Insurance and Reimbursement

I am an “in network” provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBS). I will collect your co-pay at the time of service, and bill BCBS directly for the balance due. There are a variety of plans, and plan details frequently change. It is your responsibility to keep abreast of exactly what BCBS covers, and to alert me to any changes in coverage.

I am an “out of network” provider for all other managed healthcare plans. Most plans limit mental health coverage, the types of treatment that are reimbursable, and often dictate length of treatment. This limits my ability to practice in an effective and ethical manner under insurance providers. You should review your plan details and/or call your plan administrator to see whether my services will be covered for reimbursement purposes. Plans frequently change, and it is your responsibility to be aware of your insurance coverage.

With the exception of BCBS, I do not file insurance. I will provide a detailed receipt which may aid in your reimbursement. Also, if requested, I can assist in helping you receive the benefits to which you are entitled.

You may also opt to pay for my services out of pocket, and not file an insurance claim. You can avoid insurance restrictions as well as provide an added measure of privacy with your employer and your insurance provider. It may also lessen the concern about future health or life insurance coverage and/or rate changes.
