The current fee for a standard 90-minute initial consultation (new patient visit) is $350, covering diagnostic assessment and formulation of treatment recommendations, and when applicable, the initiation of treatment. In some cases, where a longer session or further specialized assessment is desirable or necessary, the fee may be higher. All new patients are asked to fill out a set of pre-visit forms before they are seen. A portion of this paperwork covers necessary formalities such as demographic, contact, and insurance information, certain notices and policies. The rest will gather clinically relevant information from you including a set of questionnaires, scales or inventories that are meant to be filled out by the patient on his or her own, and are tailored for him or her based on the telephone conversation arranged prior to the initial visit. Completing these forms typically takes 60-90 minutes. Dr. Duzyurek will discuss how this task may be accomplished during an introductory phone conversation he will have with you for scheduling your first visit.
Dr. Duzyurek provides a spectrum of professional services in the subsequent visits, and fees for these services vary depending on the time commitment required and the nature of the service provided. For most patients, the fee for a typical follow-up evaluation and treatment session for general psychiatric care is $250. In order to inquire about fees for particular services and treatment modalities you are seeking, please call Dr. Duzyurek or contact the office.
In order to provide personalized care without sacrificing the irreducable amount of time required to dedicate for high-quality and thorough evaluation and treatment, Dr. Duzyurek believes in practicing independent of insurance companies and HMOs, and therefore he is an out-of-network provider with all insurance plans. At each visit, you will be given an itemized patient statement that contains all of the required information for you to submit claims for a reimbursement in order to take advantage of your out-of-network insurance benefits.
All fees are due at the time of service and payment may be made in cash or check or by using debit or credit card (only Visa, MasterCard or Discover are accepted at this time.)
OFFICE HOURS: Monday through Friday 10 AM through 7 PM. The last patient appointment slot daily is at 6 PM.
Missed appointments and appointments that are cancelled with a less-than-24-hr notice are charged in full (please ask for a copy of the office policies at the time of your initial visit for details.)
Is TMS Therapy Covered By Insurance Carriers?
TMS therapy is considered medically necessary and covered in the treatment of severe Major Depressive Disorder by most health insurance plans, such as Anthem Blue Cross / Blue Shield (covering CA, GA, NV, CO, CT, IN, KY, ME, MO, NH, OH, VA, WI, and NY), along with most other plans, when certain conditions are met for precertification (prior authorization.) As an example, you can read Anthem's Medical Policy regarding TMS coverage by clicking here. With prior authorization, you can use your out-of-network benefits for a reimbursement of the cost of TMS therapy with Dr. Duzyurek, in part or in full (depending on the plan.) If needed, it is possible to utilize the assistance of a third party reimbursement support agency that contacts your insurance company and advocates on your behalf in attempt to get either partial or full coverage. Click here for the CPT (billing) codes for rTMS. For up-to-date info on coverage issues, visit the Neurostar Reimbursement Support web site. Dr. Duzyurek strives to offer lowest fiscally-feasible fees for this procedure. In addition, you will not be charged any extra or hidden fees for the procedure, such as hospital or facility fees, or other surcharges. All treatment sessions are conducted by Dr. Duzyurek himself without delegating any portion of the procedural tasks to other staff or trainees. For the current fee structure and payment options, contact Dr. Duzyurek.
Also, a healthcare flexible spending account can be used to pay for TMS Therapy.
