Our fees are determined from regular evaluation of local LMHC’s doing similar work, ranging from $220 (50 minutes) to $300 (70 minutes). Please discuss fees with before making an appointment. Credit cards are kept on file for all. Cash and local checks are welcome.
We choose not to accept insurance in order to guard our client’s confidentiality and maintain full control of the course of the work. If appropriate, you are welcome to seek out-of-network reimbursement from your insurance provider by requesting coded receipts.
We are not contractually related to any insurance company. We operate a completely self pay service. Some of our patients have insurance plans that vary greatly, some of which accept claims for out of network services. We are “out of network”. That means we are not “in network” with anyone.
When our patients request a receipt or a super-bill, we provide our national provider identification number NPI1184890188. Our license number Fla MH9306. And our address along with the amounts paid and the date that they were paid on. We will also supply a written (not numerical) diagnosis. Usually it will be something like generalized anxiety disorder or depression. It is up to you and your insurance company to assign the exact numerical diagnostic code. Those codes change and vary over the years and we do not track them. They are somewhat like the old Dewey decimal system… Difficult and not something we can help you with. Let us know in session if you’re going to need signed paper receipts for which there may be a minimal administrative fee.
Each and every appointment is very important to us, as such, we reserve individual sessions with great care and consideration. If for any reason you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified us at least 48 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session as booked. Please understand that late cancellation fees apply to all but dire emergencies.
