Therapeutic services may be covered by your health insurance policy or employee benefits plan. Please check with your policy provider to confirm that I am a network provider. The following questions may also be helpful:
Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
What is my deductible?
What is the amount of my co-payment?
How many sessions does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per session?
Do I need approval from my family physician?
If you wish to use your insurance benefits, rather than pay out-of-pocket, there are a few things you may want to know. Insurance companies require health care providers like myself to provide information in exchange for obtaining payment, thereby limiting your privacy. While insurance plans vary in information requiring disclosure, this information can include: your specific diagnosis, dates of service, symptoms, personal history, and treatment issues. They may also require my treatment plan and rationale, as well as information about your progress.
The information listed above may also be shared with a billing company. All insurance companies and billings companies hold your personal information in a strictly confidential manner.
Cash and checks are accepted for payment at the time of service.
You must notify me at least 24 hours in advance if you wish to cancel your therapy appointment. Otherwise, you will be responsible for the full cost of the session.
