Fees and Insurance

My practice is a fee-for-service practice. This means that payment for assessment and treatment is arranged directly with each client or family, and I do not bill or accept insurance. Payment is requested at each appointment, by check or credit card.  I do not participate in managed care networks or panels. However, many clients are able to utilize their out of network benefit coverage from their insurance policy to recoup a percentage of the cost of treatment. Please check with your insurance carrier to be fully informed of your benefits. I will prepare a monthly statement for you to submit to your insurance company to process claims.  Assessment and treatment fees may also be paid for by funds from a Flexible Spending Account or a Health Savings Account.
