I have MediCare or Medi/Medi, do you accept that?Only Dr Hybarger can accept MediCare patients or Medi/Medi patients.
What about my deductible and copayment?Copayments are due at the time services are rendered.
If you have not met your annual deductible, you are responsible for all fees until your deductible is met.
Will you bill our insurance for us?Yes, we will bill your insurance for you. We will submit the bill to your insurance and accept assignment. Your insurance company will send us the payment directly.
My insurance card is one of the ones listed above, are you a provider?The insurance industry is undergoing a lot of changes. The insurance company whose logo is on your card is typically your medical insurance. Behavioral health may have been carved out to a different company under your plan. For example, if your card says Blue Shield, you may have mental health benefits under Magellan. If your mental health benefit is provided by Psycare, you may not be covered for our clinic.
If your insurance card lists a special number to call for mental health, it is a good sign that behavorial health is carved out to another company. It is best to call that number to find out who covers behavioral health to determine if we are providers before you set an appointment.
Do I have to pay if I miss my appointment?You are responsible for paying for missed sessions.
Do you charge for reports or letters?
Reports are charged at the hourly rate of $150.
