my health insurance plan cover the cost of treatment?
You must read your contract or call your insurance
plan office to find out the details about health
insurance benefits and the extent of psychiatric
services covered by your plan. Most health plans
cover some portion of evaluations, consultation
and treatment services provided by a Psychiatrist.
However, benefits and coverage for mental health
treatments are frequently limited or restricted
by insurance plans. Dr. Sears provides all the
necessary paperwork to assist you in obtaining
coverage from your insurance company. Many fee-for-service
providers such as Blue Cross will reimburse approximately
50-80% of charges. Payment is requested at the
close of each session and may be in the form of
cash, check or credit card.
