I can bill most insurance companies; however I am a participating provider for the following: Premera, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Blue Cross/Blue Shield Federal Program, First Choice Health, Group Health (PPO), and Aetna and a few others. You can check online or with a customer service representative to find out if I am on your insurance’s provider panel. Being on the preferred provider list often means that your co-payment or co-insurance is less than if I am outside your insurance’s network. I can still however bill your company.
I do not take Medicaid or Medicare insurance nor do I accept Molina Insurance or United Healthcare if the mental health benefits go through Value Options.
When you call the office to make an appointment we will discuss insurance issues and what you can expect.
I ask all clients to be aware of the following information:
- Knowing your insurance policy, what your mental health benefits are, if you have a deductible amount and if that has been met, and your co-payment or co-insurance.
- You are expected to pay your co-pay/co-insurance or your fee at the time of service.
I am sometimes able to take clients for a sliding fee depending on the client’s income. Usually I do not go below $65.00 per one hour session.
Other billing information will be reviewed during our first phone contact or during our first session. You will be asked to sign a payment contract outlining your responsibilities regarding payment.
