In the District of Columbia

We offer secure video telehealth services to those living in the District, or those visiting for extended periods (e.g. a student or on a long-term assignment). 

Insurance

Important:  Some insurance companies limit your care to only their privately owned telehealth service. We don't always know this until after we submit your bill (since they can change it any time they want). It's up to you to keep apprised of changes to your coverage options. > Aetna - (most plans)  > BlueCross BlueShield plans (most plans, such as Federal, Anthem, CareFirst, etc.) > Cigna (most plans) > Optum (most commercial plans) - GEHA - United Healthcare (most commercial  plans) - UMR - Harvard Pilgrim - Oxford - etc Please note that insurance companies have many sub-plans and networks. If you want to ensure your plan is covered, you can check with your insurance, or we can verify once you sign a privacy statement. Just let us know.

Self Pay

Feel free to reach out for the current rates for this location. We do offer a sliding scale if we don't take your insurance based on need. You can contact us for further details if you'd like. We accept most major credit cards as payment and will provide a "super bill" to anyone seeking services without insurance.

Payment:

Copays are due at the time of the appointment. If you have a deductible, you may be asked for a deposit at the start of the appointment. Self-pay appointment payment is due at the beginning of all appointments. (For Self-Pay - we provide you with a "superbill"). We do not allow patients to carry a balance. All fees must be paid before the next appointment. We accept payment by all forms of digital payment, including FSA/HSA cards (with a Visa or Mastercard logo). Current patients who need a payment plan can request a review and it may be arranged.
