A note for potential new clients.
Welcome! I am glad you have reached out. Please be aware however that my practice stays pretty full and I can admit new clients only as openings come up. The best way to get started is to drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Tell me what you hope to work on / improve, and I will get back to you re possible start dates.
ENGAGING MY HELP
Finding a good fit between client(s) and therapist is important. I offer a 20 minute complimentary conversation as you are thinking about committing to a course of treatment. Simply call or email me to set up a time for us to address your concerns.
$100 an hour.
HOW TO PAY ~
OPTION #1 – PRIVATE PAY
The easiest and most flexible choice. There are no privacy issues since insurance companies and corporate wellness programs never review your files, and no mental health diagnosis is needed or given. I am sometimes able to negotiate a better per-session price if you are interested in longer or depth work and concerned about how to afford this work.
Fees are due at time of treatment.
- Mastercard / Visa / Discover / American Express
- All of the above cards from Health Savings Accounts
OPTION #2 – USING HEALTH INSURANCE or EMPLOYEE WELLNESS PROGRAMS
I am currently an in-network provider, and offer direct billing, with:
- Blue Cross of Idaho
- Regence Blue Cross
- Select Health
Please scroll down and see Form 4 for suggestions on optimizing your Health Insurance Benefits. There are limits, co-payments and conditions you’d be wise to understand.
OPTION #3 – FORM 1500 / OUT OF NETWORK PROVIDER
If you have health insurance with Behavioral Health benefits but I am not an in-network provider you may still benefit greatly by completing Form 1500 (see Form 6 below). This form allows you to claim our work using this form, and your company may have a price point for reimbursing you some % (I’ve seen up to 60% reimbursement) for out of network providers.
Before working with me please download, review & complete the relevant forms ~
- New Client Intake PDF Version (best if you want to print the form, complete by hand and either bring it with you when you come, or mail to me at 1674 Hill Road, Suite 14, Boise, Idaho 83702. Either of these methods most protects your privacy.)
- New Client Intake MS Word Version (best if you wish to download to your own computer, complete on line and return to me as an email attachment. Using technology this way is typically less secure – your choice though.)
- Informed-consent A PDF document. Please print, read carefully, sign and bring with you to our first session.
- Using Health Insurance Please review if you hope to use your health insurance to pay for our work.
- ACE Score Calculator
- 1500 Health Insurance Claim Form
I understand times can be tough. If you believe working with me will help but are not sure how to budget for the costs involved, call or email me and we can discuss some options.
