I also serve clients with other health plans. These clients work with me as an out-of-network provider, and their insurance will sometimes cover a percentage of the fee for their session.

Here are three questions most clients want to know:
- Is Lisa Neuenschwander an in-network or out-of-network provider for me?
- What’s my deductible for in-network/out-of-network?
- What balance is remaining on my deductible?
