Insurance Information

Northwest Arkansas Psychological Group has agreements with a number of insurance companies. To fully understand what services your insurance company will cover, it is best to check benefits before your initial visit. This can be done by calling the number on the back of your insurance card and asking these questions regarding your outpatient mental health benefits.

When you call you will hear a recording to the effect that the information you are about to receive may not be accurate. Consequently, you, the client, are ultimately responsible for your bill if your insurance company isn't. We are very easy to work with, however, and a payment schedule can be set up for any circumstance.

If Dr. Back is not in network for your insurance company, that does not mean you cannot see him if you want. It only means your copay will be somewhat more. There is also a cash fee schedule for those who do not have or want to use insurance. The standard hourly rate is $160, with the first session only charge being $225.

We will file your insurance for you if that is your means of payment. Neither credit cards nor debit cards are accepted. We accept cash or check only.

Below are listed the insurances we DO NOT ACCEPT, because they have been difficult to deal with and seem resistant to financing quality mental health care. They include:

  • United Behavioral Health
  • UMR
  • LifeSynch
  • Medicare
  • Corphealth
  • Life Corp
  • Life Source
  • Medicaid
