Medication Refills

It is your responsibility to inform me if you are in need of a refill on your medication. This is best done during your session and will save you a $25 charge for medication refill requests outside of the appointment.

Sliding Scale

I do set aside a percentage of my practice for providing psychiatric care for lower-income individuals based on a sliding scale.

Out of Network Insurance Carrier Reimbursement

Your insurance carrier may reimburse you for payments even though I am considered an "out of network" provider. If you wish to seek reimbursement from your insurance carrier I will provide you with a signed receipt for services which contain what would reasonably be expected to be the information necessary for your insurance carrier to process your reimbursement. Clients are responsible for the disclosure of the information contained on such a receipt and for completing any relevant insurance claim form, submitting such claim, and directly seeking reimbursement from their insurance carrier.

Cancellation Policy

When you schedule an appointment, you are reserving time. Any missed appointment or cancellation with less than a 24-hour notice will be charged $125.00. Exceptions are at the discretion of IBC. Please note that insurance plans do not pay for missed appointments. These charges will be entirely your responsibility. Therapy may be discontinued with individuals with a pattern of frequent cancellations.
