I am currently a provider for BCBS PPO plans. Clients are responsible for contacting BCBS regarding their benefit information.
Please inquire about your insurance coverage prior to the first session.
Most PPO plans have a deductible amount that must be met before your benefits begin to take effect. These start over as of the first of the year. If you have a deductible I will collect the allowed amount insurance reimburses ($98 for PPO plans) and file the claim towards meeting your deductible. If you do not have a deductible or it’s been met, you will pay a co-pay at our session. That amount varies depending on your plan’s policy. Please call BCBS to find out your co-pay amount. The information on the card is often not clear.
Please bring your card to the appointment with you. *If you do not have your card or have not contacted BCBS about your coverage, the fee will be $150.* Once you obtain your insurance coverage information, I can begin filing for our sessions.
If I am not a provider with your insurance carrier, please call them to inquire about your out-of-network benefits. Using your out-of-network benefits means you will pay me full fee and then be reimbursed for a portion of that fee depending on your coverage. I will provide a form with all the necessary information your insurance company will need to apply the reimbursement amount directly to you. Out-of-network benefits vary. Please contact Member Services to find out what your specific plan covers.
Tele Mental Health
I offer this as alternative to meeting in the office when an established client is not able to meet in person.
I use Zoom for Tele Mental Health sessions. Zoom is HIPPA compliant
If you are a client out of the state of Georgia, I cannot file insurance for Tele Mental Health sessions. All sessions will be $150.
