A. Elizabeth Deeths, LMFT is an independent, private, fee for service provider of psychotherapy. As such, she does not receive any public monies to provide therapy. She is not affiliated with any charity, group or insurance company, although she may be a preferred provider for some managed care organizations.

B. Payment/copayment is expected at the time of services rendered, unless other arrangements have been made. Cash, check or credit card is the only type of payment accepted.

C. If I am a preferred provider for your insurance, this does not guarantee payment. Ultimately, if your insurance or managed care organization does not pay for your treatment visits, you the patient are responsible for the cost of therapy. Often, a patient believes (s)he is covered for therapy when (s)he is not, or the coverage is more limited than the patient believed. Elizabeth Deeths, LMFT will make determined and reasonable effort to collect from your insurance company or managed care group. You understand and agree that you, the patient, are responsible to pay the therapy bill if the insurance company or managed care company refuses to pay for any reason.
