Questions About Your Bill
What billing or insurance information will I receive?
You will receive a copy of the services provided and the fee for each. Depending on what specific arrangements we make you might also receive a monthly statement of your account.
How long will it take to get things settled with the insurance company?
Generally, it takes from 15 to 30 days to obtain payment from an insurance carrier. Times vary according to plans and circumstances.
What will I be billed for?
I bill for psychotherapy at $175/hour after an initial intake session for $300. Longer sessions are possible, up to 90 minutes, with advance notice, though longer sessions are usually not covered by insurance. Crisis sessions are billed differently, and must meet specific criteria to be reimbursed by your insurance company. I will also charge for my time to complete forms or prepare reports depending on the complexity and time required.
I received a notice that my insurance company has paid on my bill -- but I can't understand how they calculated their payment amount. Do you know?
If I receive such information from your insurance company, I'll be glad to share it with you. I can also explain what some of the information means. However, for the best answers to any questions about insurance payments, deductibles, or co-payments, you generally need to check with your insurance company.
