What is a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and the No Surprises Act?
As per legal requirements, healthcare providers must provide patients without insurance or not utilizing insurance with an estimation of anticipated expenses for medical and psychotherapeutic services. You hold the entitlement to acquire a “Good Faith Estimate” detailing the expenses associated with your medical and mental health care. It applies to all non-emergency medical facilities, including psychotherapy services, and you can request it from any provider before scheduling a service. In case the bill exceeds $400 of the Good Faith Estimate, you can contest the invoice, and it’s crucial to keep a copy or picture of the estimation. For more details or inquiries regarding your right to a Good Faith Estimate, please visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
How often are sessions?
Our appointments are scheduled for a weekly basis, and once we mutually agree on a session time, that specific time slot will be exclusively reserved for you.
Do I offer in person sessions?
At this time, no. I only offer telehealth sessions.
Is telehealth as effective as in person sessions?
Yes, video therapy can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as it is conducted by a qualified mental health professional and the patient has a stable internet connection and access to a private and quiet space.
Studies have shown that video therapy can be just as effective as in-person therapy for a variety of mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Additionally, video therapy offers certain advantages over in-person therapy, such as increased accessibility and convenience, especially for those who have difficulty accessing in-person therapy due to transportation, distance, or mobility issues.
Do I take insurance?
At present, I do not take insurance and am considered as “out of network”. However, it is possible for your insurance company to reimburse you for some of your treatment expenses. It is advisable to check with your insurance provider to ensure their coverage aligns with your financial requirements. Here are a few sample questions that you can ask:
- Does my insurance policy include coverage for mental health treatment?
- What is the deductible, and how much do I have to pay before insurance starts covering the treatment?
- How many therapy sessions are covered by my insurance policy each year?
- What is the amount that insurance covers for each therapy session?
- Is it necessary to have my doctor’s approval for the therapy sessions?
