Out-of-Network Claims

Healing Hoof Steps does not currently accept insurance.  However, a majority of our services are provided by licensed professionals.   If you see a licensed counselor and have out-of-network benefits on your health insurance plan, you may be eligible to submit a claim for partial reimbursement.  Many people do not know how or do not have the time to navigate this process on their own.  For your convenience, Healing Hoof Steps has partnered with GetBetter, a company that helps you submit out-of-network therapy claims. 
Simply use the app to capture a picture of your bill and the Better team will assist you with accessing any benefits you may be eligible for.  There is a small 10% fee for this service should you chose to you it. 

Better is a third party company and is not affiliated with Healing Hoof Steps.  The Better App is available for download in the Apple App and Google Play Stores.
