Welcome!

It is time for a new approach to psychiatry! According to the CDC, about 25% of the U.S. adults have a mental illness and nearly 50% will develop a mental illness during their lifetime (CDC Mental Illness Surveillance Among Adults in the United States, 2011). Depression, anxiety, and other problems cause suffering and disrupt work, love and play. Why are so many people suffering? How is medicine responding to this health crisis?

Can I use my insurance?

Dr. Lewis does not participate in any insurance as an in-network provider. We do work with all out-of-network plans. If you have out of network benefits with your insurance we will file for reimbursement for you or provide you with all the necessary forms for you to file. Please call your insurance company to check if you have out of network benefits and ask about any deductible that you might have.

 

        • Do I have out-of-network benefits for mental health?

 

        • Do I have a deductible for mental health services?

 

        • At what rate will I be reimbursed for mental health services (the usual range is 50% to 80%)?

When you use your out of network benefits though the insurance you pay directly to the clinician and then file for reimbursement with your insurance company. Insurance companies take between two and six weeks on average to process reimbursement claims.

We can support you in this process, and are available to answer your insurance-related questions to the best of our ability.
