Letter Writing/Records Request: Prorated based off your therapist's hourly rate
We are "Out-of-Network" Providers, which means that your therapy can truly be tailored to your own individual needs and not dictated or limited by insurance companies. This allows for the freedom to meet at your convenience, from the comfort of your own home or private space. You may have Out-of-Network benefits with your insurance company and will need to call them to ask what falls under your plan. This means that you will be responsible for payment at time of service and Wilcox Wellness will provide you, free of charge, with the documentation needed for you to submit to your insurance for potential reimbursement, based off of your plan. Using "Out-of-Network" benefits means that some of your information must be shared with your insurance company in order for them to reimburse you. For instance, a diagnosis will be required to be on file and the insurance company may choose to audit your records.
You may choose to pay privately for your therapy sessions, which means that your information will be completely confidential and you do not have to involve any insurance company. Your therapist will provide you with a "Good Faith Estimate" further reiterating their rates and an estimated cumulative cost of therapy.
Cancellation/Missed Appointment Policy
Our scheduled time together is sacred and reserved especially for you. Please provide at least 48 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment. You will be responsible for the cancellation fee of the full standard rate of the session if you “no-show” or cancellation is less than 48 hours. Half and Full Day EMDR Intensive sessions require at least 2 weeks notice for cancellation or rescheduling.
Your Rights and Protections Against Surprise Medical Bills
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of the expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. If you are eligible for a Good Faith Estimate, make sure your healthcare provider gives you one in writing at least one business day before you are to receive the medical service or item, unless your appointment is scheduled less than three days in advance. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill through the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. There is a fee to dispute bills.
Who is NOT affected by these “surprise billing” rules?
Patients whose insurance isn’t accepted by the facility at all, but who choose to schedule or receive non-emergency care and will be submitting a superbill to their insurance company for Out-Of-Network reimbursement.
Patients whose entire non-emergency visit is in-network, meaning the facility and treating providers participate in their insurance coverage.
What is “balance billing” (sometimes called “surprise billing”)?
When you see a doctor or other health care provider, you may owe certain out-of-pocket costs, such as a copayment, coinsurance, and/or a deductible. You may have other costs or have to pay the entire bill if you see a provider or visit a health care facility that isn’t in your health plan’s network.
“Out-of-network” describes providers and facilities that haven’t signed a contract with your health plan. Out-of-network providers, may be permitted to bill you for the difference between what your plan agreed to pay and the full amount charged for a service. This is called “balance billing.” This amount is likely more than in-network costs for the same service and might not count toward your annual out-of-pocket limit.
“Surprise billing” is an unexpected balance bill. This can happen when you can’t control who is involved in your care—like when you have an emergency or when you schedule a visit at an in network facility but are unexpectedly treated by an out-of-network provider.
You’re never required to give up your protections from balance billing. You also aren’t required to get care out-of-network. You can choose a provider or facility in your plan’s network.
