If you choose to use an insurance benefit, we will collect the appropriate information over the phone, call your insurance company to find out about any deductibles or co-payments you may be responsible for and any restrictions the insurance company may have regarding using your benefit. We will call you back with this information prior to your first session.
We do our best to insure that there are no surprises; but in spite of our best efforts, insurance companies occasionally do not handle things the way we expected or sometimes even the way they said they would. If that happens, you remain responsible for your bill and we will work with you to work out a payment plan.
