Policies

Confidentiality

I regard the information you share with me with the greatest respect. The privacy and confidentiality of our conversations and my records is a privilege of yours and is protected by state law and my profession’s ethical guidelines except for a few circumstances. What you share with me remains confidential until you provide a release to talk with someone else. There are some exceptions to confidentiality that I am required by law to follow. I cannot guarantee confidentiality legally and/or ethically (1) when I believe you intend to harm yourself or another person and, (2) when I believe a child or elder person has been or will be abused or neglected.

Sessions

Each session typically lasts 60 minutes.
A 24-hour advanced notice is required for cancellations in order to avoid a cancellation fee.

Rates

Session fee: $165.00

Insurance

I am an “In-Network Provider” for Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Carolinas Behavioral Health Alliance.
I would be an “Out-of-Network Provider” for all other insurance companies. I will give you a receipt which you can use to file with your insurance carrier for “out-of-network” benefits.

Your insurance policy is a personal and private purchase. Some insurance companies will cover Out-Patient Behavioral Health Services and some will not. Please check with your insurance company to determine whether my services are covered by your plan prior to our first meeting. Please note that you are responsible for all fees incurred in the event your insurance policy does not pay benefits.

All co-pays, deductible amounts, or self-pay fees for service are payable at the time of service.

Method of Payment

Cash, checks made payable to Linda Smith. Zelle, and Credit Cards are preferred methods of payment.

My clients have requested that I offer a payment option via credit card for their convenience. I now can offer that option through the use of Square (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express) for the convenience of my clients. There is a processing fee for all credit card charges.
