***Please inquire about our sliding scale
In addition to weekly appointments, I charge these same rates for other professional services you may need, though I will prorate the hourly cost if I work for periods of less than one hour. Other professional services include report writing, telephone conversations lasting longer than 10 minutes, attendance at meetings with other professionals you have authorized, preparation of treatment summaries, and the time spent performing any other service you may request of me. If you become involved in legal proceedings that require my participation, you will be expected to pay for any professional time I spend on your legal matter, even if the request comes from another party.
You will be expected to pay for each session at the time it is held, unless we agree otherwise or unless you have insurance coverage that requires another arrangement. Payment schedules for other professional services will be agreed to when such services are requested.
If you have insurance coverage, please understand that this is a contract between you and your insurance company. As a courtesy to you, we will assist by submitting claims for reimbursement provided that we have all the necessary information. We will also gladly discuss your proposed treatment and answer any questions relating to your insurance. Please know that your insurance is a contract between you, your employer and the insurance company. We are not a party to that contract. If you do not have health insurance, please know that you will be responsible for payment of session at the time of service.
MISSED APPOINTMENTS & CANCELLATION POLICY
Missed appointments are costly in both revenue and lost time. Most importantly, it prevents me from providing services to other patients who otherwise, may desire your designated appointment time slot. Consequently, we respectfully require a 24-hour-notice in the event you cannot keep your appointment. This will allow me time to offer your cancelled time slot to another patient on my wait list. If it is possible, I will try to find another time to reschedule the appointment. A flat fee of $85.00 will be assessed and, DUE at your next scheduled session.
Barring any serious or contagious illness or emergency, this cancellation policy is the standard in medical and mental health fields and will be strictly enforced.
For cancellations, please call 808-486-4900 at any time. Our confidential answering machine is available during after-hours to take any messages.
