Practice Information


We are considered an out-of-network provider.   Services may be covered partially or fully by out-of-network insurance benefits. Those with a high-deductible health plan or a health savings account may find little economic difference going in or out of network due to the high deductible.  At the end of each session after payment an invoice is provided that can be submitted to your insurance provider and/or Flexible Spending Account. When considering psychological services, it is important to know your coverage.  Questions to ask your insurance company include:

  • What is the out-of-network deductible?
  • How much is the copay or coinsurance?
  • How many sessions does my insurance cover per year?
  • Is prior approval or authorization needed?
  • What is the address or fax number to send claims?

If you plan to use VCC for reimbursements, please have your claim number ready when you schedule your appointment.
