Cottage Psychiatry's Policies, Pricing and Privacy Info
Office Cancellation and Overdue Balance Policy
All appointments must be cancelled 24 hours in advance in order to avoid being charged for their missed appointment. Our clinician relies on income from scheduled appointments and requires that your credit or debit card information be kept on file in the rare instance that you do not attend your scheduled appointment. Your credit card will be charged ONLY FOR MISSED VISITS/ LAST MINUTE CANCELATIONS AND FOR OVERDUE BALANCES > 30 DAYS. You will have the option to use another method of payment should you choose. In the event of a missed appointment, that has not been canceled at least 24 hours in advance, your card will be charged for the cost of the scheduled visit.
We send out text reminders and emails of appointments as a courtesy. However, you are responsible to keep track of your appointment.
