Our Psychiatry Fees & Policies
We currently accept most policies through Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna and United Healthcare. If you have insurance coverage through one of these providers, please contact us directly to see if we accept your plan. If we do not accept your insurance coverage or you choose not to use your insurance, our fee schedule is as follows:
- Initial Appointment/Evaluation: $200
- Follow-up Appointments/Med Check: $135
- Paperwork/FMLA/Short Term Disability: $50
- In the event that an evaluation extends beyond the customary level of service, the fee will adjust to reflect the level of service provided. We will always discuss this with you during the appointment.
We will be happy to provide you with an itemized invoice if requested for out-of-network coverage, FSA/HSA reimbursement.
Our goal at Uptown Psychiatry is to promote wellness and resiliency. We generally do not assist with long term disability applications.
Insurance coverage will be verified as a courtesy for clients who have an insurance carrier that is accepted by the treating provider, prior to the first appointment.
If any coverage issues are found during insurance verification, Uptown Psychiatry will communicate the information to the client prior to their visit. However, the ultimate responsibility for verifying coverage rests with the client. Benefit information obtained from the insurance company and/or authorization(s) are not a guarantee of payment to Uptown Psychiatry. If it is determined that insurance coverage was not active at the time of services, any charges billed will be the financial responsibility of the client. Payment will become due immediately.
All fees/copays are due prior to the service being rendered, and we accept all major credit/credit cards as well as FSA/HSA. We do require patients to authorize a payment card on file to cover fees/copays.
Fees for completion of forms (FMLA, short-term, etc.) are to be paid in advance and are not billed to your insurance carrier.
Cancellation and No-Show Policy:
Your appointment is time we have specifically set aside for you, and we do not double book appointments. If you need to postpone your appointment, you are required to give at least 48 hours advance notice.
You may not cancel a Monday appointment on the weekend. If you discover that you will not be able to make to your appointment at the last minute, just contact us before your appointment and we will be able to convert your appointment to a virtual appointment or telephone consult.
A cancellation fee of $125 will be charged for all appointments that are canceled without at least 48 hours notice as well as any missed appointments. This will be charged automatically to the payment on file.
