Insurance and Payment
The physicians are on many of the major insurance plans. However, you will need to contact your carrier to verify if our doctors are in your insurance network and if you have mental health benefits. We will file your insurance for you if we are a participating provider of your plan.
All co-payments for patients with insurance and payments for services for patients without health insurance or mental health benefits are due at the time of service. As a courtesy to you, we will call your insurance company to obtain your mental health benefits and prior authorization if needed. This does not guarantee payment from your insurance company.
Please remember to bring your insurance card and identification with you when you come for your appointment with one of our doctors.
