Therapist's note

Preet and the team at Insight & Action Therapy accept all major insurance plans out of network, and will do all billing on your behalf. They strive to create an in-network experience so you don't have to worry about submitting claims and waiting for reimbursement from your insurance plan. They will check your benefits and work with you to determine a fee structure.

After any deductible has been met, you will pay a copay and the team will take care of the rest. Because seeing a provider out of network can often be quite expensive, Insight & Action Therapy does their best to work within each clients' budgetary constraints so therapy is not a financial burden.
