Axes

Axes offers some of the most comprehensive and clear-cut health insurance policies available, and I proudly accept patients that have Axes as their insurance provider.

Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by calling your insurance company and asking the following questions immediately after our first phone consult : (Call me back after to speak with your insurance company so we can determine your fees)

  • Does my insurance cover Out of Network mental health services CPT code 90791 and 90837?

  • What is my deductible and has it been met for the year?

  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?

  • What % is my coinsurance responsibility and how much % does the insurance cover after the deductible has been met?

  • Do I need any prior authorization?

  • What is your electronic payor ID and address for the claims?

Please submit Insurance Information - Form* after you obtain answers to the questions listed above from your insurance company. (*Download the forms and send them to me over email: gpatelcounseling@gmail.com). Depending on your insurance company, also "authorize" me and put me on your file to speak to them so I can call them for further information if needed to avoid any delays. Call me back after you speak with your insurance so we can determine your fees.
