixty minutes.
Yes, this will be discussed during the phone consultation. Dr. Worthy has 2-3 slots for clients who may need a sliding a scale. If those spots are full, she will put you on a waiting list and follow-up with you when there are vacancies.
For new patients, weekly therapy is suggested. Weekly therapy helps facilitate a stronger working alliance between therapist and client, an opportunity to build trust, to retain information learned in therapy, and it avoids relapses, to name a few.
