What Forms of Payment Do You Accept?
We accept all major credit cards, cash, check, Flex Spending Cards, or Health Savings Account Cards as forms of payment. Payment is due at the conclusion of each session.
Can I Still Use My Insurance?
Yes! You can still use your “out-of-network” benefits. Our clinicians are considered “authorized out-of-network” providers with most insurance companies. At your request, we will give you a copy of the billing statement that you can send to your insurance company to request reimbursement.
Your insurance company may reimburse you for a large portion of your bill. Our clients who elect to use their out-of-network insurance benefits typically see reimbursement at a range of 50-90%. It's also important to note that the cost of therapy services can be applied to your deductible.
There are a few ways to submit your claim for reimbursement. You could send the information directly to your insurance company. You could also use an app like Better or Reimbursify to do the work for you.
Why Don’t You Accept Insurance?
There are many reasons we elect not to participate in insurance networks. Some of the most important ones concern the integrity of our client's care and the privacy of their information.
High Quality, Client-Centered Care
Short Waiting Times and Flexibility
When you file insurance claims, you are required to have a psychiatric diagnosis in order to be reimbursed. Sometimes this is the case, but often our clients' experience doesn't fit into a categorical diagnosis. Furthermore, we have many high profile clients who do not wish to have diagnoses connected to their health record in ways that may impact security clearances or their ability to obtain insurance in the future. These are unfortunate realities of our healthcare system but important ones to consider. A diagnosis becomes an immutable part of your medical and insurance record. Clients who pay privately for services are not required to have a diagnosis and are able to ensure complete privacy of their health information from insurance companies.
Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us and we choose to allow you to be the one to file claims with your insurance provider if you wish to do so. We assist you in providing an easy document that makes the process seamless but puts you in control of your health information.
Another reason we opt out of insurance is that insurance companies often dictate a specific number of sessions for certain diagnoses (everything is boiled down to numbers). We know that there is no replacement for the qualitative data gleaned from sitting across from you as we grow to know you well. We offer specialized care that is client-centered. We want to empower you and help you meet your goals effectively and quickly without pressure to "wrap things up" before you’re organically ready. We tailor our treatments for you, not for insurance companies. Given that we are not bound by the limitation of insurance, we can be available to you in a more flexible and open manner. We can match you with one of our doctoral-level specialists who can develop the right treatment plan for you based on your needs and will be available to you when you need them.
Providers who accept insurance often are bogged down with long wait times. We offer immediate availability and flexibility in scheduling. We know you are busy with life or work and are happy to find times to meet that feel reasonable.
What Should I Ask My Insurance Company?
If you want to learn about your out-of-network benefits, just give your insurance a call and ask them a few questions to see what their coverage is like. Here is a helpful guide to aid you in the process:
What are my out-of-network mental health benefits?
What is the reimbursement rate for an out-of-network provider?
Do I have a deductible?
What is the allowable coverage amount per therapy session with a doctoral level provider?
How many therapy sessions would my plan cover?
Would approval from my primary care physician be required?
