THREE PAYMENT OPTIONS
Only Cash and Checks may be Used for Payment
I'll Take Care of the Paperwork!
I am an in-network provider for the following insurances (I am contracted with each of them) and will bill them regularly on your behalf. I will need a copy of your identification card or all of the information contained on that card forwarded to me prior to our first appointment or at our first appointment. I will confirm your coverage with you either via email prior to our first session if time permits or when I have confirmed your coverage but as early as possible.
I am contracted with the following Managed Care and Employee Assistance Programs (EAP)
AETNA Resources for Living EAP
Anthem Blue Cross of California
Blue Care Network
Blue Cross Blue Shield
Blue Shield of California
Human Affairs Intern’l of California (HAI-CA)
Patients covered by these insurances are requested to pay the designated co-payment defined by their insurance policy and any remaining deductible at the beginning of each session. The insurance company will pay the remaining session allowance directly to me and you will receive a notice from them each time a payment is made.
Insurance Reimbursement when Therapist is out of network or a PPO Provider
For all other insurance plans not included above, I am considered an out-of-network provider or a PPO. I will still bill your insurance company on your behalf and to do so I will need a copy of your identification card or all of the information contained on that card forwarded to me prior to or at our first appointment. I will confirm your coverage with you. This will allow you to decide if the financial information fits your situation before we meet in a first face-to-face session. There can be an applicable deductible amount and/or higher co-pay than if a member chooses a contracted therapist. In this situation, payment for the full session is to be made at the beginning of each session; any payment by the insurance company will be made directly to you.
Fee for Service or out of Pocket Fees (If you do not have insurance or do not wish insurance to be billed)
$150.00 Initial History Taking and Assessment
$125.00 Individual Session
$140.00 2 person/Couple Session
Unless other arrangements are made, it is my policy to request full payment at the beginning of a session
Questions? Please contact me for further information or any assistance you may need.
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me by telephone at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session. Please note that insurance will not cover missed sessions
