How does payment work at your practice?

We are in network with most major insurance companies and submit claims after services are rendered. During the initial intake, we will collect your insurance information and verify benefits, however, we can not guarantee coverage of services, and you may be subject to a co-pay or deductible.

If we are not in-network with your insurance carrier we do accept out-of-network (PPO) insurance and can provide you with a "superbill" to submit to your insurance company in order for you to be reimbursed for your out-of-pocket payments.

We also accept clients who wish to pay for services out of pocket which can be a benefit for some who wish to keep their protected health information private.
