Fees and Insurance
- Psychopharmacology: Dr. Adebisi is not currently in network with insurance companies, and payment is due in full at the time of service. He does offer limited sliding-scale fee options, and he provides bills of service, which can be submitted to insurance carriers for patient reimbursement.
- dTMS: Dr. Adebisi is not currently in network with insurance companies. However, he will seek to obtain Single Case Agreements (SCA) with most insurers. An SCA is a contract between an insurance company and an out-of-network TMS provider for a specific patient’s treatment. It allows the patient to receive TMS using in-network benefits. The SCA process must be completed before treatment begins. Once it is established, we will negotiate our fee with the patient’s insurance company. Fees are based on NYS Fair Health Law customary rates. Just as with in-network providers, the patient will pay only the routine in-network co-pay for each session (after meeting their in-network deductible, where applicable).
- Many insurance companies now cover dTMS for depression in patients who have tried 3-4 antidepressants as well as a course of psychotherapy, without success. Many insurance companies will also provide coverage for patients who have prior success with TMS. Coverage of dTMS for patients with OCD varies among insurance providers.
