Your Rights & Good Faith Estimate

Your Rights

Starting January 1, 2022, the federal government requires all healthcare providers to offer a good faith estimate of services. I charge for services following each visit. This means that, unless there is a problem with credit card processing, you will rarely carry a balance of more than one session and thus never experience an unexpectedly large bill. That being said, I am providing this information in compliance with the government regulation.


You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Under the law, healthcare providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.


For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises. 


Some services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. I am willing provide a receipt containing necessary information for you to submit to a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please note that I do not directly bill insurance companies–that is your responsibility. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
  • How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network provider?
  • Will your provider reimburse you for my services?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?


Payment is accepted at the time of the appointment in the form of check, cash, and credit card.

Cancellation Policy

Please give a 24-hour notice if it becomes necessary for you to cancel a scheduled appointment. If you miss a scheduled appointment w/out  giving a previous day notice, you may be responsible for $70 fee.

Unforeseen emergencies and other unavoidable circumstances do occasionally arise. If this occurs please address the issue with me.
