HOW DO I USE OUT-OF-NETWORK INSURANCE?

Depending on your health insurance plan, you may have out-of-network benefits. This simply means that you will pay the full fee for our sessions at the time of service, and then you are able to submit documentation to your insurance company directly for possible reimbursement. I can provide the you with a superbill that you can submit to your insurance directly. You may want to contact your health insurance plan in advance to determine if you have out-of-network benefits before scheduling.

  • The Good Faith Estimate is to be provided in writing at least 1 business day before you receive services. You can also request a Good Faith Estimate before scheduling an appointment.

  • If you receive a bill over $400 above the Good Faith Estimate, you can formally dispute the bill.
