From the NYS Office of the Professions: An LCSW who fulfills the insurance law requirements for supervised experience providing psychotherapy is recognized in New York State as a reimbursable psychotherapist. The "R" privilege requires insurance carriers to provide reimbursement for psychotherapy services whenever a health insurance contract includes reimbursement of qualified psychologists and psychiatrists. The "R" statute has been called "mandatory legislation." This designation is added to one's license number (e.g., LCSW R123456), and the practitioner's clients must receive reimbursement for mental health services under the regulation and limitations of the insurance law.
Available for in-person, video, and phone sessions.
Phone sessions are done only after the initial face-to-face in-person or video session, then once every six months of face-to-face in-person or video session after that.
