Fees and Insurance

Do you take insurance?

I am considered an “out of network” provider. If you have insurance, PPO plans tend to reimburse some portion of out-of-network services. However, most HMO plans do not. The best way to find out if your insurance would cover my services is to call the number on the back of your insurance card.
Psychotherapy is also covered under most Flex Spending, Savings/Credit Accounts (aka. HSA or FSA). Contact your employer/HR department for details.

What do I ask my insurance company when I call the number on my card?

Here are some helpful questions to ask to find out what your coverage for my services would be:

~ Do I have outpatient mental health benefits with this policy?~ If not, have mental health benefits been “carved out” to another insurance group?
~ Do I have “out of network” benefits that would cover mental health services?
- May I receive a reimbursement for mental health services? How may I proceed to receive it?
~ Do I need a referral or authorization in order to see a mental health professional?~ How much is my deductible? How much of that has been met so far?
~ Do I have a co-pay or co-insurance?

How payment for services are made?

Sessions are paid at the time of service. Payments may be made by cash, check, credit card or Zelle.
IMPORTANT: sessions cancelled less than 24-hours before the scheduled time will be billed as a full session.
