Fees, Billing, and Hours

The fee for a 50 minute session is $125.00, and if you plan to use insurance, this is what will be billed to them, while the actual payment would be determined by your insurance plan.  Extended sessions are billed at $150.00, but this doesn’t change your our of pocket fees or co-pays.  Typically I would ask that fees, co-pays and deductible balances be paid at the time of each appointment, unless other arrangements have been made.

Please note:  There is a 24 hour cancellation policy.  If I am not notified of your inability to make a scheduled appointment 24 hours prior to the appointment, the full session fee will be billed directly to you (insurance companies cannot be billed for missed appointments).  ** Not having received an e-mail reminder from Genbook for whatever reason, will not waive this cancellation fee.  The e-mail reminders are an additional perk of the online scheduling, however, you are still responsible for managing your own time & appointments.

Insurance:

I am a provider for Medicaid, Cigna, BCBS, MVP, Value Options, and AETNA.  If you have some other insurance not listed here, you can contact your insurance company directly to see if I can take payment from them, depending on your benefit plan.  If you do not have insurance or would prefer not to use your insurance, I’d be happy to discuss a sliding fee with you.

Billing:

I have a professional medical biller who does insurance and private bill processing, Karolyn Micheels of Claims Connection, and she can answer any questions related to insurance and billing.  She works across the lake in Plattsburgh, NY and is under the same professional standards and rules related to confidentiality and HIPAA.  Karolyn takes care of sending out invoices for co-payments/deductibles and sends claims to insurance companies.  If you have any questions about your insurance, you can contact her directly at: 1-800-775-1585.

Hours and Online Scheduling:

Currently I am in the office Monday through Thursday.  The first available session time is at 10:00am and the last available session at 6:00pm.

If you are seeking a first appointment as a new client, let’s have a quick phone conversation first to make sure of schedule/availability and other potential issues.  If you are an established client and would like to make an appointment, please go to my online scheduler by clicking on the “Book now” button on the right side of each page of this website.  This will take you to the Genbook professional scheduler and then through each step of scheduling your appointment.  Genbook will confirm the appointment time you have chosen during this process, and will then send you e-mail reminders** to the address you’ve provided them, usually the day before the appointment.  (this professional scheduler is completely HIPAA compliant, and has been vetted for security & privacy).
