What is the process for setting up an appointment?
If you are interested in setting up an appointment, you can contact Dr. Baruch-Feldman either by email or by phone. After a brief phone conversation, a 1-hour consultation will be scheduled. During the consultation, you will have the opportunity to review information about yourself and/or your child and discuss treatment options. Treatment recommendations are made and a therapy schedule is then set up. Therapy sessions are generally on a weekly basis for 45 minutes.
What is the process for Psychological Testing?
If you are interested in setting up an appointment for testing, you can contact Dr. Baruch-Feldman either by email or by phone. After a brief phone conversation, a 1-hour consultation will be scheduled. During the consultation, you will have the opportunity to review background information about your child and discuss the reason for the referral. Most children are tested for 2-3 sessions for about 2-3 hours per session. All psychological evaluations include a feedback session and a written report.
Do you take insurance?
I do not accept or participate in any insurance programs. Families pay for services directly and are provided with a receipt which includes the necessary information required by insurance providers. Families then submit these receipts to their insurance companies for reimbursement.
Can I use my out-of-network benefits?
Depending on your particular insurance plan and out-of-network provider benefits, you may be reimbursed for a portion of your therapy payments. It is recommended that families call their insurance providers and obtain the following information: if they have “out of network” coverage; if a referral is required from their child’s pediatrician; what, if any, is the annual mental health deductible; what percentage of the fee will be reimbursable by the insurance company; and what is the maximum yearly allowance. You should also ask what the “usual and customary rate” is according to your insurance company as that is the rate upon which they will base their reimbursement.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept cash and check. Payment is expected at the time of service.
