Available upon request.
Many of my clients prefer to keep their therapy private from their insurance companies and pay for my services entirely out of pocket. You are not required to use your insurance. However, if you would like to use your insurance keep in mind that I do participate with some but, it is best to discuss this with me, since mental health coverage is not always through your main carrier.
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- Do I have out of network benefits ?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Many insurance policies provide out of network coverage, meaning you can see someone who is not in-network for your particular insurance company and get reimbursed for the session. Check with your insurance company to see if you have this benefit. I will happily assist you in getting whatever reimbursement you are entitled to by providing you with any required diagnostic codes, billing codes, and receipts. In addition, I can do the billing directly for you and this can save you from paying me directly and having to wait for reimbursement. Please call or email to discuss.
Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis.
Payment in full is requested at the time of each visit; I accept checks or cash. If needed, I can furnish you with a statement for possible reimbursement from your insurance company.
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
