Payments

Playa Vista Mental Health does not accept insurance directly.  We can provide you with a “superbill” that you can file with your insurance for reimbursement.  You should check with your insurance carrier to determine what they will pay for an out-of-network provider.  Payment is expected at the time of service.

Appointments with the psychiatrists are more similar to a therapist’s than a traditional medical doctor in that starting and ending appointment times are as scheduled.  Occasionally an emergency with another patient may delay your meeting time, but this is a rare occurrence.  First appointments with either of the psychiatrists are scheduled for 60 or 90 minutes. Follow up appointments are either 25 or 50 minutes.

Appointments with the therapists are 55 minutes long for both the initial visit and follow up appointments.  These appointments run on time, so please arrive a few minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.

Cash, check, and all major credit cards are acceptable methods of payment, although personal checks are not accepted for a first visit.

Certain visit types (such as initial visits) require payment in advance. If you have already discussed this with us, please click here.
