The Advantages of Self-Pay
When you utilize self pay rather than insurance coverage, you are guaranteed a higher level of privacy and choice. Self pay requires no communication to third parties regarding diagnosis, frequency and modality of treatment. You bring whatever issues you want to therapy without fear of repercussions down the road (i.e. eligibility for life insurance coverage, etc.). The more time I can spend on you, the higher quality of care you receive.
Self pay promotes focusing on your strengths and your health rather than the traditional model of focusing on “what is wrong”. The focus is truly on you and your privacy as the client, not to set standards that you and your provider are required to comply with.
Should you want to work with your insurance company to have them reimburse you, I am happy to provide you with a detailed receipt.
Payment is due at the time of your session. I accept cash, check, and all major credit cards as forms of payment.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you will be charged the full rate of $160.00. (In the case of a true emergency this fee will be waived.)
Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 800-985-3059.
