Benefits of Cash-Only

More Interaction

  • With no red tape or extensive paperwork to file for insurance, more time can be devoted to interacting with the patient directly.
  • More time spent with the patient = more time to determine the right treatment option.

Fast, Effective Treatment

  • Most insurance companies require, on average, 8 weeks’ trial time for medication.
  • Instead of jumping through insurance hoops, you can begin the proposed treatment option right away.
  • If a treatment option doesn’t work for you, the trial time does not apply to you in order to switch gears.

Added Confidentiality

  • Confidentiality should never be a concern when it comes to your mental health. Your mental health is a top priority, no matter your profession, religion, or family situation.
  • Cash-pay provides patients an added layer of security and privacy, with no unwanted insurance inquiries or claims.
