  • Do you accept insurance?
    We are a self-pay clinic, which means we do not directly take insurance. However, if you have out-of-network benefits, you may be able to submit a superbill to seek reimbursement from them, though we cannot guarantee reimbursement. If you would like to reach out to your insurance company and inquire about out-of-network coverage please reach out to We can provide you with the information your insurance company will need to determine if you are eligible for reimbursement. Additionally, there are laws that prohibit us from accepting clients with MassHealth, Medi-Cal, Medicaid, and other federally funded programs, with an exception for Medicare.
  • Do you offer a sliding scale?
    Yes. Please email our support team at for the application and further assistance.
  • What is a superbill and how do I get it?
    Superbills are documents generated by your provider that include much of the information your insurance company may require for you to submit “out-of-network” reimbursement requests. Information includes your clinician's name, license, NPI, the clinic's address, phone number, tax id, the billing code used, dates of service, and proof of payment. Please ask your clinician or our support team about receiving one-time or regular monthly superbills. We cannot guarantee that any portion of the fees will be reimbursed by your insurance provider. Before services begin, we encourage you to speak with your insurance about their reimbursement policies.
