Do you accept insurance?

Houston OCD Program is a self-pay treatment program, we do not accept payment from third party providers (e.g. insurance or loan companies). Families can file independently with their insurance for out-of-network coverage with a superbill provided by the clinic. Families can contract with SJ Health Insurance Advocates, who can assist families, for a fee, in receiving reimbursement from their insurance companies. We cannot guarantee reimbursement, but SJ Health Insurance Advocates will assist you in accessing what reimbursement is available. Please contact us at should you have any additional questions regarding the insurance reimbursement process.
