Billing

Billing and Fees
Dr. Guerrieri believes that time and face-to-face interactions with her patients are important factors in the healing process and, therefore, Well-Minded, LLC, is a Fee-For-Service practice. This means that Dr. Guerrieri is not paneled with insurance companies and does not process or accept monies from insurance companies. Payment is due at time of service. However, patients can submit the receipts from Dr. Guerrieri’s services for reimbursement by their insurance companies.  Most of Dr. Guerrieri’s patients receive 30%-80% reimbursement by their insurance plans. Patients are provided a comprehensive receipt after each appointment that they can submit to their insurance companies for reimbursement. New and existing patients are strongly encouraged to contact their insurance providers for coverage terms and single-case agreements.  Payment is due at time of service and no refunds are issued for rendered services.

How do I find out if my insurance company will reimburse me for the appointments?
Insurance companies use two codes to determine what they will pay for a medical service: a billing (CPT) code and a diagnosis code (that starts with a letter of the alphabet).  Below is an example of a typical diagnostic and billing code pair used by Well-Minded, LLC, for provided services.  Contact your insurance company in advance of your appointment to find out how much they will reimburse for the following billing/diagnostic codes:

Sample diagnostic code:

  • F41.1 (generalized anxiety disorder)

Sample billing (CPT) codes:

  • Office outpatient (OP) New Patient Visit (NPV) codes (60-90 minutes): 99204; 90838; 90785
  • Office OP evaluation and management (E/M) codes for established (45-55 minutes): 99215; 90838; 90785
  • Office OP E/M codes (20-25 minutes): 99214; 90833
  • Office OP E/M code (10-15 minutes): 99213
