Additional Paperwork Requests:

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over seven years of experience serving at-risk youth, I am familiar with providing documentation of client’s progress for the Department of Social Services (DSS) and court hearings. I have experience in providing reports to the Fresno County DSS regarding client treatment progress and experience in collaborating with teams in providing Intensive Care Coordination (ICC) services for Katie A. Subclass Members. I am eager and willing to collaborate with existing service providers at client’s request once proper releases to release/obtain information are completed.

Fees for additional reports:

Treatment summary letters/progress reports:

  • Progress reports or treatment summary letters can be written at request of the responsible party at the rate of $55 per document.

Fees for court appearances such as testimony or expert witness:

While therapists do their best to maintain our client’s confidentiality by remaining out of the courtroom whenever possible, there are times when it become necessary to participate in a court hearing either at a client or judge’s request.

Tailwinds Therapy maintains the scheduled fees to cover the potential costs of missed work to attend court on behalf of a client or case:

$1200 per diem rate for each court day and additional $120/hr rate for the time spent preparing documentation for court.

Paying for sessions:

Payments are due in full at the time services are rendered and can be paid using cash, check, or credit/debit.

At Tailwinds Therapy we use HIPAA compliant paperless systems for documentation of services and note taking. Within these systems we are able to accept debit/credit card payments in a secure manner through the client portal.

At this time, Tailwinds Therapy is a private pay service that does not bill insurance directly. If you would like to use your insurance we welcome you to contact your insurance provider prior to starting treatment to ask about your out of network benefits. If you do qualify for out-of-network benefits, your therapist can provide you will a super-bill at the end of session to present to your insurance to seek reimbursement. A super-bill is an itemized receipt for mental health services that includes a mental health diagnosis code and treatment code that your insurance will process to bill for services. At the time of your session you pay the full session fee using cash, check, or credit/debit and then you submit the super-bill to your insurance provider. Once they approve the claim they will send reimbursement based on what is available through your out-of-network benefits.

Health insurance varies greatly from plan-to-plan.

Please call your provider to learn about the extent and limits of your coverage for mental health if you plan to use out-of-network benefits.

Questions you should ask include:

  • What is my coverage for outpatient mental health?
  • What is the reimbursement rate for an out-of-network provider?
  • How many sessions are covered per calendar year?
  • What is my deductible and how much has been met?
