Recent changes in healthcare law mean that psychiatric visits are given equal coverage to other physician visits by health insurers. Dr. Herbst is an approved out of network provider for most insurers. Although payment is due at the time of service, the office will provide you with the proper forms needed to obtain insurance reimbursement. Reimbursement will vary depending on the plan, but most commonly is 50% for out of network providers such as Dr. Herbst.
Cash, checks, and all major credit cards accepted for payment.
To avoid charges for missed appointments, we ask that you give us at least 24-hour notice if you wish to cancel your appointment. No shows and cancellations with less than 24 hours notice are a significant problem for our small practice. Many practices overbook on purpose so that no-shows and cancellations won't limit access for other patients as well as cause a financial hardship for the practice. When it comes to no shows and last minute canellations we have three choices: (1) a strict policy; or (2) overbooking leading to long wait times at our office; or (3) charging for no shows. We feel the strict policy is the best fit for our practice and we are proud of our ability to run on time. If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be responsible for the standard cost of the visit.
