DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE
I currently accept Aetna and Optum and HSA.
I am an out-of-network provider for other insurance companies.
Many patients have "out-of-network" insurance coverage and most sessions are usually covered at a percentage of what is "reasonable and customary" in their geographical area, based on your individual plan. In order to do take advantage of this coverage, you pay for each visit out-of-pocket, and then file for reimbursement directly with your insurance company. I will provide the necessary documentation so that you are able to file with your insurance company for direct reimbursement.
You may wish to contact your insurance company prior to engaging in therapy to determine what the “out-of-network coverage” may be as well as their rate of reimbursement. Please be sure to inform them that you intend to see a licensed mental health counselor in Jacksonville, FL. You may also want to provide your insurance carrier with the correct procedure code for this service (for ex., 90834 is typical for a 45-minute individual therapy session).
CAN YOU PRESCRIBE MEDICATION?
As a LMHC, I am not able to prescribe medication. I can, however provide referral to psychiatrists in the area.
WHAT DO I NEED FOR MY FIRST APPOINTMENT?
Consents will need to be completed and returned. You can print and sign and send to my e-mail or send to me via mail prior to the session or 15 minutes before session begins. I will also need a copy of your ID and insurance card (if applicable).
HOW LONG DOES COUNSELING TYPICALLY LAST?
This will vary depending on presenting concerns, level of participation, and other factors. Therapy can last as little as 3 months to years.
CAN I BOOK AN INTAKE SESSION?
Yes, please contact me via my phone at 305-792-8560 or my e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up a phone consultation to discuss setting up an intake session. E-mail is generally the best way to contact me. I offer 15 minute complimentary consultation sessions for us to get to know each other prior to booking an appointment so we know that we are a good fit.
HOW CAN I BEGIN COUNSELING?
I am excited that meet with you and look at how we can work together! First call me at 305-792-8560 or send me an e-mail at email@example.com and we can discuss what you are looking for and whether I will be the best fit for you or if not will send you a referral. From there I will direct you to completing intake forms and schedule a first session.
