If You Are Paying Out-Of-Pocket, and you can't afford my full fees, you may be eligible for my Sliding Fee
Please let me know your gross annual income (as well as your spouse's, if you're doing couples therapy), plus your Out of Network benefits (if you have them; see below; I can also look them up for you), and I'll let you know what your fee will be.
If You Are Using Insurance, please call your plan prior to your first appointment to inquire:
What plan covers your mental health benefits? (This may be different from your medical plan.)
Am I listed as a participating provider? I am a provider for the following plans:
1. BlueCross BlueShield PPO, HMO and POS (including CareFirst, BlueChoice, Federal Employee Plan [FEP] and Anthem) (please note: I am disenrolling from these plans as of 12/1/19) and
2. Medicare (please note: I am not able to accept new Medicare clients at this time).
If you are not on either of these plans, check to see whether you have Out-of-Network Benefits, which may be similar to your in-network benefits after reimbursement. You will pay me up front, but I will file claims for you.
Do you need an authorization for psychotherapy?
Is couples therapy covered (if applicable)?
Are transgender-related services covered (if applicable)?
What is your cost share (deductible, copayment and/or coinsurance)?
If you prefer that I contact your plan, please provide me with your member number, tel. no. for Provider Services on the back of your insurance card and date of birth.
Payment: I accept check, money order, cash or credit cards for payment. (I charge a small convenience fee for credit card transactions.)
