Cash, Check, Credit Cards, including Health Savings Plan (HSA/HSP) credit cards, are accepted. Limited spots reserved for sliding-fee scale clients. All clients are responsible for knowing what their insurance benefits are, including deductibles, co-pays, co-insurance and out of pocket limits, prior to their first session. This information is found on your insurance company website or by calling your insurance company.
I am In-Network with: Aetna Blue Cross Blue Shield Bridgespan OHP Family Open Card Plan. (There are many OHP plans, please be aware of which plan you are on.) Cigna
I also take cash pay clients and provide out-of-network mental health services with any other insurance plan- if you have out-of-network benefits. In fact, approximately 40% of my clients see me as an out of network provider. Please check with your insurance company, prior to calling me, if you are out of network to determine if you have out of network benefits and what your out of pocket costs will be.
Billable services include, initial assessment and follow-up appointments. Services are billed different rates according to type of service provided, such as whether or not I am seeing an individual, couple, family or group. Other billable services include report writing, telephone conversations, attendance at meetings with other professionals you have authorized, preparation of records or treatment summaries, and the time spent performing any other service you may request of me. Some services will be covered by your insurance company, such as your intake and regular weekly/monthly appointments. Other services, such as no-show fees, letter and report writing, and collateral calls on your behalf may be your responsibility.
Please contact your insurance company to determine your plan benefits. I will bill your insurance as a courtesy to you, or provide you with invoice to submit on your own in certain circumstances, but you are responsible for monitoring your coverage.
If you become involved in legal proceedings that require my participation, you will be expected to pay for my professional time even if I am called to testify by another party. [Because of the difficulty of legal involvement, I charge $250 per hour for preparation, time and travel for any legal proceeding.] Be advised that your insurer is unlikely to pay for these additional services.
