INFORMATION ABOUT OUR TREATMENT COSTS

What are "out-of-network" costs and who are "out-of-network" providers?

Skyline Psychotherapy & Assessment Services, PLLC psychologists are considered "out-of-network providers," which means that we do not receive payment from insurance companies. Instead, our clients are billed directly for their services and then provided with documentation that they would need to submit to their insurance companies for potential reimbursement. We always recommend contacting your insurance company to inquire about out-of-network reimbursement prior to the first scheduled treatment session. For further explanation or guidance on this issue, please feel free to contact us!

OUR FEE STRUCTURE

Below is a list of our standard fees for 2022.

NOTICE:

You have the Right to Receive a "Good Faith Estimate" of Expected Treatment Costs

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
