Health Savings Spending Accounts/ Flexible Spending Accounts Accepted

The Sparrow Center is now accepting payments from health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts for therapy. Please contact our office for further details. 

What is a Superbill?

A Superbill is a form completed by your mental health provider that allows patients to be reimbursed directly from their health insurance companies. A superbill is a document that contains all of the information necessary for an insurance company or other third party to make a decision on reimbursement for health expenses incurred by a client. It is not a receipt. It is not an invoice. It is not a claim. A superbill is similar to a claim that you’d send an insurance company. Basically, clients would pay the full service fee and then seek reimbursement from their insurance provider. The Sparrow Center will aid clients in contacting their insurance providers and determining their reimbursement rates prior to the start of services. 

• Note: A superbill does not guarantee that an insurance provider will pay for the services provided. Each insurance plan is different, being reimbursed our full fee is dependent upon each client’s insurance. 

Cancellations/No-Shows

Please remember to cancel or reschedule your session 24 hours in advance. You will be responsible for a $20 cancellation fee, if cancellation is not deemed an emergency and is within 24 hours from the time of service. This policy applies to Cancellations, No-Shows and Re-scheduled sessions. A cancellation/no show fee is necessary because a time commitment is made to you and is held exclusively for you. If you are late for a session, you may lose some of that session time.

Returned Checks

A $10.00 service charge will be charged for any checks returned for any reason for special handling.
