Using Insurance

 I am a contracted provider with PacificSource insurance company.  For all other insurance companies, my services may still be covered in part or whole as an out-network-provider. However, for insurances other than PacificSource I ask that you pay me directly; I will provide you with a document (superbill) that you can submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement sent directly to you. You may also use your Health Savings Account to pay for treatment and evaluation. If you would like to use your insurance benefits, please call your insurance company prior to your first visit in order to determine your out-of-network benefits (except for PacificSource). You may wish to ask the following questions:

  • What are my out-of-network insurance benefits for mental health? For psychological/neuropsychological assessment?

  • Do I have a deductible? If so, how much has been met in this calendar year?

  • Is preauthorization required (either from the treating psychologist or from a primary care physician?)

  • What percentage of treatment can I expect will be covered?

  • How do I submit out-of-network claims so that I can be reimbursed?

I encourage you to download and print this Insurance Benefits Worksheet prior to calling your insurance company. Please note that psychoeducational evaluations likely will not be covered unless there is a medical diagnosis.

Many people choose not to use their insurance in order to protect their privacy, and to avoid limiting the type and scope of treatment.  Insurance companies vary greatly in their willingness to cover assessment services. Please note that you, and not your insurance company, are ultimately responsible for payment of services. Always check with your insurance provider with questions about reimbursement.

Payment

Like other professionals, my ability to provide quality treatment depends on timely payment of services rendered. I accept cash, check, debit and credit cards, and Health Savings Account cards. Payment is expected at the time of service, except for PacificSource clients. I require that a valid credit card number be provided at the initial time of service, though you may choose to pay by other methods.

Neuropsychological, Psychoeducational, and Psychological Assessment: $175 per hour.

Individual Therapy-$150 per 50-minute session

Cancellation Policy

I am committed to providing timely, quality care to my clients. Your therapy or assessment session has been set aside for you. Therefore, I ask that you please provide at least 24 hours notice when you must reschedule or cancel your appointment. Failure to do so may result in being charged for the full session fee.
