Health Insurance

I do not bill insurance companies directly, and am not contracted with any insurance company. I am an "out of network" provider for nearly all local insurance companies. I will ask that you pay for services at the time that we meet, and provide you with a detailed receipt so that you can request reimbursement from your health insurance company. 

Many health insurance plans, especially PPO plans, will reimburse you for payments to me. I urge you to contact your health insurance company, using the phone number on the back of your insurance card, to determine the eligibility, requirements, and limits for reimbursement. If you do not have out of network benefits, you may be able to attain authorization for out of network coverage from your insurance provider. This is most likely if time is of the essence, and if your child or teen requires my particular expertise.

Numbers that your insurance company may request to determine benefits:
