Insurance and Payments:
Major Credit Cards and Health Savings Account Debit Cards are accepted and
collected at first visit. They are saved on a HIPAA-compliant format
electronically. The cards are charged at each visit for co-pays,
co-insurances and private pays. The cards are also charged for late cancels
(giving less than 24-hr notice) and "no-shows."
I am an in-network provider with Premera, Lifewise, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Tricare, Kaiser (not "core HMO"), United Behavioral Health (Optum) and Regence. *When I am an Out-of-Network Provider, I will bill your insurance for you (not including secondary insurance - I will provide forms for you to bill for reimbursement).
**It is the client's responsibility to verify mental health coverage. With some insurance plans, you may be required to get an authorization code before your first counseling session. Some insurance plans involve other insurance plans to cover mental health services. In those cases, I may or may not be in-network with those other agencies. Check with your insurance to see if they recognize me as an "in-network mental health outpatient provider" before deciding to make an appointment, or you may be responsible for whatever the insurance does not cover. My NPI is 117-494-8988 and Tax ID is #81-4392829.
Some helpful questions you can ask your insurance :
- What are my mental health benefits (deductible, co-pay or co-insurance, how much deductible has been met, etc)?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
- How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
- (If I am out of network) Do I need to give permission for Denise Hie to speak freely with my insurance provider about financial-related developments?
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance of a cancellation, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session. Your insurance will not pay for it, and they will not apply it to your deductible. Your card on file will be charged on the appointment day.
