Insurance

Please remember that as a mental health provider, my relationship is with you not your insurance company. Your mental health coverage is a contractual agreement between you, your employer and the insurance company. I am not a party to that contract. Not all services qualify as covered benefits under all contracts. My staff will assist you in verifying your eligibility and benefits, however; it is ultimately your responsibility to know what services are covered by your carrier.

My staff will file your insurance claim only if I am an in-network provider with your mental health carrier. My staff will not file insurance claims for any out-of-network benefits, but we will provide you with the receipt necessary for you to file for reimbursement from your carrier. If your mental health coverage changes, my staff will need at least 48 hours notice prior to your next scheduled appointment to verify eligibility and benefits. Failure to notify us of such changes will result in your having to pay the full fee. My staff will not be responsible for filing past claims to new insurance companies.

My fees are generally considered to fall within the acceptable range of mental healthcare services and are therefore covered up to the maximum allowance as determined by each carrier. While the filing of insurance claims is a courtesy extended to patients, all charges are ultimately your responsibility from the date services are rendered.


We work with the following insurance providers:


Cancellation Policy

Except for the initial appointment, my staff does not call to confirm appointments. Your appointment time has been reserved specifically for you. Being on time will ensure that you receive the full time scheduled. If you cannot keep a scheduled appointment, kindly call to cancel at least 24 hours in advance so that someone else can be seen for treatment during that time.

Regarding your appointment, the following will apply:
  • A responsible parent or adult must be present for the entire session for children under age 16. Children under the age of 10 cannot be left unattended in the waiting room at any time.


  • There is no charge for cancellations made at least 24 hours prior to appointment time.


  • There is a $45 charge for scheduled appointments cancelled less than 24 hours prior to appointment. This fee cannot be charged to the patient's insurance company and must be paid by the patient on or before the patient's next scheduled appointment.


  • There is a $125 charge for scheduled appointments to which you do not show up. This fee cannot be charged to the patient's insurance company and must be paid by the patient on or before the patient's next scheduled appointment.


  • If you are less than 15 minutes late for an appointment, you will be seen only for the remainder of your scheduled appointment.


  • If you are more than 15 minutes late for an appointment, the appointment will automatically be cancelled and you will be charged $45. This fee cannot be charged to the patient's insurance company and must be paid on or before the patient's next scheduled appointment. Seeing you for less time and filing the charges with your insurance company is fraudulent and illegal.


  • If you miss or cancel three scheduled appointments, I will no longer be able to work with you. However, I will provide referral sources to you so that you can continue your treatment.


  • Unfortunately, there are occasions when I am behind schedule. In this case, you will receive the 45-50 minutes of your scheduled appointment.
