Insurance & Payment Issues
I do not file for insurance reimbursement. I’m considered an “out-of-network provider.” If you would like to use your insurance, I can provide you with a receipt for services, containing diagnostic codes required by insurance, for you to turn in directly to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Please contact your insurance provider and ask about self-filing options for “out-of-network providers.” See the handout entitled “Tips for Talking with Your Insurance Company Regarding Possible Reimbursement for ‘Out-of-Network’ Services” located at the Forms link – under Supplemental Reading – on this website. This handout provides recommended questions to ask your insurance company in order to determine what your out-of-pocket cost would be.
I accept cash, check and all major credit cards as forms of payment. Some HSA/FSA accounts allow for payments out of those funds and I can accept payment from a HSA/FSA card.
Cancellation/No Show Policy
For therapy: If you are unable to attend a therapy session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. If you cancel less than 24 hours in advance, a $50 late cancellation fee will be billed. If you do not show fo your appointment or only stay for a portion of it, you will be billed for the full session charge. If you arrive late for a therapy session, your session will still need to end on time and the usual fee will be charged.
For psychological evaluation: If you arrive late for an appointment, we may not be able to finish what was scheduled for that day and an additional appointment, at your expense, may need to be scheduled. If you cancel less than 24 hours in advance of your testing appointment or do not show for your appointment, you will be billed an additional missed appointment fee of $50.
Cancelling due to Covid-19: There will be no late fee charged if you cancel with less than 24 hours notice if you do so because, on the day of your appointment, you are experiencing symptoms of a possible covid-19 infection or you have tested positive for the virus. If you are a therapy client and feel well enough to have a session, we will do so by telepsychology. Unfortunately for psychological evaluation, doing it by video ethically is complicated. We could likely do a clinical interview by telepsychology although my preference in an evaluation is to do it in person. The testing process will not be able to be conducted online. While there will not be a late fee assessed if you cancel due to Covid-19, if there are too many cancellations of this nature, we will need to discuss how to solve the problem of the absences and services may have to be at least temporarily terminated.
