In establishing a therapy relationship there are many factors to consider. Prior to scheduling an appointment, we will spend a few minutes in an initial phone contact to determine the next steps. This time ensures, as much as possible, that you get directed to the best resource for your situation. Factors such as scheduling, the particulars of the situation needing addressed, and payment options are important considerations.

Heather Maritano, LCSW, RPT-S is a preferred provider for Anthem, SIHO, Sagamore, and IU Health Insurances. We will directly bill these companies for services on your behalf, but it is your responsibility to know the limits of your policy and the amount of payment you are responsible for at each session. Your co-pay and deductible amounts are due at the time of service. If you change insurance, your coverage may likewise change which could mean treatment is no longer covered.
If you are using insurance, please contact your carrier to make sure you understand the details of your mental health coverage and provide a copy of your insurance card at your first appointment.
You should be aware that insurance companies require me to provide them with a clinical diagnosis that remains in your insurance record permanently. In addition, your insurance company may request that your records be released to them for review, and they may deny services that you wish to receive.
