I currently DO NOT accept insurance. Here is WHY. If you plan to seek reimbursement from your insurance, health savings plan or Employee Assistance Program (EAP) after receiving services, please clarify with your insurance/employer the following before starting sessions:


‏    •    Benefits and scope of coverage
‏    •    Annual deductible
‏    •    Number of sessions allowed under coverage and process to appeal for more sessions
‏    •    Coverage amount per session
‏    •    Whether pre-authorization is required and whether referral is necessary

If you are hoping to get some money back for sessions, as allowed by certain insurance providers, funds and healthcare programs, I can provide a "superbill" to assist you. A superbill is an itemized form which details services provided to a client. It is the main data source for creation of a healthcare claim, which will be submitted by the client directly to their healthcare program for consideration for reimbursement of part or all of the session fee.

The system I use for appointments, billing and note taking has several advantages, but it is not without some shortcomings. With COUPLES appointments, two clients will share billing. The client making the appointment will be considered the primary client. The primary client will be billed for the session and all billing documents will be in this client's name. There isn't a way to change the primary client for an appointment after it's created and saved. 

For couple’s appointments, please select COUPLE from the drop-down menu and enter your partner, if allowed, as the second client. Only one member of the couple can receive an appointment reminder. 

If you prefer to alternate payments between partners for sessions in the future or modify your payment schedule in some way, it is your responsibility to set up a way sort this out. Some partners choose to reimburse the primary client listed on the appointment. Others bring payment in the form of a check or cash at the time of the appointment so I can record who pays for the session. 

The client portal I use for scheduling, charting and billing, SimplePractice, underwent one of the most extensive and strict payment security certification standards in the world—Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This process requires merchants and service providers that store, process, or transmit customer-payment card data to adopt information security controls and processes to ensure data integrity. Credit card data is stored in the SimplePractice system and processed by Stripe—both of which are Level 1 PCI Data Security Standard Certified.

For clients referred by California Relationship Centers or its affiliates, your scheduling and billing will be handled by Acuity, and initiated via the following link, https://sanfranciscosextherapy.com/jennifer-hampton-lcsw

Please let me know if you have further questions or concerns. 

Payment due at time of service unless otherwise indicated. I generally keep to a 72 hour cancellation policy.
