Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept insurance?

Yes and No

I am in-network with providers within the state of New Jersey. This means I only am able to accept insurance for patients living in NJ.

For those living in any other state, I require an out of pocket payment at the time of service. A Superbill can be provided upon request.

I do not accept Medicare.

What is a superbill?

A superbill is needed by any individual who is out-of-network (paying out of pocket for services) and would like to try to be reimbursed by their insurance company.

A superbill is a document specifically for insurance companies. It details the services provided and the cost of services, as well as information such as diagnoses and procedure codes. Once received, you will need to submit this document to your insurance company and file an out-of-network claim for reimbursement. Your insurance company will review the claim and elect to reimburse all, some, or none of the services. This is up to the discretion of the insurer and their assessment. Our office can make no guarantees regarding out-of-network reimbursement.

What is the out of pocket (private pay) fee?

Please contact our office for the most up-to-date pricing.

Do you offer a discount or sliding-scale fee?

I believe that access to therapy is important and out-of-pocket expenses can be challenging. We will work with you and/or your family on a payment plan or structure for a limited time, to increase affordability. Please note, I only have limited spots reserved for discounted sessions.

Do you see patients virtually and in person?
