Do you accept insurance?
I am considered out-of-network by all insurance entities. At your request, I can send a claim to your insurance company and they can reimburse you directly, in accordance with your out-of-network coverage. Or, if you prefer, I can issue you a monthly statement to file directly with your insurance company. Please note that all fees are due at the time of service.
Why are you out-of-network with my insurance company?
Good question! If you would like to find out more about the reasons why I, along with so many other seasoned clinicians, are opting out of third-party contracts, click here.
How much of the therapy session will be covered if I go out-of-network?
Once your yearly deductible (if applicable) has been satisfied, insurance companies tend to reimburse 60-90% of the service fee. Keep in mind that reimbursement rates vary across health plans. I encourage you to contact your insurance company to ascertain the out-of-network parameters of your health plan. The list of questions below will help you do this.
