If you use different health insurance, then it may cover my services as an out-of-network provider. Please check whether this is the case with your health-insurance provider.

It may be helpful for you to check whether your health-insurance provider requires preapproval for the services you need; for example, some insurance providers require preapproval for psychotherapy or psychological testing.

I expect payment of the agreed-upon fee at the time services are provided. Importantly, I agree to complete any paperwork that your insurance provider requires; I will also issue a receipt. For out-of network services, I will complete the paperwork but in some cases you may need to file it yourself.

Clients who do not plan to use health insurance may want to know the following. I may contract fees on an individual basis, taking the client's financial situation into account. Please call to ask about my fees and policies.

I do not work with Apple Health, Molina, or other managed Medicaid plans. Once or twice per year, I may offer a pro bono evaluation or assessment to a Medicaid or an uninsured patient (usually for health-related purposes only).
