Please call me to discuss my fees. I take payment with cheque or cash, and offer a number of sliding scale spots for those who need a reduced fee. I offer daytime and evening appointment times.
Therapy with me is typically reimbursable if you have out-of-network provider benefits. I will gladly provide a monthly statement and help with the necessary forms if you would like to obtain out-of-network reimbursement. I can provide a receipt for reimbursement from your Health Savings Account (HSA) if you have one through your employer.
I am an in-network provider with Blue Shield and Magellan, although do not currently have any in-network spots available. If you choose to use your insurance to pay for therapy, please carefully read the section in your insurance coverage policy that describes mental health services. If you have questions about the coverage, call your health plan administrator. I will provide you with whatever information I can based on my experience and will be happy to help you in understanding the information you receive from your insurance company.
Please be aware that insurance companies require me to provide them with a diagnosis before they will pay for treatment. I may also be asked to provide information such as treatment plans or summaries, or, in rare cases, copies of your entire therapy record. This information then becomes part of the insurance company files and may be stored digitally. In some cases, insurance companies may share your information with a national medical information databank. You may read this for more detailed information.
