This is completed when an appointment is booked. Payment is collected online via my website prior to each session, before services are rendered. This applies both to working together online and in person.
In order to manage expectations, there is a Contract signed between client and practitioner (via DocuSign) that annotates cost, a set amount of sessions, meeting frequency, email communications, any additional requested communications (phone calls), etc.
Guidelines are to be clear up front.
* Please note that if a check bounces there will be a $35 NSF fee charged to the client, and payment is due within 7 days of notifying a client in writing of nonsufficient funds.
** All payments are final.
For any Client of, or referral from, The Wellness Connection, payment will be made via a platform called SimplePractice.
I do not work directly with insurance companies and will most likely qualify as an out-of-network provider.
Due to the fact that every individual has a potentially different insurance company from that of the next client, the best way to find out how much is covered is to call your insurance provider and ask the following questions:
A client should speak with their provider prior to purchasing services, especially if that is a primary factor in one's participation.
Please keep in mind that notifying an insurance company of any session is the responsibility of the client, as is following up with any reimbursement.
Regulations and timeline for reimbursement will vary by provider and will be dependent upon the agency's established procedures / protocols, which are not dictated by my office.
Clients are expected to call at least 24 hours prior to their appointment to make any changes. Rescheduling should take place within the same week if at all possible and can also been done online through the website (which is time-stamped) if that is easier for the client. Should a client fail to reschedule within 24 hours or reschedules the same appointment two or more times within any 24-hour time frame prior to meeting, he / she will incur a $50 fee in addition to the regular cost of the session.
Appointments are to be done consistently on a weekly basis for 3-6 sessions, so any extended lapse in time between appointments may slow one's progress.
Should a client fail to show for an appointment, he / she will be charged the full price of each missed session.
A client's file / information will never be shared with, or sold to, external sources or third parties. Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and practitioner. It goes without saying that a high degree of trust and rapport is required in order to discuss sensitive subject matter that is typically not discussed outside this setting.
Note: State law and professional ethics requires therapists to maintain confidentiality, except for the following situations:
