Every insurance plan is different.
I will work with you and your insurance to expedite services as smoothly as possible. Occassionally, you will have to contact them to resolve authorizations, unpaid claims or out-of-network payments.
For copays, out-of-network or
out-of-pocket clients, I accept cash, checks and most major credit cards.
With Couple and Family Therapy sessions and also Sex Addiction sessions, I don't take insurance. Couple/family sessions are charged like out-of-pocket sessions at $120. These sessions require special training and expertise that I have but unfortunately insurance companies think aren't valuable. They reimburse the same amount for an individual session as they do for a couple or family session. Doing therapy with 2 or more people takes double the effort and skill as doing therapy with 1 person. Sex Addiction is an area of expertise I have that involves much specialized training, problem conceptualization, and treatment planning.
If you cancel an appointment less than 24 hours ahead of time or do not show up for a scheduled appointment, this is considered a "same day cancellation/no show." In this case, you are responsible for the full amount of the missed session. Your insurance does not cover this cost. This is not personal, it is a standard business policy in private practice therapy.
