Here at Authentic Life Counseling, our therapists are in network with a few of the major insurance companies and EAP services. However, to confirm that your sessions will be covered by your insurance, please help us by contacting your insurance company directly prior to the first appointment to determine if they will indeed pay for your services here at ALC with your specific therapist. If it turns out that your therapist is out of network with your insurance, we would be happy to provide you with a detailed receipt (upon request) in order for you to submit to your insurance carrier for possible reimbursement.
Cancellation/No Show Fee
If you cannot make your scheduled appointment, please provide the office with 24 hour notification. If you do not notify the office within 24 hours, you will be charged full price for the session, and will be asked to pay at the time of the next session. If you cancel two sessions in a row, please know that your scheduled weekly time may be given away.
On a rare occasion, your therapist will have to miss a session due to illness, court appearance, vacation or other emergency. He/she will either notify you in advance in the rare occasion that these events occur, or the office will notify you to reschedule.
If you arrive 15 minutes or more after your scheduled time, your therapist may choose to cancel your appointment, incurring the same-day cancellation fee and rescheduling your appointment for a new time.
Cancelled Check Fee
A returned check will result in a $25 fee along with a cash payment for the session.
Your therapist will be happy to send your probation officer or lawyer a weekly update or therapy completion at no additional charge. Any filing needs beyond the typical reports (e.g., complete file printing and mailing) or any court related phone call lasting longer than 20 minutes will be charged $15.00 per occurrence.
Court Appearance Fee
$100 per hour fee includes travel time and total time at courthouse.
If your account has not been paid for more than 60 days and arrangements for payment have not been agreed upon, Authentic Life Counseling has the option of using legal means to secure the payment. This may involve hiring a collection agency or going through small claims court. If such legal action is necessary, its costs will be included in the claim. In most collection situations, the only information we release regarding a patient’s treatment is his/her name, the nature of services provided, and the amount due.
