Insurance

I am on the provider panel for Anthem Blue Cross, Aetna, Cigna, Blue Shield (some plans), Victim Witness, HealthNet (some plans), and Mental Health Net (MHN).

Your insurance may pay some benefits for psychotherapy with me as an out-of-network provider. Prior to scheduling an initial appointment, I strongly encourage you to contact your insurance company to verify mental health coverage and to determine what your benefits will be. As a courtesy to you my billing service will bill your insurance. However, you are responsible for payment of all fees.

A word about insurance: I want my clients to be fully informed about their treatment, especially when it concerns receiving a mental health diagnosis and releasing personal information related to your mental health and treatment to your insurance company. In order for your sessions to be paid for by your insurance company your treatment must be “medically necessary.” That is you will be evaluated for mental health concerns and an appropriate diagnosis (if present) will be given to your insurance company. If you do not meet the criteria for medical necessity your insurance will not cover your sessions and you will be responsible to pay out-of-pocket for all sessions. Some insurance companies require more information about your mental status and participation in treatment in order to continue your coverage.

All co-payments are due at the time of service. I accept cash (please have correct change) and checks.
