Questions regarding insurance use for relationship counseling? The quick answer is this: couples therapy is not covered by insurance. If you have any questions about this contact your insurance provider directly and ask specifically if “couples therapy” or “marriage counseling” is covered.

Medical insurance is concerned with the identification and sequential remediation of disease and illness. All insurance reimbursement requires four things from the clinician: 1. Documentation of an identified patient who receives the focus of treatment, 2. Apsychiatric/mental health diagnosis for that identified patient, 3. An assessment and finding ofmedical necessity relevant to the diagnosis for the identified patient, and 4. A CPT code(Current Procedural Terminology) describing the method of intervention. There is no CPT code for couples therapy. While some therapists believe family therapy 90847 includes couples therapy, I believe that is in error. For insurance reimbursement family therapy 90847 still requires an identified patient with a psychiatric diagnosis specific to medical necessity.

Any documentation, or lack thereof, for insurance reimbursement that misrepresents the context of therapeutic services is insurance fraud and grounds for malpractice. While I believe couples therapy should be covered by medical insurance, its practice orientation does not fit within the rigid medical disease model of America’s insurance industry. However, many Medical Savings Accounts or Flex Fund Accounts can be used for couples counseling. Please inform me if you would like a receipt for your account.
