Uncontracted Practice

What does this mean for you?

Ithaca is an uncontracted psychotherapy practice and uses the Nza rate for the independent mental health services. This means that treatment is not fully reimbursed from basic insurance.

Check your health insurance policy terms carefully to see what percentage of treatment is reimbursed. Keep in mind that you will most likely have to pay your deductible (of at least 385 euros).
