    If you have a PPO insurance plan, we are happy to provide you with a statement (superbill) to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. When speaking with your insurance company, you can explain that we are out-of-network Providers. Most clients have a PPO plan that allows them to use out-of-network benefits. You are encouraged to call your insurance company and ask what their reimbursement policy is for out-of-network providers.
