Please confirm with your Insurance Company that your individual plan covers the services of a psychiatrist. Note that some insurance may cover some types of illness, such as depressionbipolar and mood disorders, but not other types of issues such as learning disorders or eating disorders, gender identity disorders. For any reason, if I am not able to bill your insurance company due to non-coverage, you will be charged for the Doctor’s fee and you will be responsible for billing your insurance company. See the list of insurance plans we accept below.

Please call your insurance company for the following information:

  • Do you require a prior authorization for any Psychiatric Services?
  • What will your co-payment be?
  • Do you have any deductible or pre-existing conditions?
