I accept cash, checks, and all major credit/debit cards as forms of payment.
I am affiliated with Cigna and MHN. Please note that insurance is considered a method of reimbursing the client for fees paid to the provider and is not a substitute for payment. Some companies pay a fixed allowance for certain procedures, and others pay a percentage of the charge. Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. The client is responsible for any deductible amount, co-insurance, or any other balance not paid by your insurance company at the time of service.
I also accept most P.P.O. forms of insurance. Most frequently my clients pay out of pocket and after 8-10 sessions I generate a super-bill that lists all the dates of sessions that clients then submit to their insurance companies who then reimburse them for a percentage of the fee depending on the plan they have.
If you choose to use your insurance, please check your coverage by calling your insurance company directly prior to scheduling an appointment and ask them the following questions:
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
- Is Patrick Cleveland, LMFT on my insurance panel?
- If not, how much would I get reimbursed for seeing him as an out of network provider?
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
