Investment

Your emotional well-being is just as important as your physical well-being. Therapy is an investment in yourself (or your child) just like education, a gym membership, home renovations, etc.

Payment

You can make payment for in-office sessions via cash, check, or credit card (no additional cost). I use a HIPAA-compliant payment app for all credit card payments. You will be asked to put your payment information on file through the app at our first session. Your privacy is protected as I do not see the full credit card information, only the last four digits. For all online sessions, payment by credit card is required.

Insurance

I am not a paneled provider for any insurance companies and therefore do not bill directly to them. I can provide you with a monthly billing statement to submit to your insurance company to request reimbursement. Please note that insurance companies require a diagnosis in order to reimburse for mental health services. It is possible that you will not meet criteria for a diagnosis, in which case I would be unable to provide you with a statement. It is also important to consider if you want a diagnosis to be a part of your, or your child’s, medical record.

No Surprises Act

In accordance with federal law, Bloom Psychological Services, LLC will provide self-pay clients (those who are uninsured or choose to not use or get reimbursed by their insurance) with a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) prior to their first appointment and as necessary to best reflect the current treatment plan. Per the law:

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care 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 or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate, in writing, at least 1 business day before your medical service. You also can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service or item.
  • 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 the No Surprises Act and your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises, email FederalPPDRQuestions@cms.hhs.gov, or call 1-800-985-3059.
