Frequently Asked Questions
How do we pay?
Fees are paid in full at the time of service. Payment is accepted in the form of cash, check, or credit card (Visa & MasterCard). As a healthcare provider, we accept Health Savings Account (HSA) and Flexible Spending Account (FSA).
Do you contract with insurance companies?
We are committed to you & your family’s privacy, their confidentiality, and want you to have complete control over their health records. Submitting a mental health invoice for reimbursement carries a certain amount of risk to your confidentiality, privacy and future capacity to obtain health or life insurance or even a job. That is why we caution people to consider their risk to privacy prior to billing insurance for mental health services.
We are in-network with BCBS PPO insurance plans and our office bills these plans directly to the insurance. You would simply be responsible for any co-pay or unpaid services.
We can, upon request, provide you with receipts and a coded visit bill (called “super bills”) which you may submit to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement if you choose. We encourage you to check with your insurance regarding the specifics of your policy.

What about a sliding fee scale?
We do offer a sliding fee scale based on family income and circumstances, which we will be happy to talk to you about when you give us a call.
