While understanding the implications for clients with active health benefits, ATS is a values-driven practice focused on providing affirmative treatment services that are not always aligned with the deficit-based medical model of managed care.
We have chosen to prioritize our clients’ right to privacy and their role as primary-decision makers regarding diagnoses (or lack thereof), confidentiality of treatment records, and genuine treatment needs. Given our work with neurodivergent, LGBTQIAP+, and other minority communities, providing out-of-pocket services allows us to minimize the risk of harm, including (but not limited to) rejection of coverage based on reviews of private health information by complete strangers.
As an Out of Network provider, clients will be billed at time of service and are responsible for all upfront payments. ATS is readily prepared to offer monthly documentation (known as “superbills”) for clients to submit to their insurance for reimbursement.
