Fees & Insurance
Fees & Insurance:
I am not contracted/paneled with any health insurance provider; therefore I am considered an "Out of Network" provider. This means that I do not accept insurance, and payment is due at the time of service.
You can request reimbursement for out of network benefits from your insurance company; insurance companies may reimburse part of service fees paid. It is important to know your insurance plan's out of network benefits and limitations. I recommend calling your insurance company prior to initiating services and ask about any deductible that needs to be met prior to out of network reimbursement, percentage of coverage, benefit limits, and the process for reimbursement. If you are interested in submitting for out-of-network reimbursement, I will provide you with a detailed receipt you can submit to your insurance company called a superbill.
Please see the psychological services pages for fees.
Federal "No Surprises Act" Information:
The federal “No Surprises Act” grants patients the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much their medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers, including psychotherapists, must give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for treatment services.
Accordingly, you have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. If you are interested in potentially working with me, I will provide you with a Good Faith Estimate in writing prior to your initial appointment. You can also ask me to provide you with a written Good Faith Estimate before scheduling a session with me. And should we work together, I may provide additional or revised estimates as warranted at later times.
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. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises/.
