Many people have health benefits; either privately or through their employer. This coverage can cover the costs in full or part, depending on the benefits package. If you are wondering what coverage you have through your employer; either review your benefits information or contact your HR person. If accessing benefits through your employer, no one at your company will know what services you have accessed. The reimbursement request goes directly to the insurance company. The only thing reported to the employer is the dollar amount used.
Psychological sessions can also be claimed on your income taxes.
