Do you accept insurance?
I currently only accept Lyra Health for direct insurance payments. You may be reimbursed by your PPO insurance plan. As an out-of-network provider, you can typically be reimbursed between 20-80% of the cost for each session. Please contact your insurance plan to find the exact reimbursement rate.
How can I use my PPO insurance?

I would suggest calling your PPO insurance company and asking about their policy on out-of-network behavioral health care. Be sure to specifically ask for the amount of any deductibles, what percentage of services they will reimburse, and if there are limits on the number of visits per calendar year.

Should you choose to come here for treatment, you will be required to pay for your session in full at the time of service. I will provide you with a monthly statement (“superbill”) that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
