My fee is $130/ 45 minute session and I can reduce my fee if needed. Your first (Intake) session is $160 and lasts 60+ minutes.
I expect payment and co-payments at each visit, by cash, check or credit card.I use IvyPay to process and keep your card information. IvyPay is a HIPPA-compliant.
I accept some health insurance plans, but it is your responsibility to provide my biller, Ms. Flo Murray of FloMurray@hushmail.com, with your insurance information (see below at Forms: New Clients and Insurance). Ms. Murray will check with your provider to be sure of your deductible, co-payment amount or co-insurance amount, any need for an authorization before we meet, and how many sessions are approved.
You must bring your insurance card if you have not given information to my biller. I can accept:
Medicare (part B). Note: I cannot take Medicaid, and cannot see you and charge you off- plan; it is illegal.
Rocky Mountain Health Plans
United Health Care and United Behavioral Health
Note: Insurance routinely pays for a 45-50 minute session, and requires me to tell them your “diagnosis.” You and I can arrange for longer sessions if you prefer, with the cost difference being “out of pocket” if insurance does not cover this.
Insurance does not pay for extended case management I perform on your behalf, including letters, consultations with your other providers or my appearance at court. You will be charged for my time for these and crisis phone calls over ten minutes, and for missed appointments and those cancelled too late for me to fill— I need at least 24 hours’ notice. Exceptions are made for illness, bad weather, and rare work obligations.
HIPAA–Health Information Portability and Accountability Act
FYI:This Act instructs all health care providers to do our utmost to protect your health information from improper disclosure. Even prior to HIPAA, Psychotherapists have always practiced the principle of confidentiality, including safeguards such as keeping patient files locked away, keeping therapy notes apart from routine record keeping, using fake names when discussing your case with colleagues, and refusing to share information about you without your written consent (except in certain situations or emergencies). You may revoke your consent in writing. You may review your file with your therapist.
We will need to use our limited session time to complete these if not done ahead of time. Once you and I have decided to meet for an appointment, you may access my Client Portal to review forms and schedule appointments. You will need an access code that I will email.
