Insurance Details

  • INSURANCE: I accept HUSKY but I am considered “out of network” for other insurance companies, so they will not pay me directly, which means you will likely have to pay my full fee, not a copay.
  • REIMBURSEMENT: Most insurance plans will partly reimburse you for payments you make to out-of-network providers like myself, but you will have to submit forms to them after you pay for services.
  • FORMS: Please tell me if you plan to submit for reimbursement because your insurance company will require more detailed information than found on a normal receipt. I do not directly interact or correspond with insurance companies, nor do I accept payments from them. But, I will provide you with forms containing all the necessary information for you to quickly and easily submit to get reimbursed.
  • HSA & FSA OK: I accept payments from Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flex Spending Account (FSA) because they are technically your accounts, not managed by insurance companies.

Appointment Details

  • LENGTH: Typical sessions last 45-55 minutes.
  • WHEN: Monday-Friday my first session is at 11 am and my last is at 7:30. My evening times fill up very quickly, so I’d prefer to arrange daytime appointments if possible. I do not work on weekends.
  • SCHEDULING: Schedule your appointments with me personally, either one appointment at a time or a recurring appointment at the same time each week (or every other week).
  • FREQUENCY: It’s most beneficial to begin with weekly appointments, then spread them out to every 2 weeks or monthly as you’re improving. But the choice is yours.
  • RESCHEDULE & CANCELLATION: You can reschedule or cancel at any time, just be sure to notify me (either phone, email, or text) at least 8 hours before your scheduled appointment.
  • NO-SHOWS: If you miss an appointment and don’t notify me at least 8 hrs in advance, it’s considered a “no-show”. I’ll let the first one slide, but thereafter you’ll be charged for a full session (for my time).
