must be the one to raise your sail.
Payment and Insurance
At this time, the only insurance companies I bill directly are PacificSource and Kaiser.
I also work with many clients who have other insurance plans and who request reimbursement for out-of-network services. Not all plans offer this option; if you are uncertain about yours, I recommend you contact your insurance company directly and ask the following questions:
•Does my plan have an out-of-network option for outpatient mental health?
•If it does, is there a separate deductable?
•If no deductable, what percentage of out-of-network costs does my plan cover?
•Is there any pre-authorization required for out-of- network services?
Out of network clients may pay the discounted self-pay rate and then seek reimbursement from their insurance company. I will be happy to provide any documentation of services and payments which may be required.
All fees or co-pays are due at the time of service. Payment may be made by cash, check, credit card, Vemmo or PayPal. Credit cards will be charged an additional $1.00 per transaction to cover part of the cost of providing this service.
Standard rates apply when fees are billed to insurance or to a client for later payment. Self-pay rates apply when clients pay in full at the time of service, and no billing is required.

In special situations, exceptions to the fee policy and rates may be negotiated. Please let me know if you have circumstances that create a hardship.
