Our office and providers within it are not an in-network provider for any insurance plan or HMO provider panel. There are many reasons for this. First and foremost, client confidentiality and privacy is of the utmost importance. Often, insurance companies will collect information for their future use, information which may or may not be relevant to your work at Amend Psychological Services, PSC. Because we work independently, no information leaves this office unless specifically requested by clients, or unless we are legally obligated to release information, such as in cases of abuse. Working independently on a fee-for-service basis allows us to use our professional judgment to serve clients as our clients and we agree is appropriate, not as dictated or regulated by an insurance company or health management organization (HMO). In addition, this decreases the time and paperwork requirements for the practice and keeps office costs (and, in turn, fees) from rising. Ultimately, we believe that working this way allows for a more positive and hassle-free experience.
If you do have insurance that may reimburse some of your costs, you will be able to obtain a receipt containing all of the necessary information so that you can work with your insurance company to get reimbursed for any out-of-network benefits you may have. Your insurance company has an obligation to you, none to Amend Psychological Services, PSC.
