6. Which conditions are specifically excluded from treatment?



7. How many sessions will insurance cover? Is there a time limit?

8. Do I have a deductible or co-pay?

9. Do I need to schedule all of the visits by a certain date?

10. Does insurance cover out of network therapy services?

11. How do I get reimbursed for out of pocket therapy expenses? What do I need to provide the insurance company with?
