FEES & INSURANCE
Navigating insurance eligibility can be challenging. Insurance benefits are subject to change. Check with your insurance plan for any requirements for behavioral health benefits. This includes your out-of-network coverage, session limits and authorizations. I am in-network with CareFirst Blue Cross, Cigna and Aetna.
As I am a licensed psychotherapist, my fees qualify for reimbursement for most insurance plans. My fees are considered within the “usual and customary range”. If you decide to submit a claim for insurance reimbursement, I’ll help you make the process as clear and smooth as possible.
Please feel free to contact me ([email protected]) about questions or concerns you have about fees and insurance.
Payment is due at the end of each session. Payment can be made by check or PayPal.
I will give you a billing statement in each new month for the previous month. This bill includes diagnosis code, clinical services, dates of service and payments made. It also includes information the insurance company requires about my license.
The confidentiality of communication between a client and a therapist is important. Your confidentiality is protected by HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Guidelines 1996. I make every effort to keep information regarding your treatment confidential, as is required by law. Exceptions: Information can be released without your permission if you are a danger to yourself or others, or are unable to care for yourself; if there is suspected elder, dependent-adult or child abuse/ neglect; or if I am ordered by a court to release information.
I am available for sessions daytimes and evenings, Sessions are typically 50 minutes but may extend longer when appropriate.
TELEPHONE OR SKYPE SESSIONS
Phone and/or Skype sessions are available.
