I currently accept insurance at this time. It is your responsibility to check with your insurance if you are covered for mental health benefits and if you have met deductibles and out of pocket. Co-Payments and fees will be due at the beginning of each session. I accept the following insurances:
Anthem Blue Cross Medi Cal
Tricare, Tricare West
Blue Shield of CA
United Behavioral Health
Single Case Agreements with Curalinc & Halcyon
I am an out-of-network provider for all other insurances. This means that you will pay me at each session and I can provide you with a special receipt called a “Superbill” that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. It is your responsibility to check with your insurance to see if you have out of network reimbursement.
Benefits of Receiving Counseling Without Insurance
There are benefits to receive counseling without insurance. One benefit is that I will not have to give you a diagnosis. There will be no paper trail with your insurance to identify you with a mental health disorder. You won’t have to worry about having a mental health diagnosis impacting future employment or life insurance. Insurance can place limitations on the frequency and duration of services and private pay does not have these limitations.
I accept cash, check and all major credit cards as forms of payment. Payment is due in full at the beginning of each session. I do request that a credit card be kept on file with me for fees, cancellations without 24-hour notice, no show/no call to scheduled appointments, and co-payments.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session. If you are a no call/no show to scheduled appointments you will be charged my current rate for a session.
