How do you protect my confidentiality?
You are protected by the laws of the state of Illinois and the ethics of the practice of psychology. I, as your therapist, cannot discuss anything about you with anyone without written permission unless it is a question of safety.
How much do you tell my insurance company?
Most insurance companies require the dates of services, a diagnosis and at times, a treatment plan. I can guarantee you confidentiality only in what I do. Once information is given to an insurance company, I cannot guarantee what they will do with your information. Insurance companies do share records with other insurance companies when necessary.
