Some clients may have insurance. I am an in-network provider for: Tricare, Blue Cross & Blue Shield (except BlueValue and BlueLocal), Cigna, and Aetna! I also deal with EAP’s and can take HSA or FSA cards as payment! For other insurances for which I am out-of-network, I currently do not submit claims for them so the client will be expected to pay for the service rendered and then be provided with an invoice that they can use to request retroactive reimbursement from their insurance company.
The fees for my services are listed below and are due in full at the time of service.
Contract Rates: Individual Therapy
*additional $5 charge for credit
For clients who feel they would qualify, there is a sliding scale. Please see the one listed below and it will be used to determine what percentage of the normal fee you would be responsible to pay. Cash, credit, or local checks will be accepted for fees or co-pays.
Sliding-Scale Fee Schedule
Confidentiality is an important aspect of counseling and therapy and the information discussed within sessions will be kept between the counselor and the client. The client’s written permission is required before any such information, or even acknowledgement of services, can be shared with an outside party (i.e. family member, friend, etc.). There are three exceptions which would REQUIRE the release of information by the counselor: 1) if the client plans to hurt him/herself or threatens to cause serious harm to someone else, 2) if the client discloses knowledge of a minor child or an adult who is being hurt, or 3) a court order is issued pertaining to the release of certain information about the client and his/her sessions. In addition, under current laws in North Carolina state that mental health providers may share client information with other mental health providers without obtaining the client’s written consent when it is necessary to coordinate care and treatment and to obtain funding for the client’s care.
Please feel free to address any concerns or complaints with me in person during the counseling session. You may also contact the board for LPC’s. Their information is listed below.
