*special needs sliding scale is available upon request by discussing with Dr. Comin at the time of your first session.
Payment is required in full at the time of service for new and ongoing patients. You will receive a receipt at the time of each session if you are paying cash in full for services rendered and at the end of the month you will receive a super bill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement if you are utilizing your PPO. If you are using your insurance benefits to pay for your sessions your co-payments are due at the time of each session.
Dr. Comin prefers personal checks or cash as payment. Credit cards can be used if desired.
Dr. Comin provides high quality, individualized psychological services. Her practice is not compatible with managed care's emphasis on brief symptom reduction. Therefore, Dr. Comin does
not participate in most HMO, EAP insurance panels. If requested, she will provide a statement that can be submitted directly to the insurance company for out-of-network benefits and PPO. Please be advised that to collect insurance benefits, a mental health diagnosis must be provided to the insurance company and is then part of the individual's permanent health record. To ensure maximum confidentiality, Dr. Comin strongly suggests that patients not involve their health insurance carrier in their mental health treatment.
*Please be advised that this office requires 48-hour business day notice for any cancellations except for emergencies. If you do not give 48-hour business day notification for cancelling you will be charged for the full session fee, which is based on the negotiated rate with your insurance provider or our office. Your insurance company is not responsible for paying your missed sessions.
