I also offer 5 sliding scale appointment slots per week for folks who cannot afford the full session fee. Please let me know if you need help affording our sessions, I am happy to work with you.
I offer fee-for-service therapy, this means I don’t accept in-network insurance. If insurance is the only way to get the support you need, you can talk to your insurance provider about out-of-network options to see if our work together would be partially covered. I will provide you with a receipt you can submit directly to your insurance company.
Please know that not all insurance plans offer reimbursement and that some may have a deductible or an allowable amount. It is best to call the number on the back of your insurance card and speak to a representative about what your specific benefits are. In addition, insurance companies typically only reimburse if the client has a diagnosable mental health condition. I'm happy to talk this through with you at any time.
QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY:
There should be a number on the back of your insurance card that you can call to ask questions about out-of-network (OON) reimbursement. In general, most PPO plans (not HMO) have OON benefits. I would be considered an OON provider, and you would be receiving individual counseling or family therapy, out-patient mental health services with a licensed clinical social worker.
Are mental/behavioral health services (Current Procedural Terminology/CPT codes 90837 for individual therapy, or 90847 for couples therapy) covered by my out-of-network benefits?
What is my out-of-network deductible?
How much of my out-of-network deductible has already been met?
What is my policy period?
How much of the fee is reimbursed for out-of-network providers?
How do I submit for reimbursement?
How long do I have to submit my Suberbill?
How long will it take to be reimbursed for sessions after I have submitted my claims?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Will you reimburse for 2 sessions in a week?
Most insurance companies have a way to submit claims through their website or client portal. A lot of my clients like using Reimbursify which is an online service that will do your out-of-network billing for you. They charge $1.99 per reimbursement claim (you receive a check in the mail if your reimbursement is accepted). However, if your claim is rejected by your insurance company, Reimbursify will help you to resolve it, and there is never any additional charge if you need to resubmit an updated claim for the visit.
All session fees are due at the time of service. Payment can be made by the credit card on file. Payment is due at the end of each session.
The cost of counseling may be able to come out of a Health Savings Account, or Flex Spending Account. Please ask your HSA provider if you have any questions, I will provide you with a receipt. It is your responsibility to understand the out-of-network benefits and limitations of your plan.
LATE CANCELLATION AND NO SHOW POLICY
The full session fee is charged for missed appointments or cancellations with less than a 48-hour notice. I will always support you in doing what you need to do to take care of you and/or your family. However, barring life threatening emergencies, if you are unable to provide the 48 hours advance notice, you will be charged my hourly fee.
I consider any appointment that you have made with me important. Your appointment is for your exclusive use and when it is cancelled with short notice, or missed altogether, it is often too late or impossible to offer this time to someone else and the appointment time goes unfilled.
Good Faith Estimate Notice
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call (800) 985-3059.
