Sessions & Emergencies
Emergencies: We are available to clients in emergency situations. If an emergency occurs, make sure to leave a voicemail message that includes telephone numbers where you can be reached. If you do not reach someone at the practice, call or go to your nearest emergency room.
Telephone Calls: Telephone calls and emails are part of our service to you. However, long phone calls on clinical issues will be billed.
Cancellations: We ask that you give 48 business hours notice for cancellation at no charge. If cancellation is due to illness or last mintue emergency, please discuss the situation with the clinician as soon as possible.
Payment & Insurance
Payment: Payment for a service rendered is due at the time the service is provided. You will receive an emailed invoice for your records. Group psychotherapy is paid on the first day of each month for the month ahead. Assessments are paid in two installments: half at the time of the testing, and the other half upon completion of the test. If charges for treatment present a financial hardship, you are responsible for working out a mutually acceptable written arrangement with the therapist in advance. Scholarships are often available, based on financial need. Approximately 90% of our clients chose to pay with credit cards (Amex and Visa accepted) and about 10% chose to pay with personal checks.
Insurance: While we do not particiapte in pre-approval, because we wish to abstain from membersip on managed care provider lists, we will help you submit forms once payment is rendered in full. We will provide invoices and receipts for your insurance and tax purposes. About 85% of our clients receive insurance reimbursement after payment in full to us at point of service. If you need assistance in paying for therapy we will may be able to subsidize your treatment.
