IT’S A NEW YEAR! If you’ve been working with before Jan 1, 2023, it is important for you to complete our New Year 2023 Updated Consent form. You can find it in your client portal by clicking the brown box on the big bar on the website or this LINK. While you’re in the client portal, make sure to check for superbills that need to be submitted to your insurance company, requests for updated insurance or credit card information, and other things you might have missed.

FEE UPDATES have been posted on this site but do not go into effect until January 3, 2023. Click HERE to access the Fee & Insurance page. This information was announced via e-newsletter on December 2, 2022 but accidentally omitted Sara Bailey’s name from the list of Tier 3 clinicians whose rate is increasing to $150/session.
GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE NOTICE TO CLIENTS AND PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS: If you do not have health insurance or do not intend to file for reimbursement from your health insurance, you are legally entitled to an estimate for the total expected cost of services you will receive at Full Life. The No Surprises Act gives you the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” before you schedule any new or recurring services. Since a diagnosis is required for the Good Faith Estimate, regardless of whether you intend to submit your superbills for insurance, you may elect to “opt out” of Good Faith Estimate requirements if diagnostic privacy is a high priority for you. Your counselor will discuss this with you in your sessions, so please feel free to ask questions. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions, more information about your rights, or instructions for disputing a bill, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
