Do you accept insurance?
I am a CMS recognized provider and I have CPT and ICD-10 codes for RN & IBCLC services provided for educational and care services related to perinatal, newborn and breastfeeding/lactation visits. Upon request I can supply you with a superbill once your services have been paid in full and you can submit the superbill to your insurance to request reimbursement. I am out-of-network with all insurance providers. I cannot guarantee insurance reimbursement. If your insurance company denies payment I am happy to provide an appeal letter to be submitted. Service fees are due at the time that services are rendered.
Will my HSA reimburse me for your services?
I am a CMS recognized provider and I have CPT and ICD-10 codes for RN & IBCLC services provided for educational and care services related to perinatal, newborn and breastfeeding/lactation visits. Upon request I can supply you with a superbill once your services have been paid in full and you can submit the superbill to your HSA plan to request reimbursement.

What is your availability?
Private sessions are available on a first come first served basis. Please keep in mind that weekend dates tend to fill quickly and some clients schedule weekend sessions a month or two in advance. COVID-19 has limited my access to childcare for my children and I now have to scale back on in-home visits due to limited availability. I am available the following days and times:
Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays:
Mornings: 8:00am, 8:30am, 9:00am, 9:30am or 10:00am
Afternoons: 1:00pm, 1:30pm, 2:00pm or 2:30pm
Monday - Thursday:
Evenings: 6:30pm & after
Virtual sessions only: 1:30pm
Morning & afternoon hours vary and are available on a very limited basis
Virtual sessions: Availability is flexible (fair warning - my kids may want to say hi... or scream a few times)
With advanced planning I do my best to accommodate requests outside of the hours listed above.
If you would like to schedule a session please contact me to make arrangements.
