Therapy can be an expensive personal and financial commitment.

Investing financially in yourself and taking committed action towards your goals is the most efficient way to get a return on your investment.

In Network Insurance

I am In Network with the following insurance providers:

  • Cigna
  • ComPsych
  • Modern Health
  • MHN–HealthNet company
  • United Health Care/Optum

As a courtesy, I conduct benefits verification prior to the initial appointment. Your receipt of the Verification of Benefits form is your estimated share of costs.

Clients are responsible for any share of costs when using insurance, including the full fee if insurance does not cover the service.

Clients are automatically enrolled in autopay, so co-pays, deductibles, and coinsurance will be automatically collected on the day of service.

Please become familiar with your benefits plan for any co-payment, coinsurance, or deductible, prior to initiating services.

Out of Network Insurance

Out of Network means I have no agreement with the insurer to provide services. I still conduct courtesy Verification of Benefits to identify any “Out of Network” benefits that may cover all or part of services.

  • Clients are required to pay the full fee upfront.
  • You can submit a claim to your insurer and request reimbursement for receiving services from an “Out of Network” provider. Some insurance plans have Out-of-Network coverage or reimburse “usual and customary” fees.
  • I provide documentation (a Superbill) to submit with your claim that has all of the necessary information for your insurer to consider the claim.
Benefits Information

You may check your own benefits prior to scheduling an appointment, so you have an idea of any share of costs (e.g. co-pays, coinsurance, deductibles). You can use the Verification of Benefits form to guide your conversation with your Insurance Representative.
