I am happy to bill your insurance provider for you.
I am an in network provider for Premera, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Optum, United, Cigna
and First Choice Health
Although I am in the process of contracting with several other insurance providers, I cannot ensure any other “in network” status with other insurance carriers at this time. I am able to bill your insurance as an "out of network" provider if needed. Please contact your insurance company with questions regarding reimbursement rates, co-pays, and deductibles for “out of network” services.
I accept private pay for individuals who choose to pay out of pocket for services and/or not bill insurance.
The "No Surprises Act" Enacted January 1st, 2022:
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate”
explaining how much your medical care will cost
Under the law, healthcare providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non
emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
• Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1
business day before your medical service. You can also ask your healthcare provider,
and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate
before you schedule an item or service.
• If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
• Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call my office at: 907-342-9007
My recommendations for the duration of treatment and session frequency are determined by a reduction in your distress/symptoms and treatment plan progress which will be continually assessed over the course of our work together. It is my best estimate that we would be initially meeting 1x weekly for 60 minute psychotherapy sessions for the first 90 days at which time we will review your treatment plan and determine if you need ongoing weekly, bi-weekly,monthly or "as needed" treatment. You may choose to discontinue treatment at any time for any reason.
Estimated Out of Pocket Costs:
Each 60 minute psychotherapy session is $180 a session
4 x monthly = $720
3 months = $2160
Should my assessment of your treatment plan progress warrant treatment for the full upcoming calendar year, weekly therapy sessions, at $180 per 60 minute session for a total of 48 weeks, accounting for vacations and holidays, accrue to an estimated total of:
$180 x 48 =$8,640.
If your treatment duration is longer than one year, a new GFE document will be furnished at the start of each calendar year (every 12 months).
