Insurance

I currently participate in-network with the following providers: Carolinas Behavioral Health Alliance (CBHA); Blue Cross and Blue Shield (PPO and indemnity plans only as well as Blue Home, I am not a Blue Value or Blue Local provider)

Please note that you are responsible for calling your insurance company to understand your mental health benefits and will be responsible for the full fee of any service provided that is not covered by your insurance. You are responsible for paying any deductible, co-payment or co-insurance at the time of service. You are also responsible for obtaining any required pre-authorization for services and bringing the documentation to your first session. In addition, many insurance carriers offer out-of-network (OON) benefits. I am glad to assist with paperwork for OON claims and/or file a claim for you as a courtesy if my EHR is compatible, but you are responsible for knowing what your coverage is. In the case of OON coverage, you are responsible for paying the full fee at the time of service.

 

Good Faith Estimate

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges. You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE) explaining how much your medical 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 bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a GFE for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a GFE in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a GFE before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your GFE, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your GFE.
