Dr. Saraiya Holistic Psychiatry

Payment & Fees

Payment

Payment is due at the time of service and is payable by cash, check, or credit card.

Insurance will generally cover some of my fees for any medical services including the initial evaluation, medication follow-up and psychotherapy.  How much is covered depends on your particular policy and includes factors like deductibles and co-pays, but usually is anywhere from 60% to 80%.  For policies with no out of network coverage, insurance often won’t pay you anything, but I have had patients whose insurance covers 100% of my fee (usually after a moderate deductible is met) so it’s certainly worth looking into.

I will supply you with all of the appropriate documentation so that you can get whatever your particular insurance company will pay, but as stated above, payment is due at the time of service and not contingent on insurance reimbursement.

Cancellation

I understand that my patients are busy and conflicts can arise.  If patients provide any amount of notice, I will try to fill their vacated time and if I do, will not charge for the cancellation.  HOWEVER, if I cannot fill the time and you have not provided 2 business days’ notice of cancellation (or you miss your appointment altogether) you will be charged the full fee for the session.  You should also be aware that cancellations and missed sessions cannot be billed to insurance as regular sessions.

A complete set of office policies will be provided at your Initial Evaluation.
