Dr. Labat does not accept insurance as payment for services. This policy ensures protection of your privacy, as insurance companies often demand highly detailed information about your history, symptoms, level of functioning, and progress in treatment in order to determine whether or not they will reimburse the clinician rendering therapeutic services. This policy also allows Dr. Labat and clients to work together to determine the course of treatment that will be most helpful, rather than leaving the decision-making to a representative of an insurance company.
Should you want to utilize your insurance benefits, the office staff at Pelts, Kirkhart and Associates provides complementary filing for your “out-of-network” benefits. If you have filed with your insurance provider and have questions, please follow up with your insurance provider directly.
Various forms of payment are accepted including check, cash, credit cards and HSA/ Flex-spend cards when services are rendered.
Health Savings Accounts and Flexible Spending Accounts: – If you have a Health Savings Account (HSA) or a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), you are generally able to pay for therapy, consultation, and psychological assessment services from such accounts. In effect, these services can be tax-deductible. Please check your specific HSA or FSA to see if any restrictions apply.
