River Road Psychiatry, LLC providers do not accept insurance and operate on a fee-for-service model.
All fees are due at the time of service.
We recognize that there is often an additional expense when patients choose to participate with a provider who does not accept insurance. There are many benefits to the direct pay model, including increased confidentiality over your private information, reduced emphasis on diagnoses, and greater flexibility in treatment duration and frequency. We will strive to use your time and financial investment wisely while also ensuring you reach the outcomes you seek.
