Investing in your Mental Health

Mind/Body Institute is an out-of-network provider for ALL insurance companies and cannot bill insurance directly on your behalf.  

However, we are a contracted provider with Headway which allows you to use your insurance benefits for INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPY services only.  All other services provided are considered an out of pocket expense and payment is due in full at time of service. 

Headway’s mission is to increase access to affordable, quality mental health care. To do this, we partner with providers to make it possible for them to treat you through your insurance plan. Headway makes it easy for you to focus on your care while they handle all the admin and insurance work. Your cost per session is based on your specific mental health benefit within your insurance plan.

Insurances accepted: Aetna, Oxford, United Healthcare, Oscar Health, BCBS of Massachusetts (Virtual Network), and Horizon BCBS of New Jersey (Virtual Network), Cigna, and Anthem BCBS of Ohio.

Individual Psychotherapy Services

No Surprises Act - Good Faith Estimate

You may obtain a Good Faith Estimate of our charges upon request prior to scheduling with your therapist at Mind/Body Institute. 

The No Surprises Act is a federal law which provides you with the right to a good faith estimate of the cost of services at our practice.  However, Ohio licensing board rules require us to provide you with the actual cost of our charges in a written informed consent form to which you must agree prior to our providing services.  That will be available to you prior to you being seen for services and prior to any billing.  In most cases, it is impossible to estimate how many sessions you will need, and that will not be determined until your concerns are evaluated and will also vary based on the progress that you make, which depends in part on your efforts with the process.  You will be free to discontinue services at any time or the services may otherwise be terminated in accordance with the informed consent form language.

Although the No Surprises Act says that you may initiate a dispute process if the actual charges are substantially in excess of the Good Faith Estimated charges (i.e. if you are charged $400 more than the estimated cost for a session or for the total estimate provided), that is unlikely to happen and would be a violation of Ohio state licensing board rules, since you will be agreeing up front to actual charges per session prior to being seen.  Dispute information is available upon request, however.  Any changes to our fees will require a change in the informed consent form fees, which you must agree to prior to having them go into effect, otherwise the fees will remain in effect for 12 months.
