Insurance Information

I am currently a provider for the following insurance companies:  CIGNA (both HMO and PPO), Anthem BC/BS Federal, Anthem BC/BS Virginia, and Anthem Healthkeepers.  

I am not a Tricare Prime provider and effective June 1, 2015, I am no longer accepting assignment for new Tricare Standard patients.  This means if you have Tricare Prime (or Standard), you would need to pay for services in full and file the insurance receipt I will give you to Tricare for them to reimburse you.  If you can get a referral from your PCM, they may reimburse you at a higher rate.  However, they can also decline to authorize continued therapy.  

Please note that I am not a provider for CareFirst, Magellan, United Healthcare, MAMSI, Optimum Choice, Great West , Kaiser,Medicare, Medicaid, or Aetna.  

If you have out-of-network benefits, you may be able to get reimbursed by your insurance company, though this does not apply to Care First.  If you want to use your CareFirst insurance, contact Psychological Life Skills and Associates at 703-490-0336.
