Insurance: Please be aware that you are responsible for knowing the details of your individual mental health coverage and you can contact the benefits portion of your policy to explore this further. I am currently in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield (PPO/POS). If I am out of network with your policy, it is likely you can still use your insurance but you will want to be aware of any coverage limitations. You are responsible for meeting your deductible and for paying your copay. Your portion of payment is due at the time of the session. Currently I accept personal check and cash. For your convenience, I also accept debit cards and major credit cards. Please be aware, there is an additional 3.5% charge for this form of payment due to the cost of processing credit card transaction. Please see the Payment Policies form in the New Client section of this website for more information. Feel free to call me with any questions regarding use of your insurance, I am happy to assist with this.
If your insurance carrier changes while we are working together it is imperative you contact me at least one week prior to your scheduled appointment. Please know that it is your responsibility to research the details your plan and that you are fully accountable for any new deductibles or co-pays.
Flexible Spending Accounts or Medical Savings Plans: If you participate in your employers tax free medical savings plan it is likely that this plan can reimburse you for any amount paid towards your mental health services. Please check with your Human Resource Department for more details.
Out of Pocket Payment: For added privacy, you may choose to personally pay for psychotherapy services. Paying out of pocket for services prevents information from becoming a part of your medical record. Any fees paid may be reimbursed through your medical savings plan as discussed above. My out-of-pocket fee at of the time of this writing is $150 for an individual psychotherapy session. Please note that I provide a $10 discount per session for clients who pay by cash or check (with credit card authorization on file). In some rare circumstances and for some lower income clients I will provide lower fee appointments during limited scheduling times. Please contact me for more information.
