Erica offers limited slots for online telehealth appointments. Due to online teletherapy sessions not being conducive to every issue or individual client, you will need to discuss with Erica first about whether teletherapy sessions would be a good fit for you and your needs. Please be aware that due to state licensing board regulations, Erica can only provide teletherapy services to people residing in the state of Texas.
If you are fully vaccinated for COVID19, you are no longer required to wear a mask in the lobby, office, or therapy room. You of course may still wear one if you choose to. If you are not fully vaccinated for COVID19, our office is still requiring unvaccinated clients to wear masks both in the lobby and in the therapy room at all times.
In addition, clients are asked to practice social distancing when waiting in the lobby. Finally, hand sanitizer is placed throughout the office for your use. As a precaution, if anyone attending the session has a fever of 99 or higher or symptoms of illness, you must reschedule your appointment or continue your appointment via telehealth.
GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE NOTICE
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, the “No Surprises Act,” you have a right to receive a “good faith estimate” explaining how much your therapy services will cost. Healthcare providers are required to provide clients who do not have insurance or who choose not to use their insurance for therapy services with an estimate of the cost of those services.
• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total cost of therapy services.
• Make sure your therapist gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your appointment. You may also ask your therapist for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an appointment.
• 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 or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call HHS at 1-800-985-3059.
