Health Insurance Plans

Participating Insurance Coverages for patients receiving services from Livingston Psychological Services

Livingston Psychological Services is a registered provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield plans which include: BCBS Traditional; BCBS PPO; Blue Care Network and Blue Cross Complete. Additional Plans include: United Health Care; Aetna; Cigna; Priority Health; and Health Plus/HAP.

Many Health Care Plans allow their policy holders to seek services from “Out-of- Network” providers. Make certain that your Health Care Plan allows for “Out-of- Network” providers in those cases where Livingston Psychological Services is not one of their designated providers.

NOTE: Some Health Care Plans are known as HMO’s which mean they have a designated pool of professional health care providers from which they expect their policy holders to choose. It is the responsibility of the Health Care Plan policy holder to check with their respective health care policy to determine whether Livingston Psychological Services is covered by their Health Care Plan.

Service Fees

1). Please submit your Health Plan Insurance information online at www.livpsych.com. Also, a copy of your insurance card and Driver’s License will be made at your first session.

2). It is the patient’s primary responsibility to understand their own Health Plan benefits. Those benefits will also be confirmed by Livingston Psychological Services.

3). Payment with regard to deductible and co-pay fees are expected at the time services are rendered.

Note: Patients are expected to provide a credit card number to assist with the payments of deductibles, co-pays, sessions not covered by insurance, and missed appointment fees. Credit Cards will never be charged without the patient’s notification.

4). Missed Appointments: The cancelation of an appointment must be made the day prior to the scheduled appointment. Missed appointments where the patient failed to cancel the day prior or earlier, will incur a “missed appointment fee” of $65.00.

5). Re-scheduling an appointment the day prior to the original appointment date will not incur any fees.

It is very important that each new patient reads and understands the meaning and importance of the above “Service Fees” schedule.
