Eating Disorder Therapy

Insurance Coverage

Insurance Coverage

We will make sure that your insurance company covers your care.  You should never avoid calling us for fear they are not going to cover services. The reality is insurance companies will cover highly trained specialists when an in-network specialist is not available in the network. Hilltop’s Therapists are highly trained and dedicated to the recovery process. Private Insurance companies are paying attention to the value Hilltop provides and we can help you make the best of your benefits. 

Why are we out of network and why do we fight for your insurance to cover you?

Due to the complexity of these disorders, you get a whole lot more than just a therapist. We are one of the only group practices in New Jersey that focuses on Eating Disorder Treatment & Recovery.

We strive to make sure you receive highly trained, ethical, and research-based support as you make progress. We take pride in our work. The process of being in-network actually stop us from being our best. 

Often, in-network therapists have a caseload of 40-50 clients per week which quickly causes burnout.  Additionally, as specialists, they would not be able to coordinate and support your care with the management required to achieve recovery.

Believe it or not, being in-network additionally has requirements placed upon the therapist out of their control as the insurance company will dictate what they should focus on primarily. In their opinion they dictate your treatment without even knowing what’s going on in your life!

This causes privacy issues and concerns about the treatment you deserve. With expertise and advanced certifications in relationships with food, as well as co-occurring experiences such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and depression, we’re committed to quality care without interruption or interference.

All fees are commensurate with the expertise and required dedication towards our specialties, including our level of commitment and education (PhD, LCSW, Certified Eating Disorder Specialist, etc.). Our fees are in line with the current trends in cost throughout the tri-state area. Please contact us for more information about our fees.

Financial well being is a Mental Health concern and we want you to know we understand how important this is.  We aim to make therapy affordable. There are multiple ways you can use your health insurance benefits without compromising the quality of your care. When you contact us we help you understand your options.
