I am a CIGNA Provider. I accept EAP patients, Long Term Psychotherapy patients, and conduct diagnostic evaluations.
Thank you for choosing me as your psychotherapist/psychologist.
I will do everything in my power to provide you with the best service.
I use PATH as my platform for CIGNA. Please use the PATH link to get to the forms to fill out for CIGNA and make sure you request Dr. Bachmeier-Levy.
Here is the link to the PATH platform where you can request me as your therapist and set your first appointment.
I Cannot Waive the Co-Pay or the Deductible, though I am often tempted to do so as I understand many folks simply cannot afford it, and they desperately need therapy.
However, some therapists have actually been sued for waiving co-pays and deductibles. Here is why:
- Your agreement with CIGNA is a contract— this is is a legally binding agreement with you and your employer—if I, as a provider decide to waive patient deductibles and copays, then I am reducing your covered contractual financial obligation. Believe it or not, I can get in trouble for a few different legal reasons.
- Basically, waiving deductibles and copays interferes with the employer’s and/or individual’s contract with the insurance carrier—and that puts me at risk of being sued for damages.
