Insurance Credentialing Question: I have an LPC [Master’s level provider. Also see LCPC, LICSW, LMHC]. Will getting a Ph.D increase my reimbursement rates from insurance companies?
Answer: Sometimes. To be reimbursed at a higher level, most insurance companies require that you not only have a Ph.D, but a Ph.D-level license (that is, be a licensed psychologist). However, in our experience one can usually persuade at least some insurance companies to pay at the higher rate, even with the lesser license, if you have a doctoral-level degree.
