Fees & Insurance

In my practice, payment is due at the time services are provided. If you have a PPO or POS plan I will be happy to provide a statement that will let you seek reimbursement, and assist you with that process.

As a member of the medical staff at UCSF I am automatically listed as an HMO provider for many insurance plans. This has caused some confusion. While in theory I can see and bill HMO patients at UCSF, in practice I do not see individual patients at the UCSF campus.

For various reasons, I no longer accept HMO referrals at my private practice.

My fees are in line with community standards, and include normal communications by phone or email, patient related research, and brief consultations with your other providers, as needed.

I do see a few people for a significantly reduced fee, but these people are referred by physicians or psychiatrists with whom I have an established relationship, as a professional courtesy, and the length of treatment is not open-ended.

You may contact me to discuss your situation. If your financial circumstances are a barrier to working with me, I will do my best to assist you in finding an appropriate referral.
