Insurance

Please be aware that I do not contract with any insurance companies (in other words, I am not an in-network provider) and therefore, if you plan on using your insurance to cover psychotherapy sessions, please make sure you have a PPO or POS plan with your insurance carrier  (BCBS, AETNA, HARVARD PILGRIM, TUFTS, CIGNA etc.). I am not an HMO provider.

If you have a PPO or POS plan, your health insurance policy should partially or fully reimburse the services of an out-of-network licensed psychologist. Please call your insurance to find out what specific plan you have and ask them where you should send the receipt I will give you so your insurance can reimburse you directly.  You will be paying me directly (I accept checks or cash) and I will provide you with a receipt that you submit to your insurance.
When you call your insurance, I encourage you to ask the following questions:
-         Do I have out-of-network mental health coverage? Is my plan a PPO plan?
-         Is there a deductible?
-         What is my co-payment/co-insurance?
-         How many sessions per year do I have?
-         Do I need a pre-authorization or referral?
