Here at Butterfly Effect Counseling and Consulting LLC, services are self-pay, and providers are Out-Of-Network with all insurances. This means that we are Not “In-Network” with any insurance companies.
We can provide you with a superbill to submit to insurance if you would like to use Out-Of-Network benefits. This DOES NOT guarantee reimbursement from your insurance and we are unable to submit claims on your behalf. To find out if you have Out-Of-Network benefits, please call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask, “What are my out-of-network benefits, and how do I submit claims?”. Please also mention the services are for mental health and location via telehealth or “in-person”.
Insurance may reimburse a portion of the rate you pay. If you choose to use Out-Of-Network benefits, you will need to be assigned a mental health diagnosis so that your insurance company can process the claims. Please be aware that you are still 100% responsible for payment at the time of service.
Please do not let finances be a barrier to your support and growth, as speaking about any financial hardships is always welcomed.
Lastly, since transparency is valued, we would also like to inform you that because we are an Out-Of-Network provider, you have every right to search for and locate a provider within your network, and could save by doing so. You are not required to use our services as an Out-Of-Network provider.
I accept cash, check, and all major credit cards as forms of payment. I also accept payment directly from FSA/HSA. Most clients set a card on file and accept automatic payments for session costs. These payments are initiated by Butterfly Effect Counseling and Consulting LLC via the HIPPA compliant and secure website Simple Practice.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you will be charged for the full rate of the session.
Good Faith Estimates
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.
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. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-985-3059.
