My fee is $190.00 for a fifty minute session.
Unless there is a prior arrangement, full payment is required to be paid monthly. I will provide you with a financial statement at the beginning of each month for the prior month’s session. I do not bill insurance companies directly but on the monthly statement I will provide the necessary diagnostic and procedural codes for you to submit. You are responsible for the payment. Insurance reimbursement typically takes one to two months. Sometimes, insurance companies send the check to me in which case I can sign it over to you or apply the amount to the following month’s balance.
How frequently we meet depends on a variety of factors. Dialogue and ongoing review will allow us to consider the level of frequency that will be most useful to you.
Once we decide to work together, it is best to find appointment times that are workable for the both of us, and will be consistent from week to week. For the duration of our work together, you will be responsible for payment for each appointment regardless of whether you have attended. You are not charged for the sessions when I am unavailable because of a pre-planned absence or illness. A GFE (good faith estimate) of expected charges is available and can be requested by patients who are using out-of-network insurance or are self-pay.
