BEFORE YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
New clients will need to fill out and submit the intake paperwork prior to your first session. Filling out the paperwork ahead of time allows you to have more time for therapy in your first session. You will receive your Intake paperwork after you are matched with a therapist.
Initial intake appointments take 50 minutes to 1.5 hours, as do all trauma therapy sessions. Appointments are usually scheduled weekly and on a regular basis until you have accomplished the majority of your goals and other arrangements are made.
No Surprise Act for Good Faith Estimates
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Please note the Healthy Strategies does not provide medical tests, prescribe medications, drugs, or supplements, provide equipment or hospital services.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item.
- You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
