We are grateful to the many doctors who refer their patients to us for a variety of health related issues. Most doctors are aware that hypnosis is considered a medical procedure and, as such, utilizes medical billing codes. And, while most insurance companies do not routinely cover hypnotic sessions, many will with a referral provided to you by your attending physician.
Once you receive a referral, you should check with your insurance company to see if they will cover the service fee. Our office is a "self pay" which means you must pay at the time of service and submit the invoice to your insurance company for reimbursement. Most people can use their HSA card - however, you should check with your provider first.
Our policy for individual service is as follows: Upon receiving a referral from your doctor (either faxed or emailed to our office) we will schedule you for a one hour appointment. We encourage you to bring your family, friends and/or caregivers to this meeting. The cost for the first appointment is $40 and is due at the time of service.
Family and Friend Support
If you have a partner, spouse or friend you would like to bring with you to your first appointment, we strongly encourage you to do so. The educational portion of the appointment offers helpful information for those who care about you. If your guest would like to leave during the hypnotic session, they can wait for you in our comfortable lobby.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact our office.
* This rate is usually reserved for our pre-pay clients.
Your appointment is educational. You'll learn valuable information that is time-tested to speed healing. You'll have an opportunity to talk at length with Dr. Winslow about your goals and desires. For some, it's to stop smoking, for others, it's to remove a phobia. Still others want to lose weight or manage their chronic pain. All of this, and more, is possible via medical support hypnosis.
You and your guests will have an opportunity to try hypnosis and to ask questions. We want you to feel 100% comfortable with the process. If you choose to go forward, you can schedule a private session or ask if a group session is available at a lower rate.
Private sessions are 60 to 90 minutes in length. The process is customized to you. Most people find the relief they seek in 4 to 6 sessions, however, some very complex problems may require up to 10. The best rate for private sessions is a "four pack" or 4 sessions for $500. See our regular rates here.
At your first meeting, Dr. Winslow will be able to offer you a treatment program along with the anticipated total cost estimate.
