Policies


fees

Please contact us to discuss our current fees.  Fees are typically for 50 minute sessions although we can schedule longer 90 minute sessions for an increased fee if/when needed.  We request payment at the time of service unless other arrangements with me have been made.  Payment is received in the form of cash, check, or major credit card (with additional 3 per cent service change).


insurance

At this time, we have chosen not to join any health insurance panels.  However, if your health insurance carrier enables you to choose an “out -of-network” provider, you may be eligible to receive reimbursement for psychotherapy services from a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.  Upon request, we are able to provide a reimbursement receipt or “super bill” for submittal to your insurance company.  If you intend to use insurance, we recommend that you contact your plan to ask about your psychotherapy benefits and rates for reimbursement for out-of-network providers.  Please remember that our services are provided and charged to you, not your insurance company, so you are responsible for payment.


commitment to care

Based on our commitment to providing care to a diverse group of individuals, we do have limited availability of lower fee slots.  We encourage you to inquire about lower fees if you are in need of accommodation.


telephone availability & emergencies

Telephone messages are typically returned during business hours.  We check voice mail frequently and are committed to returning calls as soon as possible.  Although there are days when each of us are not in the office, you are welcome to callduring these times, and we will do our best to return your call quickly.  

*Please note: The Postpartum Wellness Center of Boulder does not provide emergency services.  In an emergency situation, please dial 911. contact your primary care provider, or go to the nearest hospital emergency room.


cancellation

Appointment scheduling involves the reservation of time especially for you, therefore, it is important to provide at least 24-hours cancellation notice by phone should you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment; otherwise the full fee will be charged and will be due at the time of your next appointment.  We certainly expect to make exceptions to this policy foranythingthat can be reasonably called an “emergency.”


OB Clinic offices

The PWCB offers individual, couples, and family sessions at our offices in Central Boulder (2300 Canyon Blvd).  In addition, we have satellite offices at Boulder Women’s Care and Boulder Med Center OBGyn where we provide 4-week postpartum mental health checks to all patients.
