Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.
I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
- Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
- Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
- Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
- Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
Co-pays & Co-insurance Payment Policy
Please note that clients may be responsible for a co-pay or co-insurance for each of our sessions. Visionary Mental Health Services, LLC advises you to contact your health insurance provider prior to our first session to determine what your benefits are. Please note that you will be responsible for any portion of the fee for services that your insurance does not cover. Clients are encouraged to make their co-pays at every session or set up a payment plan to be billed monthly for their co-pays.
To reduce collection efforts, it is the policy of VMHS, LLC to obtain and maintain a valid debit/credit of Health Savings Account card on file for every client. Please review the Financial Policy form listed on the “Forms” page for more information. I accept cash, check, and all major credit cards as forms of payment. I also accept payment via PayPal and you can pay directly on my site on this page. VMHS, LLC also accepts HSA accounts as a way to pay for therapy. Clients who are utilizing the sliding fee scale are not required to maintain a valid credit/debit card on file for payment.
A therapy appointment is a time that is specifically allotted just for you. Visionary Mental Health Services, LLC requests 24 hours’ notice of the cancellation of any appointment. If a client no-shows or cancels an appointment at the last minute, VMHS, LLC cannot fill that spot with another client. Due to an appointment being reserved for you and that it cannot be filled, should a last-minute cancellation or no show occur, you will be billed $65 for the missed appointment time.
Please note that this fee is NOT billable to insurance and that you will be responsible for the bill. VMHS, LLC understands that emergencies and illnesses do occur, and some exceptions may be made for these events.
Clients utilizing the sliding fee scale for services are not subject to the cancellation fee policy and will not be charged for no-shows or last-minute cancellations.
Please review the VMHS, LLC cancellation policy for more information.
