Payment and fees

We strive to make mental health care as accessible and affordable as possible. We provide private-pay patients with detailed receipts to submit for possible out-of-network reimbursement.

All patients maintain a current credit card authorization on file with Baywell. This information is stored securely and used to pay the patient portion of appointment charges at the time of service.

We respectfully require 48 hours’ (two business days) notice for appointment cancellations. Late cancellations and missed sessions incur a fee.

Please contact our office for the current fee schedule, in accordance with the No Surprises Act of 2022. Our fees are set based on the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and our insurance contracts.
