Your Relationship to Client
Insurance and Financial Policy Statement
Thank you for choosing Rock Landing Psychological Group for counseling. As part of providing high quality services, we need to clarify our financial policies. Should you have any questions regarding the practice policies, please ask a member of the staff for clarification.
If you are using your health insurance benefits, we will bill your insurance company. To do so, we need you to provide us with accurate and timely information regarding your insurance. All co-pays, deductibles, and denied payments are your responsibility. Your health insurance company may require you to make a co-payment and/or satisfy a deductible. The co-payment is determined by your health insurance company and is due at the time of service. If you have a deductible which has not been met, then the full fee is due until the deductible has been met.
I authorized a release of information to my health insurance company and I assign all benefits to Rock Landing Psychological Group.
Late Cancellation/No Show Fee
Rock Landing Psychological Group requires 24 hour notice for routine cancellations. Late cancellations and no shows will incur a $65.00 charge for a missed appointment with your therapist and a $75.00 charge for missed appointment with your psychiatrist to be paid at your next scheduled session. Please note that your health insurance company will not cover this fee. The practice has a 24 hour voice mail system to take your cancellations. Please call (757) 873-1736 and speak to a staff member or if it is after hours leave a message for he scheduling staff on the voice mail system. At the time of check out you are given a card with the date of your next scheduled appointment. Our office will make every effort to remind you of your scheduled appointment. However, it is your responsibility to be aware of your appointment. Repeated cancellations and/or missed appointments may result in being disengaged from this practice.
