I accept and bill most insurances, including Tricare. Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan, co-pay is due at the time of service. Please check your coverage carefully.*Secondary Insurances are not billed by Cardinal Counseling. A statement can be provided and you may submit if you choose.
The list below are suggestions to ask your insurance company:
Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session/ co-pay?
How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network provider?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Are there any limitations to my coverage?
I do not accept Medicaid nor bill Medicaid. I do have a few slots reserved for reduced rates for Medicaid or low-income clients. I recommend contacting me to see if I have reduced rate spot available or I can recommend another therapist as well. Places around Anchorage that accept Medicaid are: Anchorage Community Mental Health Services (ACMHS), Providence, Denali Family Services and Alaska Child and Family. Sliding scale services are located at Alaska Family Counseling, UAA Psychological Services Center (907) 786-1795 or for couples issues The Couples Center of Alaska.
Your estimated co-pay or deductible amount is due at the time of service. As a courtesy I will bill a primary insurance company, following their payment, a second bill with any remaining balance will be sent to you for payment. I do not bill additional insurance policies but you are welcome to submit any remaining balance to your additional insurance providers.
I request 24-hours for cancellation of sessions. If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, and/or you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the treatment as booked. Insurance companies do not pay for missed appointments.
Please contact me if you have any additional questions. 907-382-8595
