No. Christian Counseling Center sees clients of all ages and all faiths.
We are contracted with many insurance companies to accept their fee schedules. This amount varies per company but will never be more than our billed fee. The client is responsible for any amount not paid by their insurance. The initial visit with a counselor will be $100.00 and each subsequent visit is $85.00.
We do accept most major insurance. The client is encouraged to contact their insurance company prior to their first visit to ensure that we are in network. With most insurances a better benefit is paid for using an in network provider. Unfortunately we are not contracted to accept Medicare, Medicaid, Paramount Advantage and Buckeye Community Health.
Yes. We submit all claims to the primary insurance company within one week of your visit. We will also follow up with the insurance company if payment has not been received within a reasonable time period.
We have very limited financial aid available to those who do not have insurance to help reduce the cost of services. There are forms to be filled out for this program and you can get them from your counselor or the office manager. There is no guarantee that we can offer every client assistance so it is solely based on your financial situation and what funds are available at the time of service. We do expect each of our clients to pay something towards their services.
We do expect your co-pay to be paid at each visit. We will contact your insurance company at your first visit to verify if there is a co-pay for your services. We will inform you of this. If your services are applied to your calendar year deductible you will be billed for the amount that was applied.
Bills are sent to any client with an outstanding balance the first week of each month. If you have a balance for more than 90 days further collection activity will take place. If you need to work out a payment plan please contact the office manager prior to your balance being 90 days old to put this in place and avoid collection activity.
We accept cash, check, or Visa and Mastercard. With the addition of accepting credit cards we are now able to also accept the flexible spending account debit cards that are being issued by employers.
We ask that you give a 24hr notice if you need to cancel an appointment. If you do not contact us to cancel there may be a fee of $35 for not showing to your appointment or for cancelling late.
