Cancellation Policy

Your appointment time is a commitment and has been reserved specifically for you. Due to this, 24-hour notice is required for cancellation, except in the case of an emergency. Cancellations less than 24-hours in advance will be subject to the full session fee.

Payment

Fees are due at the time of each session. Cash, personal check, and credit cards are accepted.

I may offer a limited number of reduced fee appointments, which can be discussed on a case-by-case basis at my discretion. Additionally, students are given priority for sliding scale and reduced rates.

Insurance

I do not accept assignment of benefits (insurance plans), nor participate in managed care insurance plans (HMOs and PPOs). However, I am happy to assist in providing you documentation for Out of Network reimbursement through your insurance plan. This will come in the form of a monthly superbill, which you can then sumbit for full or partial reimubursement by your insurance company. Please remember, you are responsible for the full fee, regardless of your insurance company’s reimbursement policies. I encourage you to call your insurance provider to verify whether or not you have Out of Network benefits, at what rate they reimburse, and the details of your deductible. This will inform you of your coverage and will help you make the best decision regarding your treatment.

You should be aware that, while your health insurance may pay part of the costs of treatment to a therapist who accepts insurance, the benefits cannot be paid until your health insurance provider authorizes your services (agrees to pay). As part of this, many health insurance companies set limits on your treatment and require disclosure of what would otherwise be your confidential clinical information to authorize payment. This includes a psychiatric diagnosis, recommended treatment, your progress in treatment, and status in many other areas of your life. This information becomes part of your medical record.

I encourage you to check your coverage carefully so you are informed about the benefits offered before scheduling an appointment.

I am happy to discuss payment options, referrals, and additional resources that may be of use, depending on your situation. Please contact me to discuss your payment options in greater depth.
