FINANCIAL / INSURANCE INFORMATION
We are out of network, private practice providers. This means that if you have out of network mental health coverage, you will likely be reimbursed for our services.
We recommend always contacting your insurer prior to treatment so that you are fully aware of the coverage you can expect. When calling your insurance company, make sure to ask them:
What is your out of network mental health coverage?
Do you have a deductible, and if so, what is it and how much of it has been met?
What percentage of mental health treatment can you expect to be reimbursed for?
- Are pre-certifications required?
Single Case Agreements for DBT and FBT
Insurance companies will sometimes approve DBT and FBT treatment with an out of network provider due to the significant empirical evidence supporting efficacy, cost-efficiency in terms of reduced hospitalizations and limited number of intensively trained providers in the area
Payment, via cash or personal check, is expected at time of service. A statement that can simply be attached to your claim form, with all of the information necessary for reimbursement, will be provided at the end of each month.
If you do not show up for your appointment or cancel with less than 24 hours notice, you will still be expected to pay for services.
Confidentiality and Privacy
Your confidentially and privacy are your legal right and our ethical obligation. The only time confidentiality is forfeited is when our legal obligation to protect your privacy is trumped by our duty to warn. This means that if in our best professional judgment, we believe that you are in imminent jeopardy of harming yourself or someone else, or someone else is harming you, we are legally mandated to warn appropriate authorities or family members.
