Thank you for selecting me as your mental healthcare provider. My goal is to provide the highest quality therapy care and to have clear communication of my Financial Policy. I am happy to offer quality counseling services and support to you and for your family. If you plan to use health insurance benefits billing claims will be submitted electronically. In 7 to 14 days we receive back in the mail or electronically an EOB (explanation of benefits). EOB correspondence indicates if you have a deductible and what percentage health insurance will pay toward your office fees. Health insurance companies require that the deductible is met before making payments on claims. They may also apply payments toward your deductible and the mental health provider is not reimbursed until the deductible is met. In this case, you are ultimately responsible for all charges not covered by your health insurance carrier.
I work in partnership with all major health insurance carriers in-and out-of-network. We ask that you contact your health insurance carrier to verify benefits. Otherwise we bill your health insurance carrier on your behalf and wait up to 30 days for an EOB. On day 30, if the bill has not been paid by your health insurance carrier; we charge the current credit card on file for the amount of the claim. If my practice is not in-network with your health insurance company my services may still be covered, but possibly to a limited extent. The EOB informs what extent. If you have questions or concerns about billing please call (816) 665-3003.
