Fees and Payment

Fees and Payment

I am in-network for many (but not all) BlueCross BlueShield plans. I also see patients who have different insurance as an out-of-network provider. This means if your insurance company offers out-of-network benefits, you should receive some reimbursement for the cost of my services. Most insurance companies that provide out-of-network benefits cover between 50%-75% of the cost per session. Contact your insurance company to find out what your specific coverage is and if you have out-of-network benefits.

We can talk about this in person if your coverage is confusing, or if you need any help understanding the information you have received from your insurance provider. I take payment directly from clients for services provided, and I accept personal checks and credit cards. I am happy to discuss my current fees with you in person as well, so please feel free to contact me with specific questions or we can talk about this when we meet.

Cancellation Policy

I require 48 hours notice to change or cancel a therapy session, otherwise I will charge the full fee (not just your insurance copay/coinsurance) for the session.

Good Faith Estimate

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost 

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

    • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
    • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
    • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
