I offer a free 15-minute consultation (either on the phone or in my office), so you can get a sense of whether we have a good match. It is also an opportunity for me to decide whether or not I will be able to help you.
Rates & Insurance
My services are $150 per session (unless we have made another arrangement). A sliding fee scale may be extended to you if you are uninsured and can show financial hardship. Typical session length is 50 minutes. I am an in-network provider for many private insurance carriers including Anthem Blue Cross / Blue Shield, Aetna, Medicaid, Amerigroup, CareSource, Peach State, Wellcare and Medicare Part B. I am also a provider for Tricare Select and Tricare for Life. I bill these companies directly, and this contracted amount may be different than my standard rate.
If you have a form of insurance that I am contracted with, I will verify the specifics of your eligibility and benefits myself prior to our first appointment, saving you the trouble of making the call. This verification will provide me with information such as deductible amount, session limits, and whether or not therapy is a covered service. You may choose to call yourself also, if you would feel more comfortable learning about your benefits before we get started. Deductibles, co-pays and co-insurance amounts are due at the time of session.
Ultimately, your health care costs are your responsibility. Be an informed consumer. And please remember: If there is any other way I can assist you in navigating this process, please don’t hesitate to ask. I will attempt to help in any way I can.
If you provide less than 24 hours’ notice of cancellation for a scheduled session, you will be charged IN FULL for that session. Insurance companies will not typically reimburse for this cost, which means you will be responsible for the full fee, and not just a co-pay amount. You are likewise responsible for any denied insurance claims, and for informing me of changes to your insurance.
Fees are due at the time of service. For your convenience, I accept cash, personal checks, credit cards, Cash App (tag $AscensionTW), and HSA/FSA accounts. I also accept payment via PayPal, or I can store your card information securely in the client portal.
