INSURANCE

My services can be billed as an out-of-network provider for most private health insurance programs. You are responsible to pay all fees at the time of service. I am happy to send you the appropriate paperwork to submit to your insurance company so they can reimburse you.

To determine if you have mental health coverage, the first thing you should do is call your insurance carrier and ask for “a quote of mental health benefits.” Generally your insurance card will have a phone number that is specific for mental health benefits. Some mental health diagnoses pay from your medical, rather than mental health, benefits. When you reach a representative ask the following questions:

What are my mental health benefits?
Does my diagnosis qualify for medical benefits?
What is the coverage amount per session?
What is my co-pay amount?
How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
What is my deductible for mental health before I am able to use my benefit?
How much does my policy pay for an in-network provider?
An out-of-network provider?
What is the protocol for accessing my mental health benefit?
Do I need a referral from my primary care physician?
Do I need to talk to a case manager with the insurance company to be “authorized” to receive services?
How do I submit a claim?
Are there any special claim forms needed to submit a claim?

Missed Appointment & Cancellation Policy

As with every relationship, communication and respect for each others time and schedule are cornerstones for positive interactions. Coming regularly and on time are important aspects of maintaining a good relationship. Making an appointment means you have asked me to set my time aside for you. With that in mind, if you do not show up for your scheduled appointment and have not cancelled your appointment at least 24 hours in advance you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.

Medicaid or Medicare

I do not accept either Medicaid or Medicare.
