Good Faith Estimate:
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. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
I am currently in network with Cigna (Evernorth) and Ventura County Medi-Cal (Beacon/Gold Coast)
I also offer superbilling for out-of-network coverage.
What is superbilling?
Superbilling is a form of payment for seeing out-of-network (OON) providers for PPO insurance plans. You pay my full cash fee ($100), I provide you with a receipt ("superbill") for the amount paid, you submit this to your insurance for reimbursement.
Before using superbilling, it is important to call your insurance plan to confirm benefits and coverage (you can call the number on the back of your insurance card). They will inform you of any yearly deductibles to be met, the allowed amount of what insurance will cover per session and what your co-insurance fee will be. Once you meet your deductible (if you have one), your insurance company will mail checks directly to you for reimbursement of fees.
