I promise transparency! My biggest pet peeve with behavioral health providers is when they make general claims and promises on their websites but don’t tell you what you’re in for financially. I promise you that your time and money matters to me!
I use the Simple Practice Patient Portal for sending out general practice information; setting up appointments; submitting your claims; and processing your payments. The easiest way to handle payments whether you’re using insurance (BlueCross BlueShield/Carefirst or Magellan) or paying out of pocket — is to select autopay on your Billing tab. If you are using insurance, you simply fill in your copayment after enrolling in autopay and entering your credit card information into Stripe. This is the only fee that will be charged the evening of (or possibly next day).
Note: If you are using other insurance that I’m not paneled with, you will pay the $200 out of pocket fee and I will issue you a superbill/receipt, which you can then submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. I will discuss alternate payments and options on an individual basis.
I understand that life happens and there will be times that you can’t make your appointment.
Please let me know ASAP if you can’t make your appointment for any reason. Although I strive to be accommodating to rescheduling requests, I can’t guarantee that I’ll have same day openings. You can cancel one session free of charge, but afterward, you’ll be charged the full rate for future missed appointments. There’s no additional charge for appointments I’m able to swap.
