Do you accept insurance?

The providers at Persoma Counseling associates are currently in-network for several major health insurance, managed care, and EAP plans, including:

  • Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • UPMC
  • Aetna
  • Cigna
  • MH-Net / Health America

All copays are estimates, based on the information we were able to obtain from your insurance carrier.  We cannot guarantee payment from your insurance carrier; therefore, it is possible that the actual copay will be higher than anticipated.  You will be responsible for a balance over and above what you are expecting.

If you do not see your insurance plan listed, please contact us as therapists are individually credentialed with multiple networks.

Some people decide not to use their insurance for privacy purposes or because the service they are seeking is not covered by insurance.  If this is the case, we will be happy to discuss a fee-for-services arrangement with you.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We offer cash, check, credit or debit card services for your convenience.

Can I pay my bill online?

No, currently we are unable to accept payments online. If you like you can call the business office at 412-823-5155 X610 and they will be able to accept credit card payments over the phone.

Should I arrive early?

If this is your first appointment, the providers would like you to arrive 15 minutes early to fill out some paperwork.

What can I expect at my first appointment?

The first appointment is an opportunity for the therapist to get to know you and for you to get to know us. We initially start by reviewing your registration information and completing some basic paperwork. Once that is finished, the remainder of the time is spent discussing your goals, gathering additional background information and determining the best way that we can be of assistance.

Please check your coverage to verify:

  1. Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  2. What is my deductible and has it been met?
  3. How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  4. What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  5. Is approval required from my primary care physician?
