Insurance I am not a participating provider on any insurance panels. However, if you have a PPO, EPO, or POS insurance plan, you may receive reimbursement depending on your “out-of-network mental health provider benefits.” As coverage amounts will vary based on your specific health plan, it is recommended that you call your insurance provider and ask the following questions prior to your first appointment if you are wanting to learn about your benefits. Talking to the claims department may be the most helpful route in seeking answers to these questions unless directed by your insurance company to speak with another department:
What are my out-of-network provider benefits for mental health/behavioral health therapy services? What percentage or amount is covered per therapy session?
Do I need to hit a deductible before my out-of-network benefits start covering mental health sessions? If so, what is my deductible and how much has been met?
Is there a limit on how many sessions per year my health insurance covers?
Is approval or pre-authorization required?
Are both in-office sessions and telehealth sessions covered under the out-of-network mental health benefits of my plan?
How do I go about submitting a superbill from my therapist to the insurance company in order to receive reimbursement?
Suspected child abuse, dependent adult abuse, or elder abuse. The therapist is required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person, the therapist must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
If a client intends to harm themselves, the therapist will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not work with the therapist towards the appropriate safety plan and the indication of harm is planned and actionable, the therapist may take further measures without their permission that are provided by law in order to ensure their safety.
Non-Discrimination Policy I do not discriminate against any individual on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, citizenship status, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, or veteran/military status. I provide an atmosphere of respect, dignity, acceptance and safety for all clients.
Trans Care I reference WPATH Standards of Care and adhere to the Informed Consent Model (ICATH) in my therapy practice.
Good Faith Estimate/"No Surprises Act" Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health 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 expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a 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 or call (800) 985-3059.
