You will be expected to pay for each session at the time it is held, unless we agree on another arrangement. Payment schedules for other professional services will be agreed to when they are requested. In circumstances of unusual financial hardship, I may be willing to negotiate a fee adjustment or payment installment plan.
If your account has not been paid for more than 60 days and arrangements for payment have not been agreed upon, I have the option of using legal means to secure the payment. This may involve hiring a collection agency or going through small claims court which will require me to disclose otherwise confidential information. In most collection situations, the only information I release regarding a client’s treatment is his/her name, the nature of services provided, and the amount due. If such legal action is necessary, its costs will be included in the claim.
HEALTH INSURANCE PLANS
I am not a provider on any managed care health plans and therefore do not accept health insurance as a means of payment. All session fees are paid for "out-of-pocket" by clients at the time of treatment.
In order for us to set realistic treatment goals and priorities, it is important to evaluate what resources you have available to pay for your treatment.
