Payments & Policies
**All fees, costs and copays are due at the time of service. For your convenience your credit card on file will be processed automatically after each held session. If you do not wish to pay with your credit card on file you must present a different payment method (cash, check, alternative card) at your session. **If your insurance lapses during treatment you will be responsible for the full fee amount for held sessions. **A $30.00 service charge will be charged for any checks returned for any reason for special handling. **If a balance goes above $200 from your deductible, sessions may be held until payment is made in order to prevent the development of substantial debt in the treatment process.
Web Based Video Sessions
Web based therapy sessions are approved on a case-by-case basis and are based on therapist clinical judgment and approval. Approval is dependent on an in-person intake assessment and may be revoked at any time. At this time, due to licensing issues, clients are required to be in the State of Pennsylvania while engaging in Web Based services. Not all insurances will cover web based sessions and client agrees to pay any out of pocket costs not covered by said insurances. Payments for Web Based sessions must be paid online prior to the start of the appointment. Client will comply with ATS general web based guidelines for connection rates, locations and surroundings to ensure best practice and client confidentiality. Web Based sessions are not to be utilized on open WiFi networks for client protection. If client schedules and pays for web based sessions and does not login at the time of their appointment they will be charged in full for that appointment. If there are connection issues on ATS’s end, session will be rescheduled at client/ clinician agreed convenience. There will be a $25 cancellation fee for any Web Based session with less than 24hr notice and a $50 fee for any failed session without notice. Again these will be charged to the card on file at the end of the business day of failed session.
Attendance/ Cancellation Policy
We prioritize our clients by holding space for each person we see. When clients cancel an appointment, our clinicians offer that space to other clients who need an appointment that week. When clients cancel within 24-hours of the scheduled time or no show, other clients miss out on the opportunity to be seen. If you would like to cancel an appointment, we ask that you do so with your therapist with at least 24-hour notice. Anyone cancelling an appointment with less than a 24-hour notice will be charged $25 (to increase to $50 in January 2019). Insurance does not cover no-shows and late cancellations, so it is the client’s responsibility to pay for this. We will charge the credit card on file for no shows and cancellations within 24-hours of your scheduled session. ** If you do not have a card on file you will be responsible for that fee at your next appointment. Repeated cancellations and no show session indicate that you are not fully committed to treatment at this time. Two less-than-24 hr cancels will be considered one failed session. Two no show/no call failed sessions in a six month period will preclude your ability to reschedule with your therapist and your case will be closed at Angelus. This is necessary because a time commitment is made to you and is held exclusively for you. When you schedule and do not attend this prevents other clients in need from being able to be seen during that time frame. If you are late for a session, you may lose some of that session time.
Session Length/ Structure
The standard meeting time for psychotherapy ranges from 45-55 minutes. It is up to you, however, to determine the length of time of your sessions. Requests to change the session length needs to be discussed with your therapist in order for time to be scheduled in advance.
Minors
If you are a minor, your parents may be legally entitled to some information about your therapy. We will discuss with you and your parents what information is appropriate for them to receive and which issues are more appropriately kept confidential. For minors from ages 14-18 either the minor or the parent may request and sign for treatment regardless of the openness of the other party to participate. Prior to the age of 14 consent from both parents is needed if there is a joint custody situation. Unfortunately, we cannot provide services when one parent who has legal custody objects. We will need a copy of custody paperwork prior to your intake appointment.
Telephone Accessibility
If you need to contact your therapist between sessions, please leave a message on our agency voice mail. Our office Admin is in Monday- Friday from 12:00 PM- 4:00 PM to answer and return calls. Therapists are often not immediately available; however, we will attempt to return your call within 24 hours. Please note that Face- to-face sessions are highly preferable to phone sessions. However, in the event that you are out of town, sick or need additional support, phone sessions are available. Please keep in mind that your insurance will not typically cover the cost of a phone based session; therefore, they will be billed directly to you at a fee of $25/per every 10 min and you will be responsible for the payment of this prior to your next session. If a true emergency situation arises, please call 911, Crisis at 724-652-9000 (Lawrence County) or present to any local emergency room.
Social Media Policy
Due to the importance of your confidentiality & the importance of minimizing dual relationships; we do not accept friend or contact requests from current or former clients on any social networking site (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc). We believe that adding clients as friends or contacts on these sites can compromise your confidentiality and our respective privacy. It may also blur the boundaries of our therapeutic relationship. If you have questions about this, please bring them up when we meet and we can talk more about it.
Termination
Ending relationships can be difficult. Therefore, it is important to have a termination process in order to achieve some closure. The appropriate length of the termination depends on the length and intensity of the treatment. ATS may terminate treatment after appropriate discussion with you and a termination process if your clinician determines that the psychotherapy is not being effectively used or if you are in default on payment. ATS will not terminate the therapeutic relationship without first discussing and exploring the reasons and purpose of terminating. If therapy is terminated for any reason or you request another therapist, your clinician will provide you with a list of qualified psychotherapists to treat you. You may also choose someone on your own or from another referral source. With an appropriate completed release of information we will be happy to forward your medical records to another provider of your choices to ensure continuity of care. Should you fail to schedule an appointment for three consecutive weeks, unless other arrangements have been made in advance, for legal and ethical reasons, ATS must consider the professional relationship discontinued.
