Initial Intake Assessment: $175
Follow Up Sessions (45-50 minutes): $100
All fees are due at the time service is rendered. I accept cash, checks, most credit cards, and HSA cards. Please be aware that I have a firm cancellation policy in place. If you cancel an appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice, or do not show for your scheduled appointment, then you will be charged a $35 fee that must be paid prior to the beginning of the next session. In addition, this fee cannot be charged to your insurance company, so you are responsible for paying it in full.
If Adrienne is not covered by your plan, then you can contact your insurance company to inquire about whether or not you have out of network benefits to pay for services. Please keep in mind that some people choose not to utilize insurance benefits because of confidentiality reasons since a mental health diagnosis is required to bill for services. Such information will then become part of your medical file that may affect certain areas in your life (i.e. employment, disability, etc.). If you choose to utilize your insurance, then you are responsible for knowing whether or not Adrienne is in your network and how much your copay will be. If Adrienne is not in your network and your policy does not have out of network benefits (OON), then you will be responsible for paying the full fee amounts that are listed above.
Adrienne accepts cash, checks, credit cards, and health savings accounts (HSA) as payment.
The client, or parent if the client is a minor, is responsible for all professional fees for services rendered. It is the client’s responsibility to know whether or not mental health services are covered by their insurance, what their copay may be, and whether or not there is a deductible that must be met. The client will also be responsible for all fees for services that may be denied by their insurance company.
Past Due Accounts
If there is a balance on the account, statements will be sent out in an effort to obtain payment in full or to make payment arrangements. If a client has not made an effort to pay the balance of their account, then the overdue account may be turned over to a collection agency, and the client will be responsible for any additional fees charged by the collection agency. Adrienne also reserves the right to take the delinquent account to small claims court, where the client will also be responsible for any fees associated with the proceedings.
Cancellation and No Show Policy
If you cannot keep a scheduled appointment, please notify the office immediately. If a client misses an appointment, or cancels with less than 24 hours notice, then the client will be charged the full cost of the session. This fee cannot be billed to the insurance company, and the client will be financially responsible for paying the charge prior to scheduling another session.
