In good faith, I have set aside time for your appointment. If you do not show up, no one else is able to take advantage of that time, and income is lost. Therefore, if you fail to attend a session without at least 24 hours advance notification, you will be billed for 50% of the cost of the session.
I understand that on occasion there may be an emergency or you may be ill and unable to call 24 hours in advance, and an exception may be made. Please call or have someone else notify us of the situation as soon as you know you will be unable to attend. Text or email notification is acceptable.
Everyone loves financial assistance, but when insurance is involved the provider may become the 'client' and their needs and requirements come before yours. Check your co-pay amount, often we can arrive at a fee that is close to your co-pay if not the same. This is a win-win situation in that you will control your therapy, avoid reports going to your insurance provider, and manage your cost effectively.
As a courtesy to you, I will provide you with a monthly or quarterly receipt for professional services that you can send to your insurance company for reimbursement as an out-of-network provider. NOTE: Be sure to check with your provider to see if they reimburse for out-of-network, and if prior approval is needed. I am happy to review this policy with you at any time.
I tailor my approach and am guided by what is in your best interest as determined by you and me. An insurance company requires confidential information to be shared with them and a pathology label or diagnosis attached to you, which may remain in your file and follow you from job to job. I believe it is important for you to decide what therapy you are comfortable with and when you're ready to bring closure to your sessions, not an insurance company.
