WHAT TYPE OF PAYMENT ARE ACCEPTED?
Acceptable methods of payment include cash, check, and credit card.
Full payment is expected when you arrive for your appointment.
ARE YOU IN NETWORK WITH ANY COMMERCIAL INSURERS?
We are an out of network provider with all commercial insurance providers along with Medicaid and Medicare.
We can provide you a detailed invoice (superbill) per request that can be submitted to your insurance company for possible partial or full payment. Our clinic is not responsible for any insurance billing or payment related issues.
IF I HAVE MEDICARE OR MEDICAID, CAN I BE REIMBURSED?
Our clinic has formally opted-out of government managed care programs including Medicare and Medicaid. This means that as a clinic, we will establish a private contract with our patients under Medicare/Medicaid in agreement that services provided by our practitioner are not covered by Medicare and no payment can be made to the physician or practitioner or to beneficiaries. As a patient, you will be charged an agreed fee per clinic rules and you are responsible for full payment in cash to the clinic. This also means that reimbursement forms cannot be filed to Medicare by patient and the patient will not be able to receive any reimbursement. Patients under managed care will have to agree to signing a contract specifying the above terms prior to being seen by our psychiatrist.

DO YOU CHARGE LATE FEES?

Payment is expected on the day of service. Any unpaid due amount is subject to a weekly late fee of $20. Unpaid bills that are pending beyond 6 weeks are sent to collection.
