Financial Policy

  • The staff at INTEGRAL MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING, (hereafter referred to as the clinic) are committed to providing caring and professional mental health care to all our clients. As part of the delivery of mental health services, we have established a financial policy that provides payment policies and options for consumers.The financial policy of the clinic is designed to clarify the payment policies as determined by management of the clinic.

    The person responsible for payment of account is required to sign the form payment contract for services, which explains the fees and collection policies of the clinic. Your insurance policy, if any, is a contract between an insurance company; we are not part of the contract with you and your insurance company.

    As a service to you, the clinic will bill insurance companies and other third-party payers but cannot guarantee such benefits or the amounts covered and is not responsible for the collection of such payments. In some cases, insurance companies or other third-party payers may consider certain services as not reasonable or necessary or may determine that services are not covered. In such cases the person responsible for payment of account is responsible for payment of these services. We charge our clients the usual and customary rates the area. Clients are responsible for payments regardless of any insurance company’s arbitrary determination of unusual and customary rates.

    The person responsible for payment (as noted in the payment contract for services) will be financially responsible for payment of such services. the person responsible for payment of account is financially responsible for paying funds not paid by insurance companies or third-party payers after 60 days. Payments not received after 120 days are subject to collections. One percent per month interest rate is charged for accounts over 60 days.

    Insurance deductibles and co-payments are due at the time of service. Although it is possible that mental health coverage deductible amounts may have been met elsewhere (e.g If there were previous visits to another mental health provider since January of the current year that were prior to the first session at the clinic), this amount will be collected by the clinic until the deductible payment is verified to the clinic by the insurance company or third-party provider. All insurance benefits will be assigned to this clinic (by insurance company or third-party provider) unless the person responsible for payment of account pays the entire balance each session.

    Clients are responsible for payments at the time of services.The adult accompanying a minor (or guardian of the minor) is responsible for payments for the child at the time of service. Unaccompanied minors will be denied non-emergency service unless charges have been preauthorized to an approved credit plan, charge card, or payment Contract for Services.

    Missed appointments or cancellations less than 24 hours prior to the appointment are charged at a rate noted in the Payment Contract for Services. Payment methods include: Cash, Zelle, Paypal or the following charge cards: Visa and Mastercard. Clients using charge cards may either use their card at each session or sign a document allowing the clinic to automatically submit charges to the charge card after each session.

    Questions regarding the financial policies can be answered by the Office Assistant Manager.

    I (we) have read, understand, and agree with the provisions of the Financial Policy.
