Payment for services is expected at the time of each session. I accept cash, checks and credit/debit cards. Once a card is on-file in my practice management program, it no longer needs to be presented on a per session basis.
My own credit/debit card processing costs are approximately 5% of what is placed on the card.
I defray some of those administrative costs by passing on a 3% administrative billing fee to patients who use credit/debit cards for payment. That amount will be tallied and charged to your card on a once monthly basis.
Patients always have the option of paying for services with cash or check, in which case no administrative processing fees will be billed.
Standard non-insurance fees:
First appointment (if time not restricted by insurance) – 1 hr and 45 minutes – $250.
On-going individual appointments – 50 minutes – $125.
Non-Standard Meeting Times – 60 minutes – $150 / 90 minutes – $225
Bipolar support groups – 90 min., every other week. $35 per session.
Support group meetings are billed at $70 per month for twice monthly meetings ($35/mtg).
I am an in-network provider for:
- Anthem (BCBS)
If you’re covered by one of these insurance policies, you will only be responsible for payment of your co-pay and annual deductible.
If you have insurance that is different than those listed above, I’ll be glad to provide you with a monthly invoice that you can submit to your insurance carrier and potentially receive reimbursement for out-of-network expenses.
If for some reason insurance does not cover the billed fees (annual deductible has not been met, policy has lapsed, billed services are not covered, etc.), then you will be fully responsible for all unpaid fees.
