Emmaus is committed to making it simple for our clients to receive the care they need by offering a full range mental health services and accepting most major insurance plans.  We offer preferred providers with most major insurance plans, if you don’t see yours listed**, please contact us to determine if we take your insurance.   Please note, per the contracts with our paneled providers, that any co-payments and/or co-insurance amounts are due at time of service.   Always check your coverage with your insurance carrier if you have questions.


INSURANCE BILLING POLICIES:  In addition to the above in-network plans, we can also bill out-of-network should we not be covered by your plan, and you have out-of-network benefits available. Our Care Coordinator will make every effort to match you with providers who are contracted with your insurance, but may ask that you see an out-of-network provider in special needs situations and on a case-by-case basis.

*PRE-AUTHORIZATIONS: If your insurance plan requires a pre-authorization for services, it is ultimately the responsibility of the client to obtain this authorization prior to being seen by your provider. If you fail to obtain authorization, any and all charges incurred and not reimbursed, will be your financial responsibility.  For Kaiser Permanente’s HMO, Exchange, Alliance and Options Select plans a pre-authorization is required and members should contact the Behavioral Health Services at 1.888.287.2680.

Health Maintenance Organization (HMO): A type of health insurance plan based on a gate-keeper model, where the patient’s PCP requests referrals and authorizations for treatment with other physicians and specialists.  Patients typically pay copayments for services.

EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PLAN (EAP): We accept both Optum EAP and Wellspring EAP.

INSURANCE CHANGES: If you have a change in insurance, please let us know as soon as possible, so we can ensure payment.  At the start of the each new calendar year in January, with new insurance plans taking effect along with new deductibles to be met, we will be re-verifying benefits and collecting your full visit fee that will be applied to your deductible at the time of service.

HOW TO PAY YOUR BILL: Payment is due at the time of rendering services. We accept cash, checks, all major credit cards (including AmericanExpress, Discover, and debit cards).  We have several options for paying your bill:
