Many of our clients submit their own insurance claims for services. We provide the necessary receipts with all the appropriate insurance codes and, even though we are out of network, some insurance policies include out-of-network benefits.
The out of network benefits for some policies are excellent and others are not. You can find out about your policy's out of network benefits by calling the customer service phone number which is usually found on the back of your insurance card. Ask them what your out-of-network benefits are for outpatient mental health care with an LPC.
Be sure to ask about your deductible and about allowable amounts for individual or conjoint/family psychotherapy services.
We will help you in anyway we can.
Whether requested via phone, email, fax, or any other form of communication, at no time will information of a client be provided to anybody other than the client without a signed "Release of Information" contract from the client for the entity requesting information. Shellie will be asking for your release of information to speak to any other medical or mental health professionals who work with you in order to provide effective and ethical care.
If you wish to have information shared with a family member or another professional, be sure to request the "Release of Information" forms.
Regarding Counseling Services
for rates for consultation, presentations, or other services.
We require at least 24 hours notice before the time of an appointment for cancellations so that the time slot can be opened to other clients on our waiting list. If you fail to provide this notice, you will be charged for the full cost of the cancelled session. Exceptions may be made in extreme emergencies.
If you need to cancel an appointment, please give us as much notice as you can. On weekends or after hours you can cancel an appointment by leaving a voicemail message on the office phone (540-868-9000).
Please note that insurance companies will not reimburse you for cancellation fees.
