Please call 816-224-6500 to inquire about your particular insurance coverage. If we are not in your network, we can provide you with the documentation your insurance company needs in order to reimburse you.
It is often helpful to contact your insurance company first to find out what your deductible and co-payment are. In this way you will have an idea of how much your insurance company will ultimately reimburse you, and what your out of pocket expenses will be before you begin treatment.
Missed Appointments and Cancellations
We have a 24 hour cancellation policy. Clients are responsible for missed appointments and late cancellations. Except in a true medical emergency or natural disaster, clients are responsible for the fee if the appointment is canceled with less than 24 hours notice or if the client does not show for the scheduled appointment. Insurance companies will not pay for missed appointment fees or late cancellation fees.
The Advantages of "Paying out of Pocket"
Many clients choose to pay for therapy from their own resources. There are many reasons one might choose to do this. When paying “out of pocket” rather than using an insurer:
Clients do not need to reveal or justify their reasons for seeking services.
Records of diagnoses and treatment are not made available to employers or others that have access to insurance information.
Clients are able to select the service provider of their choice, rather than choosing from a provider list.
