Insurance

I am experienced and comfortable working with you so that you may gain the benefits you are entitled to from your insurance carrier.

More information about insurance:

How does insurance work?
First check with your insurance carrier.
Check your coverage carefully and find the answers to the following
questions:

  • Do I have mental health benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
  • How much do you pay for an out-of-network provider?
  • Is there a limitation on how much you will pay per session?
  • Is primary care physician approval required?

Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan for in network or out of network providers.

Insurance Reimbursement

Reimbursement is not guaranteed.
The following points are important to note when considering whether or not you want to use insurance, whether your therapist is a provider in your network or if you have an 'out of network' provider (meaning they are not on your insurance carrier's contract):
You must have a Mental Health Disorder diagnosed for insurance to pay. Having a diagnosis does not guarantee coverage. If your insurance company does not reimburse then you are responsible for the full session fee for any sessions not covered. Diagnosis remain in your insurance file and could potentially be accessed by other insurance companies, your employer, etc. Once your confidential records are submitted to insurance your therapist can no longer protect the information.

Payment

Check or cash upon the closing of each session.

Cancellation Policy

24 hours cancellation notice is required or you are responsible to
pay the full session fee of $150.00.
