Insurance

The insurance industry has made it extremely difficult for psychiatry providers to work within their systems.  As a result of this many of us in mental health have had to move to an alternative approach to payment for services. In my practice, I collect the full fee from the patient directly.  I provide an itemized receipt to my patients for submission to their insurance company.  Many insurance companies reimburse the policy holder 50-90% of the cost of the appointment.  Sometimes in as little as 2 weeks.

 

Although inconvenient for the policy holder, this practice creates an environment where it is possible to see an established patient for 20-25 minutes and new patients 50-60 minutes. The increased face to face time allows patients to take an active approach to their treatment plan and ultimately improves results.  Additionally, by limiting the number of patients I schedule an hour, I am able to stick to your appointment time.  Your time is as valuable as mine. I rarely run even 5 minutes late for an appointment unless there is a rare emergency.

 

It is very important that you check directly with your insurance carrier to determine the amount of the appointment fee you will be reimbursed.
