No third party payment arrangements will be agreed to, or accepted. Please work this out with your people.
Phone sessions: Must have a credit card on file (for ongoing clients). --- Insurance I accept PPO plans, meaning that I will prepare a super bill for you to submit to your insurance provider. Super bills in this format cover a time period of six sessions and typically will not be prepared in less than this amount of time, except in rare situations (such as, changing insurance companies and needing to make a claim).
The client requests a super bill and the following session you will have a fully prepared super bill to submit to your insurance carrier. I highly recommend that you always make copies of your superbills!
How SUPER BILLS work: The insured client pays the therapist directly at each session. A record of attendance combined with diagnosis, employment, and home information is detailed by me on the SUPER BILL which is then given to you. Please note that many insurance companies require a social security number in addition to the above information.
As the client you submit this 'bill' for reimbursement to your insurance company.
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan, so please check with your insurance carrier carefully.
Helpful Questions to ask when inquiring about your coverage:
Do I have mental health insurance benefits? What is my deductible and has it been met? How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover? What is the coverage amount per therapy session? Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Missed Sessions and Late Cancellations Missed sessions or late cancellations will be billed at full rate.
Super Bill 'Re-do' With each superbill, I recommend that you make a copy of it and I will remind you of this every time I give you a superbill, as insurance companies will reference things you need to be able to speak to on that super bill. Additionally, there are times they report that they didn't receive it, and there are times I give super bills to clients and the client loses them. Super bill RE-generation is $20.00 and will be added onto the following session fee.
Making a copy will bi-pass this need for the same bill to be generated and thus avoid this charge!
Late Arrivals: Sessions will be held up to 15 minutes past agreed upon session time. Any arrival beyond that 15 minute window constitutes a missed session, and appointment will be canceled and charged at full fee.
Late Payments with debit and credit cards Payment is due at time of service and I allow credit/debit cards to be on file as a courtesy, so as to ensure more time for therapy to occur during the entire session, without business taking up any time. For those who continually lose cards or who continually do not re-load their cards prior to our session, $15.00 will be added as a late fee per my needing to 'chase down' the payment. This is akin to a bounced check and the amount of time and back and forth communication it takes to recover the payment.
Consultations There is no charge for an initial phone consultation to see if therapy is right for you.
