Payment for the Initial Evaluation is accepted at the time of service, either by check, electronic transfer, cash, or credit card (fee applies). Payment for episodic visits for medication management is accepted during or shortly after the date of service. Patients attending sessions more than once per month will generally be billed on a monthly basis, and payment is expected within ten days of the date of the statement. If, in the course of the work, collecting payment for sessions becomes a time consuming effort on his part, Dr. Cohen reserves the right to request payment in advance of scheduling future sessions.
Please note that Dr. Cohen is considered Out of Network for all insurance carriers (including Medicare), but he will provide you with a document containing all the relevant and necessary information for you to submit to your insurance company (not Medicare, however, for which a separate contract applies), and you will be reimbursed based upon your Out of Network benefits. Payment of your balance is never contingent upon reimbursement by your insurance company.
Please note that Dr. Cohen does not supply progress notes or medical records in response to requests from insurance companies seeking to evaluate coverage for psychiatric services. This may affect your ability to be reimbursed for Dr. Cohen’s services.
There may be other circumstances in which Dr. Cohen charges a fee for a particular service. However, you will be notified in advance of the service rendered.
