*All sessions will be filed with your insurance carrier if you are IN NETWORK and elect to use your mental health benefits. As well, your sessions can be filed with any insurance carrier if you have OUT OF NETWORK mental health benefits.
It is essential that YOU understand your insurance deductible, copay, and recognize that you retain the final responsibility for any fees accrued during therapy. --- KNOW YOUR BENEFITS and FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY. Call the phone # on the back of your insurance card to verify Mental Health In or Out of Network Benefits.
If you would like to use your insurance but I am not an in-network provider for your insurance plan you can do the following:
-Provide me a copy of your insurance card
-Pay the Customary Rate
-I can file for you, for the reimbursement of your out of network benefit, or you can file yourself
*Not every insurance plan provides out of network benefits. Contact your plan prior to your first appointment to understand your responsibilities.
Cash, check and all major credit cards accepted for payment.
Payment will be arranged directly or through Simple Practice, a client portal which you will use to establish your information with my practice once an intake is established. I will send this information to you after we establish an initial intake session.
Sliding Scale Fees
Some sliding scale slots, or renegotiated session fees are available based on need and availability. Please contact me to inquire about sliding scale options if needed.
Paying for Mental Health with Insurance
Some helpful tips when dealing with insurance....
Check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
What is my copay for each therapy session?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
How much will my insurance plan reimburse me for OUT OF NETWORK providers? (if applicable)
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
I currently participate IN NETWORK for the following insurance panels:
Medicare (Not all Advantage Plans)
Blue Cross Blue Shield (Not Blue Home or Blue Value)
Aetna (My relationship with Aetna is in transition.)
Sessions via TELEHEALTH - Covid 19 requirements
The Global Pandemic has forced the majority of sessions to be provided through telehealth. Once we have agreed that a session time is available, I will connect you through a Client portal using the HIPAA compliant program, Simple Practice. It is very user friendly. Simple instructions will be provided.
You will be asked to sign forms that consent to telehealth, Then upload demographic information, as well as any insurance information you wish to use, and a current credit card for billing.
Please be aware that if you schedule an appointment and cancel in less than 24 hours from the appointment time slot, you are expected to pay for this appointment. If you use your insurance, your provider will expect you to pay for the missed appointment out of pocket. This is due to the fact that the hour is committed to you whether you come or not. On rare occasions this time slot can be refilled on short notice. I will let you know if your timeslot has been refilled. But if it has not, you will be asked to pay for a late cancellation.
