Insurance* Insurance Acknowledgment Almost everyone I see gets reimbursed through their insurance using Out-of-Network benefits. You may want to check with your insurance company to see if you have Out-of-Network benefits prior to therapy. You may also want to find out your deductible, what percent of each session is covered and if there is a limit to the number of sessions allowed. I can give you a receipt for your visits which will include all the necessary information needed by the insurance company. Receipts are given quarterly, at the end of therapy, at the end of the year or when you do your taxes. You can request a time that works for you. Once you have a receipt from me, you can send it to your insurance company for reimbursement. The address of where to send it, is usually on the back of your insurance card. Fees / Session Length* Fees / Session Length Acknowledgment The fee for each session is agreed to in advance, and required at the time of service. Hourly sessions last approximately fifty (50) minutes. An hour and a half session would last 75 continual minutes. Credit card payment is preferred. Cancellations* Cancellations Acknowledgment For all scheduled appointments, 24 hour notice is required or you will be charged the full hourly fee. For any first time appointment where a 24 hour cancellation notice is not made or if the client does not show, there is a $95 charge for missing the reserved 50 minute appointment time.
