Making a Payment
Patients are responsible for any amounts due related to co-pays, co-insurance, and/or deductibles, or for services not covered by their insurance plan. At the start of services, a credit card number must be put on file with authorization for charges to be made in the event of a delinquent account, or if you prefer services to be automatically billed to your account.
We accept payment via cash, personal checks, debit card, credit card (Visa and Mastercard), and PayPal.
If you wish to pay an outstanding balance, you may contact our billing specialist at BeaconPBH@gmail.com or by calling the main line at (904) 419-7792.
Or you may pay now, directly via PayPal by clicking on the ‘Pay Now’ link below!

If you are using insurance, please check with your insurance company as to your portion of the fee (i.e. deductibles, co-pays, percentage covered) and any limitations in diagnoses and/or services covered. Many insurance companies may require an authorization prior to beginning treatment. Although we may assist in billing your insurance, you are responsible for knowing the limits of your insurance.
Clients have several options for payment of services, depending on insurance and client preference:
- If we are ‘in network’ with your insurance provider, we will submit claims directly to your insurance company to seek reimbursement and you will be responsible for any remaining co-pays, co-insurance, and/or deductible amounts. Please note that coverage varies by plan and insurance company–some insurances or plans allow certain diagnoses and procedures, while others do not. For this reason, it is extremely important that you understand the limits of your plan; we are happy to help explain some of the nuances if needed as well.
- If we are not ‘in network’ with your insurance provider:
- Clients may opt to be ‘self pay’ and pay ‘out of pocket’ for services at a reduced rate. Clients that choose this option can be provided with a ‘superbill’ for each service that they may submit to their insurance company to seek out possible reimbursement or payments applied to any ‘out of network’ deductible that they may have. For clients that do not have ‘out of network’ benefits or that have a very high deductible, this is often a good option!
- Clients may opt to utilize their ‘out of network’ benefits, and we will submit claims directly to your insurance to seek reimbursement. If you decide to proceed with this option, it is essential that you clearly understand the process of claim submission and coverage limits for your ‘out of network’ benefits (e.g., the amount that your insurance plan considers ‘reasonable and customary’ for session fees, percentage of ‘reasonable and customary’ fees that are paid by your plan, etc.), as clients are responsible for any remaining balance due. To facilitate your understanding of this often confusing process, please ensure that you read the section ‘Financial Agreement’ on page 2 of the Therapist/Client Agreement document.
