Out of Network

It is possible that Kristi Patterson, MA, LMFT-S, LPC-S, RPT-S, ICST may be an out-of-network provider for you, and you may be able to be reimbursed for services in part or full by your insurance company.

Questions you might ask of your insurance provider-

Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
What is my deductible, and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the therapy amount covered per therapy session?
Is approval required from my health care provider?

In the event that you have and would like to use your out-of-network mental health benefits, Kristi Patterson, MA, LMFT-S, LPC-S, RPT-S, ICST will provide you with a receipt or submit out of network claims for you. 

Please note that anytime insurance is used a diagnosis must be shared with the insurance company.


Cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, and/or your health savings card are accepted for payment. Payment is taken at the beginning of each session.

Cancellation Policy
Appointments cancelled without 24 hours notice will result in a $60 late cancellation fee as insurance does not cover the cost of missed appointments and there will not be sufficient time to fill that appointment slot by another client.

Termination Policy
If a client "no shows" or cancels two times in a row, their case will be subject to closing.


Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. 
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • 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 or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
