Insurance

Is testing covered by my insurance?

In many cases, a portion of testing is covered by insurance. My office checks benefits prior to the first appointment, and we provide clients with an estimate of the cost of testing and any coverage provided by their health plan. However, as I always tell clients, we don’t know the exact out-of-pocket cost until the insurance company processes the claims.

What insurance plans do you accept?

BCBS PPO (Standard and Choice), BCBS HMO (Ingalls Provider Group, Essential Health Partners, Southland IPA), Medicare, Aetna (via Ingalls Provider Group/University of Chicago), and Loyola Physician Partners. Clients with HMOs must have a referral from their primary care physician before testing can be scheduled.

For all other plans, my practice is out of network. Clients with out of network plans are considered self-pay and they are provided with a receipt so that they may seek reimbursement directly from their insurance company. Additionally, I’m not a Medicaid provider, and I don’t contract with any managed behavioral health organizations.

Can I pay for testing myself?

Yes, you can. The cost of the initial consultation is $275.00. Once I complete that, I can provide you with an estimate of the cost of testing as well as options for payment.

Referrals

Clients with HMOs must have a authorized referral from their primary care physician that has been requested through their insurance before appointments can be scheduled.

Payment

I accept cash, check and all major credit cards as forms of payment.
