When obtaining mental health care, cost is usually a consideration. For clients wishing to use insurance, Dr. Minter is a Medicare provider, as well as being in-network for Medicare, Humana, Aetna, Coventry, MHNet, Cigna, and Tricare. If you have questions about insurance, please speak to Debbie at 813-704-4592.
Individuals in other networks currently closed to new providers, such as Florida Blue and United Health Care (United Behavioral Health), can still see Dr. Minter on an "out-of-network" basis. In those cases client pay for services out of pocket; the office will then issue a "superbill" which can be filed with the insurance company for reimbursement. Clients are advised to consult their individual carrier to see if out-of-network mental health benefits are a part of their insurance coverage.
Some clients choose to pay out-of-pocket for psychological services. Self-paying has several advantages, including maximum privacy (no requirement of insurance companies being notified of diagnoses or treatment plans) and maximum flexibility (no limits on sessions). For clients who are self pay, Dr. Minter's fees are $175 for an initial, 75-minute assessment. Psychological and neuropsychological testing is billed at the rate of $150 per hour, and therapy sessions are charged at $125 per 50-minute session.
