For clients with BCBS: Clients with Blue Cross Blue Shield plans are responsible only for co-pays and deductibles. Payment is due at the time of your meeting.
For clients with insurance other than BCBS: Our services may still be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee-benefit plan. Most PPO and POS plans have "out-of-network" benefits that will cover some percentage of the cost. If you have an HMO from a company other than BCBS, most likely your insurance will not cover our services and you would need to pay directly.
