FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you accept insurance?
MFT Therapy services are often reimbursable by most insurance companies. Focht Family Practice is a provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO.  We also work with other insurance companies as an out-of-network provider.  If you would like to use your out-of-network benefits, a receipt will be provided to you to submit to your insurance provider. Please check with your insurance provider to confirm your eligibility for reimbursement. 

How long will I be in therapy?
Sessions are scheduled on a weekly basis and services last as long as you and your provider agree they are necessary.  The treatment process is goal oriented and sessions begin to taper off as you approach the ending phase of services.
