Fees/Payment

Because I am a licensed psychologist, my services will be covered by most insurance plans. I currently accept CareFirst BCBS. However, I do not participate in any other managed care or insurance plans. 

If you would like to file for reimbursement with an insurance company other than CareFirst BCBS, I can provide you with the information you need.

Some important points to consider about insurance include:

• Insurance companies require information about the reason for psychological treatment to process claims. Some plans require detailed information about why treatment is being sought, diagnosis, personal history, symptoms, family and work life, level of functioning, and other personal and highly sensitive information.

• Many insurance companies use information they collect to determine if treatment is medically necessary, the type of therapy that can be reimbursed, and length of treatment. The people who make this decision are not medically trained and are not experts in the field.

School Observation: $350 (Includes observation plus report writing)

Not all behavior issues manifest at home, and some children have behavioral issues that are primarily apparent in the classroom setting.

She will work closely with your child’s school and teacher to create an effective behavior management plan, complete with goals and recommendations, to increase positive outcomes in the classroom setting.
