Insurance:

Psych Garden and its providers are “fee for service providers.” Meaning, we do not accept insurance or submit claims on behalf of its patients. If you have a PPO or POS plan you will likely be reimbursed some portion after you reach your deductible. However, every carrier is different – please contact your provider to verify benefits prior to any appointments.

Payment:

We require a credit card on file for payment of services. Payment is processed each week for the previous week’s appointments. On occasion, payment may be processed earlier or later due to staff scheduling, holidays or end of month. We send out statements at the beginning of each month showing all charges and payments for the previous month. This statement will have all the necessary information needed to submit an insurance claim.

Guarantor Rights:

If services are being paid for by someone other than the patient, the payor/guarantor is allowed by law, to receive and discuss information related to billing, including appointment dates or any information necessary to submit claims to insurance. Monthly billing statements may be sent to the guarantor. This statement will include the patient’s diagnosis and all services received, including “No Show” appointments.

Cancellation and No Show Policy:

Cancellations with less than 48 business hours notice, or No Show appointments will be billed at the full session fee unless:
1.) We can fill your appointment with another client. We will make every effort to fill the time, and if we are able to, you will not be charged.
2.) Inclement weather prevents you and/or your provider from making it to the office safely. If this happens, a video or phone session will be scheduled if possible.
