We will discuss my fee on your first visit. In certain situations I offer a sliding scale for patients experiencing a financial hardship.
Please understand that as my patient you are financially responsible for each session. Sessions cancelled within a reasonable time period may be rescheduled provided I have availability in my schedule to accommodate you. Additional time for services such as school visits, reports, and extended phone calls over 15 minutes will be prorated at the agreed upon session rate.
Your financial relationship with me as your therapist will continue as long as I provide services or until you inform me in person that you wish to end therapy. Please plan to meet with me at least once before discontinuing therapy.
I believe in providing optimum care and due to the restrictions placed upon the therapeutic process insurance provides, I decided to stay out of network with most insurance companies. However, the good news is that many insurance policies provide out-of-network benefits. Sessions are often covered at 70-80% after the deductible has been met. This is individual and specific to each and every policy, and something you should discuss with your benefits manager at work or your insurance company.
Let me know if you have confusion about submitting to your insurance company for reimbursement. I’m glad to answer any questions I can.
Call for an appointment and let’s start the process.
