The first appointment will depend on the provider you see and their availability. We try to accommodate urgent visits, however some providers may not be providers for your insurance plan or EAP.
*At this time, we cannot accept EAP referrals.
It is office policy to give 24 hours notice of an appointment that cannot be attended. If this is not done, a fee equivalent to reimbursement for a full session will be assessed and must be paid prior to next visit. It is required that valid credit cards remain on file for these charges.
After a client's first visit, they will use the online scheduling system which will allow 24/7 access to making, changing or canceling appointments, as well as a ledger and online payment availability.
Each visit is 45 minutes and is scheduled on the hour. On-going, you will assess progress with your counselor and you will both decide the length of treatment and frequency of visits based on completion of goals. Initially, appointments are weekly and decreased as symptom relief is present.
For children entering into treatment, it is important that both parents consent to counseling and are aware of treatment plan and goals. For co-parents, it is office practice for each to complete a form prior to visit, but both do not need to be present.
We are NOT in network providers for BCBS, Florida Blue or its subsidiaries. You will be charged the self pay rate at each visit. It is possible to have your claim billed to your insurance, however any payment received from BCBS will be a credit for a future visit and full pay is expected at each visit. You can call the customer service number on your card to inquire about out of network benefits you may have.
It is possible to see a licensed provider at ES Counseling with Tricare insurance as retired or a family member. There is typically a nominal deductible to meet prior to paying your co-insurance rate due to the Out of Network Preferred status of the office. Each member plan varies, so it is suggested you call your insurance and inquire about specific details on your financial responsibility. It is not usual for Active Duty to obtain authorization for our office unless your primary provider at the base/hospital submits the authorization specifically for the provider.
We currently offer in-person and teletherapy visits for our clients. Before requesting teletherapy visits, it is important that you are informed of your insurance coverage for those visits as teletherapy access changes from plan to plan. You can call the customer service number on your insurance card to inquire about your specific coverage. If you choose teletherapy, it is requested that you have a secure, fast-speed internet connection, privacy, quiet environment and access to our patient portal for each session. For those under 18 years old, it is preferred that an adult is present or home during the visits to assist with any technology or connection issues.
Clients may familiarize themselves with the forms below, however with the exception of the Intake form and Co-Parenting Therapy Agreement necessary to schedule, clients must complete forms via the patient portal once appointment has been scheduled.
