CAREER COUNSELING & INSURANCE
Don’t be surprised if you find that career counseling is not on the list of providers.
Many counselors have decided to leave the medical provider panels (for many reasons) and have a strictly self-pay practice.
Those professionals accept payment directly from their clients, like any other service provider specialist.
You can, however, see if it is possible to get reimbursement under your out of network provider benefits if your career counselor does not bill insurance.
Some employers do offer career counseling benefits as an option with Employee Assistance Programs (EAP).
*Check with your benefit provider to determine if professional career counseling is a covered option for sessions under your plan. Robin S. Fleischer Counseling, LLC currently works with Access Wellness Group EAP Solutions and REACH EAP & Workplace Solutions Provider.
*Additionally, Robin serves as a University of Phoenix Career Coach. (Please contact your academic team for an assignment to your Career Coach.)
Think of career counseling as a service in the same way that you think of any other professional service: You want to find a provider that specializes in working with career issues, and in general, you get what you pay for.
* Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day?
Expert counseling focused on career issues and life planning may cost more, but will provide you with freedom from medical diagnosis and flexibility of formats.
