Out-of-Network Insurance Benefits:

If you have insurance but do not have insurance coverage with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee or Magellan Health, I may be considered an out-of-network provider for your insurance carrier.  If you prefer to utilize these out-of-network benefits, this is how the process works.  You will be responsible for paying my full fee at each session.  Subsequent to your session, I will provide you with a receipt on my company letterhead which will have all of the information that your insurance company will need to process the claim.  You will then furnish that information to your insurance carrier in the manner that they require for claiming out-of-network benefits.  It is highly likely that your insurance carrier will reimburse you at a lower rate than they would for an in-network provider.  If you are needing to know in advance what your insurance company will reimburse you, I advise contacting them before starting therapy.

Prior to using any insurance for your therapy services, it is important for you to be aware that in order for your claim to be considered for reimbursement, your insurance company will require that I provide a diagnostic code representing one of the mental/behavioral disorders found in the DSM 5 diagnostic manual.  Please note that having a psychiatric diagnosis can potentially interfere now and in the future with your ability to secure certain forms of employment as well as being accepted for life insurance and some health insurance coverage.

Private Pay:

The usual and customary fee for services is $170 for each 50-minute psychotherapy session.  If a psychotherapy session extends beyond the usual 50 minute time frame, you will be charged a prorated amount for the extended time based on my standard, usual and customary fee of $170. This will also be the case for extended phone or email consultations, report writing, report reviewing, requested attendance at meetings, consultations with other professionals or preparation of treatment summaries.
