Payment

Payment of services is expected at each session unless arrangements have been made otherwise. I accept cash, personal check, Visa, Mastercard, and Health Savings Accounts. 

For credit card services an additional 4% will be added to your bill.

 

Insurance

I accept Excellus Blue Cross/Blue Shield at this time. All others would be private pay at this time. You may choose to submit your receipts to be considered for ‘out of network’s reimbursement. In this case, you would pay directly and at the end of each month Dr. Russell will provide a ‘superbill’ for you to submit directly to your insurance company. How much you will be reimbursed will depend on your particular plan; most PPO insurance plans reimburse 40–60% of the fee. Please contact your insurance company for specifics on out of network coverage for more information.

If using insurance, please ensure that all referrals are in place prior to sessions and bring your insurance card(s) with you at the consultation.

College Students 

Dr. Russell realizes that sometimes as a college student, you may want to see a provider who is not part of your college’s counseling center. While I do not accept insurance, a sliding scale for college students is available for a limited number of sessions.  Please call or email to discuss this possibility further.
