Services may be covered in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking your insurance company the following questions:
- Do I have mental health or behavioral health insurance benefits?
- What is my deductible, and does it apply? If so, has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the co-payment and co-insurance that I pay per session?
Reduced fee, sliding-scale services are not currently available.
Cash and check are normal means of payment. However, during the Coronavirus pandemic, you pay by check mailed to my post office box or by credit card through PayPal.
If you do not attend your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified me at least one day in advance, you may be required to pay a missed-appointment fee, currently set at $60.00. Insurances typically do not cover a missed-appointment fee.
Please contact me at 559-909-0853 for further information.
Good Faith Estimate Notice
This Notice fulfills requirements of the federal “No Surprises Act,” effective 1/1/2022, for health care providers to inform their uninsured and private pay patients that they have a right to a “Good Faith Estimate” to help them estimate the expected charges they may be billed.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health 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 expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a 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.
