INSURANCE: I have taken myself off all HMO and health insurance panels.
HOWEVER, IF YOU HAVE A PPO PLAN, you may be able to be reimbursed for a portion of each session. After you pay me at the time of our meeting, if you have Out-of-Network benefit on your insurance plan, I'm happy to provide you with codes and receipts to get the reimbursement rolling. Please ask your insurance company for the details of your 'out-of-network' benefit & let me know in our initial contact if you will need receipts or codes to send them & claim reimbursement.
Acceptable forms of payment are: check, cash, *Venmo, *Paypal and credit cards, to be received at the time of the services. A 3% surcharge will be added for Square Up credit card payments.
