Potential risks of using Insurance
Please be aware that submitting a mental health or physical health invoice for reimbursement from any health insurance company, in any capacity, carries a certain amount of risk to confidentiality, privacy, or to future capacity to obtain employment, military affiliation, health, disability, or life insurance. In some cases, insurance companies may share information with a national medical information data bank. For example, your health insurance record may prevent employment at employers that require high level security clearance such as state employment, federal employment, law enforcement, or military employment. Individuals may also encounter higher premiums or exclusions in their care.
While this information is meant to be transparent, it is not meant to discourage seeking out mental health treatment. Please speak to your provider directly if this is a concern.
You also aren’t required to get care out-of-network. You can choose a provider or facility in your plan’s network.
To use insurance mental health benefits, a mental health/behavioral health diagnostic code is required.
Insurance companies may require access to your mental health record to reimburse your payment.
I accept cash, checks, HSA cards and credit cards for payment. Payment is due at time of service and I will require a credit card be kept on file. Unless otherwise requested, your session fee will be charged to the the card on file. This includes self-pay, co-pay, co-insurance and deductibles.
You are responsible for attending each appointment. If you cannot keep the scheduled appointment, you MUST notify my office to cancel or reschedule the appointment within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment time. Failure to adhere to this 24-hour cancellation policy will result in a fee. Missed appointment charges will automatically be charged to your card unless other arrangements are made.
Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.
I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
- Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
- Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
- Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
- Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
