What is a superbill?
A superbill is an itemized invoice that details the services you received for treatment. When your mental health counselor is not an “in-network” provider with your health insurance, they may need to use this form. This form documents your treatment, and can be used by you to create a claim for reimbursement. You will have to submit this form to your health insurer on your own.
Even if a therapist issues you a superbill, your insurer might not provide a reimbursement; it depends on your outpatient mental health coverage and the insurance networks your therapist is a part of.
SuperBill is an easy service that can help you file superbills with your insurance and get reimbursements. They also have great information about what a SuperBill is and how you can use them to get out-of-netork reimbursements.
