Insurance Plans
Insurance plans vary therefore, it is important to check your benefits before your first appointment.  Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan.  Please check your coverage carefully by asking 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 (referral) required from my primary care physician?
  • Do I have out-of-network benefits?

Unless prior arrangements have been made, full payment is expected at each session.  Any portion of the fee not covered by your insurance company is due at the time of your appointment.  Payment can be made by cash or check.

Cancellation Policy
If you miss your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not given notice at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay $50.00 for failure to keep your appointment.  This fee cannot be billed to insurance
