Insurance and Fees


Insurance Benefits and Employee Assistance Programs 

Thought LAB Therapy has partnered with a national company to facilitate the use of certain insurance benefits. We file claims for the in-network plans for Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare/Optum, Oxford Health, Oscar, and UMR. The ones we are in-network with are employer-sponsored and student health insurance plans. This partner service can provide an insurance verification which estimates your out-of-pocket costs for our therapy sessions, usually within two business days. You will be responsible for all non-covered services, deductibles, and co-pays for out-of-pocket fees on the day of your visit. This national provider does not contract with state Medicaid programs or Health Insurance Marketplace plans by these insurers, so I DO NOT ACCEPT MEDICAID. I am a provider for traditional Medicare (with red, white and blue ID card). We are not an in-network provider for other health insurance plans and do not file claims for out-of-network insurers. We currently participate in the Optum Live and Work Well Employee Assistance Program. We plan to begin participation in the Optum Emotional Well-Being Solutions Employee Assistance Program in January 2024. Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) are a great benefit that gives employees access to a set number (usually 3-10) of free sessions. Talk to your Human Resources staff to learn if this benefit is available. 

You may be able to receive reimbursement for approximately 50-80% of my fees if your health insurance plan coverage includes out-of-network benefits. This partial reimbursement for treatment is often available for PPO-type insurance plans. You'll need to file a claim with your insurer and provide them with information, including medical codes and fees paid for your treatment. I can provide you with this documentation on a form known as a "superbill." If you choose to file an out-of-network claim for my services, I cannot guarantee your claim will be paid. *I do not file or process out-of-network claims, but I am willing to assist you with the claims process.

I accept major credit cards, Health Savings Account (HSA) cards, or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) cards as forms of payment. I use Square, Chase or Ivy Pay for payment processing. Ivy Pay offers payment discretion and allows you to make payments without a merchant name being listed on your billing statement. I require a credit card and a insurance card to be on file 48 hours in advance of an initial appointment, or it will be canceled. You may see a $1 authorization once your credit card is on file. This is not a charge and will fall off  between 1-14 days, 

Cancellation Policy

If you cannot attend a session, please cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you will be charged a late cancellation fee of $125. If I need to cancel, I’ll offer you a cancellation credit.
