Process…
1. Call one of the approved counselors and set up an appointment.
2. Identify yourself as a pastor, spouse or immediate family member of the CNY District of the Wesleyan Church.
3. Establish the fee with the counselor. The CNY District will cover 80% of the counseling costs. The pastoral family is responsible for the remaining 20%. If you have health insurance, and the counselor you see accepts insurance, the insurance company should be charged first. The CNY District will then cover 80% of your “out of pocket” cost.
4. The district’s contribution will not exceed $1,500 per pastoral family
5. Counselors will confidentially bill the CNY District directly:
*Number of pastoral families counseled
*Number of hours counseling was provided
*Cost of counseling to the CNY District
6. Names of those counseled will not be released to the CNY District unless the pastoral family releases the information voluntarily.
