At this time, we DO NOT participate in any insurance plan including Medicaid, and we have OPTED OUT of Medicare. Like many experienced psychologists and counselors, we do not belong to managed care panels in light of concerns clients have about privacy and quality of care. We want our work to be absolutely private and the confidentiality of managed care insurance plans insurance records cannot be guaranteed. It is part of our philosophy that the therapist and client decide when to end the work, not a for-profit corporation.
We will provide you with a receipt which has all of the information your insurance company will require for you to submit for out-of-network reimbursement (if you are eligible). Be aware that it will include a psychiatric diagnosis, since health insurance is only for medical treatment. A diagnosis may affect future eligibility for life or disability insurance, which is a personal decision you will have to weigh. If you cannot afford treatment without insurance, then you must balance the costs and the benefits for your particular situation.
To determine your benefits , contact the 1-800 number on the back of your card and specifically ask them about your “Out-of-Network” coverage. Ask your insurance provider what your “Deductible” is and what they will pay for once it has been met.
All major credit cards are accepted as forms of payment. You will be provided with a secure link for payment processing.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.
Any Other Questions
Please contact me for any additional questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
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.
