Please let us know if you have any financial concerns. We will try our best to work with your finances and suggest services accordingly. If for some reason we cannot accommodate you, we will do our very best to help you find the right services.
We are not directly contracted with any insurance companies. Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible that you may be reimbursed for therapy services in full or in part. After each session, you’ll be provided with a statement for insurance reimbursement.You can submit this to your insurance company along with their medical claim form. If you have out-of-network benefits, your insurance company may reimburse you directly for whatever amount they agree to pay after you meet your deductible.
Services provided by a Resident in Psychology may or may not be reimbursed by your insurance company. We cannot make any guarantees about reimbursement.
QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY
How do I know what my benefits are? How do I find out if I will get reimbursed?
We recommend having the following conversation with your insurance company:
“Hello, I’m planning to see a psychologist (or dietitian) who does not take my insurance. Would I be eligible for reimbursement for these sessions through any out-of-network benefits I might have with my plan?”
If yes, ask the following questions:
- How much is my out-of-network deductible?
- How much of that deductible have I already met?
- After meeting my deductible, what percentage of my session fees will you pay if the fee is $185? If the fee is $200?
- Where can I find the out-of-network claims form?
- Where do I send the claim form when I complete it?
The app that takes care of getting reimbursement for you!
Working with insurance companies to get reimbursed for your sessions can be a daunting and confusing process! There’s an app that will take care of it all for you: https://www.getbetter.co
Better is an app where you can take a picture of your insurance card, take a picture of your insurance reimbursement statement or email them your statements, and they will take care of the rest! They’ll go back and forth with your insurance company to find out why they might have denied your claims, contact your provider if the insurance company needs follow-up information, and keep you posted along the way.
For any money you get reimbursed, you get 90% of it. If your claim is denied or your session fees are counted towards your deductible, then the app is free of charge to use!
Can I use my HSA card?
The answer is often, yes. However, you may want to double check with your HSA plan to see if they will cover these services. Please contact your insurance company to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.
Payment for the full session is expected at the time of the appointment. Cash and checks are preferred, but we do accept HSA credit and debit cards along with other major credit cards as forms of payment.
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.
