Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it, and have I met it yet?
  • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

Payment

I accept cash, commercial insurances, Medicaid, and all major credit cards as forms of payment. Renfro & Associates, LLC will make every reasonable effort to secure payment for services in accordance with its fee schedules and to collect appropriate reimbursement for health services from Title XVIII of the SSA (Medicare Program), Medicaid, CHIP, other public assistance programs, and other third-party payers used by clients. Although Renfro & Associates, LLC cannot require patients to enroll in public or private insurance or related third party coverage, Renfro & Associates, LLC will educate clients on options available to them based on their eligibility for insurance or other third-party coverage. During the application process for the program, the client will receive the sliding fee discount if they qualify based on the income guidelines. No patient who refuses to apply for any public or private insurance program will be denied access to Renfro & Associates, LLC’s sliding fee program.

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.
