INSURANCE AND BILLING
If you have a health insurance policy, it will usually provide some coverage for mental health treatment. You are responsible for knowing your coverage and for letting me know if/when your coverage changes.
You should also be aware that most insurance companies require you to authorize me to provide them with a clinical diagnosis. Sometimes I have to provide additional clinical information which will become part of the insurance company files.
In addition, if you plan to use your insurance, authorization from the insurance company may be required before they will cover counseling fees. If you did not obtain authorization and it is required, you may be responsible for full payment of the fee. Many policies leave a percentage of the fee to be covered by the patient. Either amount is to be paid at the time of the visit by check, cash or credit card. In addition, some insurance companies also have a deductible, which is an out-of-pocket amount that must be paid by the patient before the insurance companies are willing to begin paying any amount for services. If you refuse to pay your debt, I reserve the right to use an attorney or collection agency to secure payment.
If I am not a participating provider for your insurance plan, I will supply you with a receipt of payment for services, which you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please note that not all insurance companies reimburse for out-of-network providers.
I accept the following insurances:
Co-payments are expected at the time services are rendered.
ADHD Coaching Sessions are to paid at the time services are rendered.
Fees for Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Sessions are to be paid at the time service is rendered. Upon request, I will supply you with an insurance super-bill to assist you in filing with your own insurance carrier.
