Fees & Insurance

Fees & Insurance

O'Brien & Associates offers a range of options for session rates that vary based on the level of the clinician and the geographic area that you live within. We are an out-of-network provider with all insurance providers. All clients pay their services fees on the day they receive services. If you have a PPO type insurance plan, many insurance providers will reimburse 50-80% of your fees depending on your coverage and if you have met your deductible.

Our clients prefer a personalized higher level of service than is not dictated by the tight restraints of in-network managed care. With us, you control your confidentiality and whether your information is released to your insurance. Insurance providers require a diagnosis for payment and keep records of treatment, which may not be beneficial to some of our clients based on their profession or other factors.

Insurance

 

We are an out-of-network provider with all insurance providers. All clients pay their services fees on the day they receive services. If you have a PPO type insurance plan, many insurance providers will reimburse 50-80% of your fees depending on your coverage and if you have met your deductible. If you have health insurance that is a PPO policy with out-of-network benefits your insurance may reimburse you. Upon request, after your payment is received and your session is completed, we can provide you with a "superbill" which you can submit to your insurance company. Any reimbursement payments from your insurance company will be paid directly to you. Even though you may have out-of-network mental health or substance abuse benefits and our services are authorized we cannot guarantee you will be reimbursed by your insurance company. We do not accept Medicare, Medi-Cal, or Oregon Health Plan, and these programs do not cover our services.

Helpful questions to ask your insurance company:


• Do I have mental health coverage?
• What percentage of my bill will be covered for services obtained by an out-of-network provider?
• How many sessions will be covered per calendar year?
• What is my deductible and has it been met?

Rescheduling & Cancellations

 

You must provide a minimum of 48-hours notice in advance of scheduled services to change or cancel the appointment at no charge. Late cancellations or reschedules and missed appointments are billed at the same rate as the actual service.
