Fees and Insurance
I work directly with the insurance companies listed below. I will contact your insurance company to authorize or certify your benefits. Please make sure you read your insurance policy carefully and contact your insurance company as well so you can be informed about your benefits and deductibles.
You are expected to meet your deductibles and co-payments by cash or check at the time of service, unless special needs and arrangements have been previously discussed. I am open to discussing payment options that are fair to me as well as my clients. A $25.00 fee will be charged for returned checks.
