The only way out is through
My hourly rate is $140.00. I am on the provider panels for Aetna, Anthem Blue Shield (not Blue Shield of California) and Cencal.
Some insurance plans will provide reimbursement directly to patients for mental health services rendered by out-of-network providers and paid for by the patient . I will be pleased to provide a SuperBill with all information necessary for those wishing to obtain reimbursement from their insurance company for covered services.
Good Faith Estimate Notice
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
