I'm not sure what she could do that would make this less of a hit for you. I get billed on a monthly basis, and generally rely on the reimbursement from the last month to help me pay the next month (unless of course I immediately submit the claim and wait to pay her until after I'm paid). But I have savings that can cover this until I get reimbursed, so it works ok for me. I would not like to have to pay separately for each visit, and by now, my T knows I'm good for it so she's not worried about me getting too far behind. I guess it doesn't work out that differently for you. If it takes 5+ weeks to get reimbursed, I assume you're out the equivalent of the cost of 4 or 5 weekly sessions at any given time. Would it work any better if she billed you monthly and you used the reimbursement from the previous month to cover the bill? It might mean less administrative hassle, but I think it still leaves you short by the same amount.

You should talk to her about this. Maybe there is a compromise, like paying part of the bill at the time of service instead of the whole bill.
