Receipts for Fees
If you would like a receipt for tax purposes, please ask for a receipt. If you plan to submit a claim to your health insurance plan, PPO or other insurance provider, ask for a receipt that you can submit to your plan.
Fees are payable at the beginning of the session or in advance. Cash, checks, debit or PayPal are accepted. Insurance
You are responsible for verifying and understanding the limits of your insurance coverage. Although I will be happy to assist your efforts to seek insurance reimbursement, most insurance companies do not guarantee that they will pay for your therapy sessions even if they approve them in advance.
Also, be aware that insurance plans generally limit coverage to certain diagnosable mental conditions. And, although I will make every effort to keep your records completely confidential, your insurance company has access to some of your records. They require your diagnosis, and sometimes request your treatment plan and progress reports for reimbursement purposes.
If you decide to use your health insurance coverage, make sure that your insurance plan allows you to use Janis Powell, LCSW, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and also ask about your eligibility under your plan for mental health services.
Prior to your first session, we will discuss and mutually determine the fee for services. Periodically the fee arrangement will be discussed and arrangements may be made for an adjustment. Fee adjustments will be discussed well in advance.
