Insurance

We currently accept BCBS, TriCare, and MedCost insurances. There may be some exceptions. Please note, not all therapists accept all insurances. If your therapist is in-network with your insurance, we will file claims and you will be responsible for any copays, coinsurance, or deductibles that apply. If they are out-of-network, you will be charged the full rate of service, but may request to receive a Superbill. You can submit the Superbill directly to your insurance company for reimbursement. We highly recommend calling your insurance company prior to scheduling your appointment to confirm your coverage. Check your coverage carefully by asking your insurance company the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is my deductible, and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

Cancellation Policy

You will be responsible to pay the full fee for any session that is missed or canceled less than 24-hours in advance. Missed or canceled appointments cannot be charged to insurance and are your responsibility. Please discuss with your therapist should there be an emergency or special circumstances.

Method of Payment

We accept all major credit cards. Payment is due at the time of service. We ask that you leave your credit card information on file for automatic payment by completing the form included in your initial paperwork. Cash and checks are only accepted for in person sessions, with advance notice.

Notice: Good Faith Estimate

The federal “No Surprises Act” grants consumers 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.
