INSURANCE

At this time, Dr. Pentzien's services are considered out-of-network for insurance plans. While she does not work directly with insurance or other third party payers, she is able to provide a receipt of services (super bill) to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement once your assessment is complete. Whether your insurance provider will cover the costs for assessment services by out-of-network providers depends on your insurance plan.

 

To determine coverage, please contact your insurance company directly and carefully ask them the following questions:

  • Do my benefits cover mental or behavioral health?

  • What is my deductible and has it been met?

  • Is approval required by my primary care physician?

  • Is pre-authorization required before I see my provider?

  • What is my co-payment or co-insurance costs for psychological testing?

GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your 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 healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. 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. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
