Your First Visit
Here are links to the forms and brochures that will need to be completed at our first meeting. If you prefer, you can download them here and read them before coming in. You can either attach the completed forms to an email and send it before we meet, or print and fill them out to bring with you to our appointment. If you prefer not to download them, please come 10-15 minutes before our appointment and I will have hard copies for you. Either way you prefer, the brochures are yours to keep as part of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountablity Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the forms are for me to keep in your file. Please wait to sign them at my office.
The cost of therapy varies depending on the provider and the insurance you have. It’s a good idea to call your insurance company to see if they will pay for my services, how much per session, and whether there will be a deductible you need to pay before any insurance benefits will be available. I will also need to make a copy of your insurance card at our first session, so please bring your card with you. Unless you have BCBS of IL, you should also bring a check to our meetings.
