I currently am only accepting Cigna insurance plans. However if you have another plan you may be offered out of network benefits through your insurance company.
Out of Network Benefits Option:
These benefits are part of your mental health package, if you have one, where you are able to visit ANY licensed mental health practitioner of your choosing. Most people are not aware of having these benefits because your plan wants you to see one of their “in-network providers” because it costs them less. The difference between in-network and out of network, for you, is that with out of network you will have to pay up front and you are responsible for getting your costs reimbursed. Often what you end up paying out of pocket for this way is about the same as what your copay would be for in-network. This is how insurance used to work! In-network is just a fancy way of saying that the insurance company has a contract with a provider who agrees to receive a good deal of referrals from the HMO while accepting a significantly lower fee. This works GREAT for a larger mental health clinic, who has a billing staff and a slew of providers with flexible hours, and patients get scheduled with whoever has an opening in their schedule (I know because I’ve worked in these places). This does NOT work so great when you are one person working part-time and wanting to spend the hours you aren’t face-to-face with clients studying about ways to help them better and preparing for your next session.
Please understand: YOU are responsible for confirming any benefits and for submitting all claims and receipts directly to your insurance provider. While reimbursement is not a guarantee, it may be possible for you to be reimbursed 65-75% of the counseling fee (listed below), the equivalent of a typical copay.
What I will do: I will provide you with a detailed receipt (superbill) with all the necessary information so you can obtain counseling fee reimbursement if your plan has those great OON benefits. If it does not, and you really want to work with me and not a staff therapist who’s in your network, give me a call and we’ll discuss your options.
What you need to do: Call your health insurance program administrator to find out if you have Out of Network benefits. Ask how it works. Some plans will pre-approve a provider and make it easier on the patient to submit claims and receive reimbursement once all the approvals are made. If your situation means that you can only afford counseling with OON benefits, I urge you to contact your insurance provider ASAP prior to your first appointment and share this information with me prior to your first session. Your plan may ask for information about me such as my Tax ID or NPI number, which I will gladly provide. Please allow 24 hours notice minimum to receive answers to inquiries.
Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis. Reduced fees may be assessed by paying a month in advance. A sliding scale can also be assessed by filling out our scholarship form prior to your initial session.
Cash, check and all major credit cards accepted for payment.
Please be courteous to cancel your appointment 24 hours in advance. Our office policy is you will pay full visit price if your request to cancel is not made within 24 hours of your session.
Notice of Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical 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 bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or 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 1-800-985-3059.
