Dr. Rivers-Bulkeley is a non-participating provider, which means that he is not affiliated with a commercial insurance carrier or managed care plan. Payment is expected at the time of service, and we accept checks, all major credit cards, debit cards and cash.
Most plans pay out-of-network benefits that reimburse patients for a portion of the doctor's fees. This information is available by calling the mental-health-benefits phone number on the back of the insurance card. Some plans require preauthorization prior to the appointment. Dr. Rivers-Bulkeley provides a specially coded receipt for each session that the patient may file with their plan. The standard HCFA-1500 Health Insurance Claim Form required by some Third-Party payors is available for free download on the "Useful Tools" page of this website. Be aware that choosing not to file with your plan preserves the strictest level of confidentiality regarding your treatment.
Psychiatric treatment qualifies for payment through a Flexible Spending Account (IRS Section 125 Cafeteria Plan) or Health Savings Account using pre-tax income.
We are not allowed to publish our fees but we will quote them over the telephone:
