Mental Health and Therapy

Full scale psychiatric diagnostic evaluation with use of evidence-based assessments and outcomes metrics

Our journey together starts with you at the center.  We will review your complete psychiatric and medical history, family history, developmental history, and more.  We carefully review your presenting symptoms, formulate a biopsychosocial model summarizing your narrative, and determine provisional diagnoses.  We work together to come up with specific treatment goals for your care.

Comprehensive social and family obligations profile

LuvLuk understands that the modern woman has many facets in her life – from childcare responsibilities, taking care of elderly parents, maintaining social supports, and more.  That’s why we take the time to fully assess all these roles and responsibilities in a woman’s life that may impact her functioning and well-being.

Personalized medical workup and tailored health profile

At LuvLuk, we take the time to explore all the vital factors that contribute to your health and emotional wellness.  From sleep logs to thyroid panels to inflammatory marker investigations and specialized testing, we carefully consider those important features as part of your overall emotional health workup.

Career and Professional Assessment

We understand the need to maximize your emotional health so that you can perform at your best in your career.  We will assess the impact of mood, anxiety, stress, insomnia, and more on your current work functioning, and determine how to target mental health treatment to drive your professional growth.

Integrative and Holistic Options

We utilize a combination of methods, as we know that everyone has unique circumstances and goals of care.  We prioritize evaluating you comprehensively and holistically.  In addition to psychotherapy, mindfulness, and medications when needed, we incorporate supplements, hormonal considerations, and more.  The important part is having the foundations of all modalities to use them when they’re appropriate for you!

What are your appointment fees and do you take insurance?

Our goal at LuvLuk is to provide you excellence in care, with highly specialized services, exacting attention to detail, and comprehensive thoroughness in your evaluation and treatment.  We do not accept insurance.

Payment is due at the time of service and can be made through check, cash, or credit card.   We do not take insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid, and are considered an “Out of Network” provider. By being “Out of Network”, you do not have to involve 3rd parties into your treatment if you do not wish, and have full control over your confidentiality and care.   However, you do have the option of possible reimbursement from your insurance company if you choose, and then may not bear 100% of the cost of your appointments.  Please check your insurance if you plan to request reimbursement for specific benefits applicable to your plan.  We are able to provide you with a superbill through the patient portal to submit to your insurance company if you wish.

LuvLuk may also accept payment from most health savings accounts (HSA) and flex spending accounts (FSA). Please note that some LuvLuk services may not be covered by these types of accounts and you are encouraged to check with your particular plan to confirm.

Our fee schedule is listed below, with special rates during this time of uncertainty.

 

If you are hoping to get reimbursement through your insurance company, here are some questions you may consider asking them:

Please call your insurance company to determine your mental health service benefits — it will be helpful to ask them the following:

  • How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network/in-network provider?
  • What is my out-of-network/in-network deductible and has it been met?
  • What is my out-of-network/in-network annual out-of-pocket cap?
  • Do I have to have a “parity” (i.e, severe) diagnosis, to qualify for benefits?
  • How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover for a parity, or non-parity, diagnosis?
  • What is the maximum coverage amount (sometimes called the “UCR,” or “usual and customary rate”) for procedure codes:
    • Initial evaluation –  90792
    • Return Medication Checks for Established Patients – 99213 (low complexity) or 99214 (medium complexity)
    • Psychotherapy “add on” codes 90833 (16-37 mins) and 90836 (38-52 mins)
  • Is approval or a referral required from my primary care physician?
  • Do I need to obtain pre-authorization?
  • Are my benefits on a calendar year basis, or a plan year? If on a plan year, when does it start?
