I am an in-network provider for some insurance companies and will file after each session is rendered. At each session, you will be responsible to pay the amount of your co-pay. If you have a deductible, then you will be required to pay the full amount per session until that deductible is met. Please understand that you are fully responsible for any unpaid balance remaining after any applicable insurance payment is applied (i.e., after I file with your insurance company). If your insurance company refuses to pay, then you are responsible for the balance for services rendered. It is your responsibility to let me know if your financial situation changes and if you move. You also agree to allow me to share any and all information necessary to your health insurance company in order to bill for services rendered. Additionally, you authorize your insurance company to send payments directly to this agency.
Regarding Couples Therapy:
Most insurances will not pay for couple's therapy. If you wish to use insurance, one of the partners will have to be the identified client, and will need to be diagnosed with a mental health disorder, for services to qualify for benefit utilization. Each subsequent session will address the diagnosed issue. If upon the first session, neither partner qualifies for a mental health disorder, then they will be expected to pay for services not covered by insurance.
Out of Network Benefits:
If you are utilizing an insurance company of which I am not an in-network provider, then you will be required to pay for the psychotherapy session at the above listed rate. Check with your insurance company about out-of-network benefits (as you will need to file for your reimbursement). I will supply you with the necessary billing information.
If you do not have insurance, or have used up the maximum psychotherapy sessions allotted per calendar year, we can discuss the possibility of a reduced fee (based on income and number of dependents).
*I am in-network with the following insurances:
Blue Cross/Blue Shield
United Behavioral Health
I am NOT in-network with Badger Care or Medicare services.
I am in the process of contracting with several other insurances.
Fee-for-Service arrangements are available if you would prefer not to use your insurance, for people not qualifying for a formal diagnosis, or upon request. The benefit of this option is that the information is not linked to your medical record and that you will not need a formal diagnosis. These sessions may last one hour, or can be scheduled for longer periods of time (intensive counseling, discernment, or other specific concerns). If there are extenuating financial circumstances, please talk with me beforehand, and we can make arrangements for payment plans or a sliding scale based on financial need. Payments may be made by cash, check, credit card.
I use Simple Practice for billing purposes, including invoices/statements. These statements are sent monthly, and can be accessed on the client portal.
