Fees and Insurance

Fees
Clients pay the full fee for service at the time of the appointment. This fee is $225.00 per therapy hour for individual sessions. The typical therapy hour consists of 45-50 minutes. Major credit cards are accepted as form of payment. A Health Savings Account (HSA) or Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) may also be used but the client should verify with their HSA or FSA that visits with a psychologist are a covered medical expense prior to using this as a form of payment.

Insurance
Dr. Siebern is an out-of-network provider for all private insurance plans and is not a participating provider with Medicare. Medicare does not provide reimbursement to the client for treatment received from a non-participating provider. The amount of reimbursement the client will receive from their insurance company depends on the reimbursement policy for their individual insurance plan for out-of-network providers, deductibles, and co-insurance. Clients are encouraged to check with their insurance plan regarding out-of-network coverage of services prior to their visit.

As a courtesy to clients, insurance claims can be electronically filed for most private insurance (excluding Medicare). Not all insurance companies allow electronic filing, in which case the client will be provided with the paperwork needed to submit to their insurance company.

Cancellation and No Show Policy
A specific appointment time is reserved for the client, which is an important part of the client’s treatment plan. It is understandable that situations arise in which the client must cancel their appointment. It is therefore requested that if the client must cancel their appointment, to do so within 48 hours of the scheduled appointment time. This will enable another client waiting for an appointment to be scheduled in that same time slot. Office and telehealth appointments that are cancelled with less than 48 hours notification will be charged the full service fee of $225.00.

Clients who do not show for their office or telehealth appointment will be considered as a NO SHOW and will be charged the full service fee of $225.00.
