eligible for receiving CalVCB here


All therapists at Tula may accept CalVCB.

Emma Todd, LCSW and Laura Swanson, ASW accept Aetna insurance.

For all other insurance plans, we are able to provide a SuperBill after payment is received for you to submit for possible reimbursement. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?

  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?

  • What is my copay amount (the amount you must pay at your session)?

  • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?

  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

  • How are services for out of network providers covered? 

  • What type of information about me does my insurance company need to collect from my therapist in order to submit payment for mental health benefits?

  • When information is collected, how is it stored and who is it shared with?
