    Noelle,

     

    I have some questions regarding out of network billing. Would you mind speaking with me to compare notes?

    Hi,
    Sorry it took so long to reply. Basically I did some research and learned that the only reason that insurance was paying so high is because my old practice was billing at that rate.  Even though they were paying, I could never justify that my services were worth that rate- so ultimately I found out what other therapist in the area were billing at, and found an amount that was same or comparable. I also learned that it's bad practice if not worse to regularly be writing off deductibles regardless if you have a contact or not.
    I hope that helps!
    Noelle
