This is a new law is intended to protect consumers from predatory balance billing and misleading cost information by facilities and practitioners. It currently applies to all health care professionals including those in our practice. In summary: You have the right to seek services from an in-network provider. As noted on our Insurance/Payment page not all our practitioners are in network with all insurances. If you are choosing to receive services from an out of network provider you waive some federal rights by acknowledging that you agree to pay the full fee-for-service and/or utilize an out-of-network benefit rather than the in-network benefit that may be less expensive but available to you only with a different (in-network) provider. All potential clients who call to schedule an intake will receive a verbal explanation of our fees and a good faith estimate of the cost of their services. Please call us at 360.259.7179 or schedule and initial consultation at https://bridgesandboundaries.clientsecure.me to discuss our services, rates, and insurance utilization options.
