60-Minute Session $500.00
50-Minute Session $425.00
25-Minute Session $210.00
The initial appointment, which is a 60 minute session, is scheduled following a brief conversation by phone. Should we agree to continue to work together following the evaluation, usual appointments are either 50-minute sessions or 25-minute sessions (usually medication management). Telephone/Video appointments are billed at the same session rates indicated above. At a minimum, on-going patients are to be seen at least every three months.
Payment of Fees
All charges are due the day of service and payable by cash, check, or credit card (Visa, Master Card, Discover, American Express). Checks should be made payable to “P.A.M.L.” Late fees may apply for any outstanding balances, and interest fees of 2.0% per month will be assigned to all charges which are 60 days or older. Accounts which are delinquent may be sent to collections. There will be a processing charge for returned checks.
If you are unable to keep an appointment, please give 48 hours advance notice (weekends and holidays excluded); otherwise you will be charged for the time that was reserved for you. Be aware that insurance plans do not reimburse for missed appointment charges. You may cancel your appointment by leaving a voice-mail message at (484) 254-6363.
No Surprises Act (NSA)
In an effort to comply with the NSA, let it be known that although each patient is different, Dr. Silverberg's average patient might expect to attend an Initial Appointment with a subsequent 25-minute appointment 2-4 weeks later. Again, each patient is different but depending on stability/need you might anticipate a return 25-minute visits every 1-3 months.
Charges are due the day of service regardless of your insurance status. If you have medical insurance, it is your responsibility to file all claims for reimbursement with your insurance company. I will be happy to assist you by supplying you with bills, diagnoses, and any information required by your carrier, but payment is expected from you directly. I will fill out forms with you so you know what information is being shared. I encourage you to find out from your insurance company about your rights of privacy.
Dr. Silverberg may participate with a service that provides electronic prescriptions to most pharmacies. As part of this service, Dr. Silverberg may have access to your medication history prescribed by other healthcare providers. By virtue of being a patient of Dr. Silverberg's, you agree to his having access to this service.
