Nurtured Well, LLC is considered an “Out of Network” provider. We will give you a receipt (superbill) with a billing code and diagnosis that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Unfortunately, we can not guarantee that you will be reimbursed nor the amount. You can call your insurance company and discuss reimbursement prior to scheduling an appointment. I suggest the Reimbursify app for submitting superbills to insurance. Please note that you may not submit superbills to Medicare or Medicaid.
Why pay out of network when I have insurance?
You will know exactly how much it will cost.
It may seem daunting and expensive. However, this way you avoid all hidden fees. You will know exactly what you are paying instead of worrying about deductibles and co-pays. This also prevents us from charging for extra things like phone calls between appointments, medication refills, or filling out paperwork. Most other Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners and Psychiatrists charge for theses services.
It will allow us to give you the care you need.
Insurance based clinics must abide by the care plans the insurance company approves. They determine how often you can be seen and how long the appointment should be. For instance, if they feel you only need treatment once a month, but you would like to come more often, we would have to deny that request.
Processing claims, negotiating with insurance companies, and tracking payments are all time consuming. We would rather spend that time with you! Lastly, in order for us to show up at our best we need to know we are cared for. Insurance companies can take months to pay out. Likely, you get paid bi weekly and we want to get paid with the same regularity. They can also “clawback” payments. This means that years after the payment is made, they can ask for it back. We simply can not work at our best under those circumstances.
Your privacy is protected.
By paying out of network, it becomes your decision how much your insurance company knows about your mental health.
How many appointments do you think I’ll need?
If you are seeking only medication, we typically see you monthly or bi weekly until you and your PMHNP feel your medication and dose are correct, then we typically switch to quarterly. Of course, you can come more often than that at any time!
If you are seeking therapy, then we meet weekly or bi weekly. Once you have achieved your goals we can meet monthly if you desire.
Do you offer discounts/free care?
We have a set number of “pro-bono” (free) slots open per month. Unfortunately, they are currently full but will update this site when there is an opening.
This system allows us to offer you extras.
We are the only private women’s mental health clinic in Maryland that offers complimentary child care. Of course, it is on hold due to Covid but will be brought back once it is safe. Your mental health is contingent on so many things beyond medication and therapy. To that end, we partner with local businesses to offer services, products, or programs that we feel are beneficial. Lastly, you will receive, at minimum, a quarterly newsletter with a guided meditation, reading tips, and other advice.
Good Faith Estimate of the No Surprises Act
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy and psychiatric services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy and psychiatry services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
