Typically, mind body programs are not covered by insurance. However, the individual counseling sessions can sometimes be reimbursed by health insurance companies. We will provide you with a statement, which you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement (coverage for mental health services vary among policies). We want to make our services available to as many people as possible so we offer them at a discounted rate.
