Frequently Asked Questions
We are in network with Medicare, BCBS, Humana, United Healthcare/Optum Health, Tricare, and and also accept “self-pay” and patients with “out of network” benefits; for patients that have confirmed their “out of network,” benefits with their insurance company, we are happy to provide an appropriate “superbill” record for you to share with your insurance so that you can seek reimbursement for your visit/s. We recommend contacting your insurance directly to ensure your benefits allow you to seek services from an “out of network” mental health provider office.
