Insurance
I am an In-Network PPO healthcare provider for the following insurance plans:
                                Aetna
                                Anthem Blue Cross of California
                                Beacon Health Options
                                Blue Shield of California (PPO only)
                                Cigna
                                Managed Health Network
                                Optum Behavioral Health
                                United Behavioral Health Plan of California
                                Value Options

I regret that I no longer am able to accept Magellan Behavioral Health insurance. 
They are also the Blue Shield of California HMO carve-out, so please that note that I no longer am able to accept Blue Shield of Calfiornia HMO.

I do not accept Medicare or Medi-Cal as I am a Medicare/Medi-Cal "opt-out" provider.


Payment
Payment in full (your insurance co-payment, co-insurance and/or deductible; or your direct fee-for-service payment) is due at time of service. I accept cash or personal check. (I also am able to accept credit card or debit card, however there is 2.83% processing fee.) A receipt for services can be provided upon request.


Cancellation policy and Missed Appointments
I request a minimum of 48 hours advance notice to cancel an appointment. Missed appointments and those canceled with less than 48 hours notice will incur a $100 flat fee for the missed service. Exceptions to this policy are physical illness, personal or work emergencies, or any unanticipated circumstances that reasonably could be called an “emergency”. 
Make-up appointments are offered as scheduling allows.
