FAQs

Do you take my insurance?

  • I participate with Medicare and Blue Cross.
  • Call 302-543-5755 to inquire about other insurance companies.

What about out-of-network benefits?

  • My billing company will call your insurance agency to determine whether my services are covered by your out-of-network benefits.
  • Although fees are generally to be paid at the time services are rendered, my billing company will submit billing  to the insurance agency for your reimbursement.

I’ve never done this before and it’s overwhelming to make the call.   What happens?

  • The first step is making the call.   I’m usually with a client, so you’re likely to get my voicemail.  Leave your name and number, and I’ll call you back.
  • When we do speak, you’ll tell me just a little bit about what’s bothering you so I can get a feel for whether or not I’m the right therapist for you.
  • If you decide to make an appointment,  I’ll ask you for your insurance information, address, date of birth, etc.   I’ll give that information to my billing company, and they will verify your benefits.
  • I’ll send you intake paperwork in advance.
  • When the appointment day comes,  we’ll meet for about 45 minutes to an hour.  You’ll describe your concerns more fully and I’ll ask a lot of questions.   Usually, by the end of this session, we’ll both know if we’re a good match.
  • I’ll let you know my recommendation for proceeding, and we’ll make a decision about that.
