FINANCIAL POLICY

Welcome and thank you for choosing Connie Fritz-Phillips, MS, NCC, LPC, LPC-MH, QMHP, LAC, ICADC, CCMHC, ACS, DBA PHILLIPS MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES (PMHS) as your health care provider. I am committed to your treatment being successful. Please understand that payment of your bill is considered a part of your treatment. If you are uncertain of the cost for a specific service, PMHS urges you to inquire about it.  


MISSED APPOINTMENTS

Missed Appointments, No Shows, or Late Cancellations:

My policy is to charge for “no show” appointments at half the rate of a normal office visit. Appointments that are not canceled at least 24 hours in advance are also subject to this fee. Please help me serve you better by keeping your scheduled appointments.



COURT APPEARANCES

Billing for Testimony, Attorney Fees, Correspondence, Etc.:  

Billing will reflect a combination of factors including expertise, potential practice income loss, travel time, updates, reports, and courtroom waiting time, (time away from office, whether called to testify or not, loss of clients). As a fact or an expert witness, I expect to be compensated for my time. Please contact myself if you have any questions regarding billing.  A deposit/retainer of $850.00 is required if referred by an attorney for any legal matter (ex. court ordered).  Please refer to the financial policy.
