I am an in-network provider for Regence/Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Oregon, MODA Health, and Aetna. If you have other insurance they may pay for all or part of my services. Please check with your insurance company prior to our first visit.
Prior to your first visit, if you are able to provide your insurance information (see page 2 of the Personal History Form), I may be able to check the limits of your coverage before our first visit.
A note about using insurance. If you want to use an insurance benefit to pay for psychotherapy services, it is helpful to understand what this means.
The most relevant differences between paying “out of pocket”and using insurance are:
I charge $120 per 55 minute meeting, but offer lower rates if paid in full at the time of service or to accommodate your financial circumstances.
Payment (whether co-pay, deductible, or private pay) is expected at the time of service. I accept cash, check, and Visa/Master Card. Please be aware that when my billing person checks your coverage, that information may arrive after our first or second visit. Check your insurance coverage prior to our first visit, to verify your coverage.
Please notify me at least 24 hours prior to canceling an appointment. Without 24 hour notification, you will be charged $40 or ½ your usual fee (whichever is the larger sum) for your missed session. If you are late, your session may be shortened by the amount of time you are late.
If you are a new patient, and have a first appointment already scheduled, please complete the personal history form below, and bring it to our first session.
