Do you take insurance?
I participate with (accept) several, but not all insurance plans. If I participate with your insurance, this means that I agree to accept, as payment in full, the amount which your insurance company pays for a particular service (psychotherapy, testing, etc.). You will still be financially responsible for any applicable copays, coinsurance, or deductibles. Copays, coinsurance and deductibles are due at the time services are provided. The best way to determine if I participate with your insurance (and what, if any, financial responsibility you may have) is to call your insurance company before our first meeting. As of 1/24/23, I participate with the following insurances: Medicare, Medicaid, Highmark NENY, CDPHP (including CDPHP managed Medicaid), MVP, Empire BC (I do not participate with Anthem plans under Empire BC) and Optum. Also, it is important to understand that, in order for your insurance to pay for services that I provide, they must be considered medically (psychologically) necessary. Of note, if I am out-of-network with your insurance, it still may be possible to get your insurance to cover some services (all or in part); I would be happy to discuss this further with you.
