My fee for individual and family sessions is $165.00. Payment is due at the time of service unless we have made alternative arrangements or I have agreed to bill your insurance directly. This fee is subject to periodic increases and I will provide you with 30 days notice of fee changes. If I am billing insurance directly, typically clients are responsible for a $10 or $20 co-pay per session. All therapy sessions are 53 minutes in length unless otherwise indicated. Any requested phone calls or written reports requested on your behalf beyond the scope of scheduling or coordinating appointments in between our scheduled times will be billed at an hourly rate of $165 in 15-minute increments. Please note that phone calls and written reports will not be reimbursed nor covered by insurance plans. For families wishing to utilize adoption support, I will work directly with the state and can communicate with you about this process.
You may have insurance for mental health care. At this time, I am accepting insurance for those within the First Choice Health Network (which sometimes can be applied to other plans) and with Premera Blue Cross. Before we begin our work together, if it appears I am in-network, I ask that you contact your insurance provider and confirm that Kathryn Stallman of Arbor Place Therapy is a contracted provider for your particular plan. I also recommend that you inquire about the confidentiality of your records in regards to insurance as the billing of your plan will require a diagnosis. If you have another type of insurance, I am considered an out-of-network provider. I can accept personal checks, credit, or cash for payment and can provide a detailed receipt for you (called a Superbill) which you can use to submit claims to your insurance for reimbursement. In either case (in-network versus out-of-network) I recommend you contact your insurance company directly before our first session, discuss your coverage with your insurance company, inquire about your deductible, the need for pre-authorization if that applies, and your co-pays and the rate of reimbursement you can expect if I am billing as an out-of-network provider.
No Surprises Act: Good Faith Estimates
Effective January 1st, 2022, the No Surprises Act, Title 45 Section 149.610 of the Federal Regulations, has created new obligations for healthcare providers, facilities, plans, and insurers that are intended to protect patients from receiving unexpected or “surprise” medical bills. One obligation under this Act is for healthcare providers to provide all uninsured and self-pay clients with a Good Faith Estimate of expected charges. You may ask for this estimate when scheduling services, and you have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate at least 1 business day before beginning services. You also have the right to dispute any bills that are at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate.
