Forms and Fees
Therapy services can be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. If choosing to use your health insurance, you are still responsible for all or a portion of the session. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
Do I have mental health/substance abuse insurance benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met? (This applies to both in network and out-of-network benefits.
How much is my copay per session? How many sessions per year does my policy cover?
What is the allowed amount per therapy session?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Insurance companies regulations, outline time frames and max amount of time they will cover. Most insurance companies will cover one 53-60 minute session per week.
The first meeting is about information gathering. It is an opportunity to discuss responsibilities and goals and complete initial paperwork.
Sessions are usually scheduled for 55 minutes.
Payment is expected at the time of services unless other arrangements have been made. I accept cash, check, and all major credit cards via Ivy Pay.
I am contracted with and can bill directly to the following insurance companies (these would be in-network benefits):
Blue Cross/Blue Shield
St. John's EAP
I can file with many insurance companies that I am considered out-of-network with as well, please ask if you would like more details.
I understand that your time is valuable and hope you understand that of mine. I also understand that life happens! In the event that you are unable to to keep your scheduled appointment, please give me at least 24 hours notice. No shows or cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will be charged a minimum $65 cancellation fee.
At a future time, this will be where you can find forms needed for intake, request for documentation or a request for me to communicate with others.
