+ WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW IF I USE INSURANCE?

When deciding to use your insurance, please keep the following in mind:

Insurance companies cover services that are deemed "medically necessary"

Insurance companies can determine the number of sessions a client can receive, how frequent sessions can be held, the format of sessions and at times require documentation from your case file. This means your personal information may not be kept private and others may view your information. Some insurance companies may share your personal information with other companies which could affect your ability to obtain coverage in the future and could also affect the rates you pay for coverage.

+ WHAT'S THE CANCELLATION POLICY?

Your appointment time is reserved especially for you. If you are not able to attend your appointment, a 24-hour notice is required for all cancellations. This will allow other clients to receive services. If a 24-hour notice is not given, a fee of $40 will be charged for the missed appointment and will be due at the beginning of the next session. Since there are times when emergencies arise and 24-hour notice is not possible, I allow for one missed session without charge. All sessions after the missed session will incur a fee. Insurance companies do not pay for missed appointments; therefore this charge will be the client or guardian’s responsibility. Failure to give adequate notice more than three times may result in care being terminated.
