Insurance (In-Network/IN & Out-of-Network/OON)

Insurance companies negotiate various contracted rates with their providers.  Please understand that insurances only cover medically necessary treatment conditions that can be coded for mental health/MH disorders in the DSM 5.  EAPs will cover non-MH related issues per issue.  I do not engage in creative billing per my contracts and ethics.


If you are utilizing your health insurance you will be responsible to pay your remaining deductible and/or co-pay/co-insurance at the time of session. You are also responsible to know your plan information and attain any required authorization needed to utilize your benefits.  I provide you with a questionarre walking you through how to determine insurance information.


If you are utilizing me  "out of network"/OON your coverage is determined by your insurance company plan. You will need to ask them about your specific OON benefits. You will pay my fees at the time of service, I will submit a courtesy claim and/or provide you with a superbill to submit to your insurance, and your OON will pay you based thereafter on your OON coverage. After I courtesy submit your claims or provide you with a superbill, I will no longer be involved.

Payment Methods

I prefer cash or check for payment but credit card processing is available in the client portal. Payment is expected at time of session.


This will mean that if you utilize insurance  that you will need to know what your copay/co-insurance and/or deductible amounts are to be ahead of time.  If you are utilizing insurance or EAP - the Insurance or EAP Information Form will help you be prepared for what you will need to pay (it walks you through a call to your insurance or EAP provider that helps you determine your benefits.


A credit card authorization is requested for those paying by credit card.

Additional EAP Information

For those utilizing their EAP benefits through their company or their family member's company - these sessions are free to you (no co-pay/co-insurance).  Your EAP company will educate you about your benefits.  You are responsible to attain authorization prior to coming to your first session (otherwise your authorization may not be activated in time resulting in your having to pay full fee out of pocket).


If you do not know if your work offers an EAP program, please consult with your HR or benefits manager.  It is a great benefit to take advantage of.
