These appointments are billed at a 90-minute minimum.
Appointments may not necessarily be face-to-face time with patients, but also include administrative time with staff, outside providers, and community.
For Case Coordinator appointments, off-site visit fees are 150% usual rates.
|Initial Evaluation Fees||Available upon request.|
|Cancellation Policy||The scheduling of an appointment involves the reservation of a clinician’s time specifically for you. If you need to cancel or change an appointment, please inform us at least 48 business hours in advance, otherwise you will still be billed and payment is required. For Nursing shifts, cancellation must occur 5 business days in advance, or you will be billed.|
|Medication Refills||Prescriptions are provided in the office during appointments. Medications are not ordinarily refilled over the telephone, except in the case of emergency. You will receive a prescription valid for a sufficient period of time until your next appointment. You are, of course free, to call CNS at any time if you have problems with medications. Certain prescriptions, for example stimulants, permit no refills whatsoever and you will be required to have a minimum of one appointment monthly for those prescriptions. It is your responsibility of ensuring that you have an appointment scheduled before your medications run out.|
|Insurance Reimbursement||Our clinicians do not process payments from health insurance companies; claims may be submitted to your insurance company for them to reimburse you as their policy allows. CNS is considered an “Out-of-Network” provider. It is your option whether to seek reimbursement from your insurance company for our appointments. CNS provides “superbills”, which you can then, in turn, submit to your insurance. These contain sensitive information revealing your diagnoses and diagnostic codes. In order to protect your confidentiality, CNS will not disclose any other information to your health insurance carrier. This may result in the denial of payment from them for services rendered to you.|
|Payment||Payment is expected at the time of service. The only form of payment accepted by CNS is credit card. Overdue charges will incur a 5% compounding monthly fee. Once service has been rendered, fees are not refundable under any circumstances.|
