Late Cancellation / No Show Policy

We understand that sometimes it may be necessary to cancel or reschedule an appointment at the last minute due to medical problems or significant conflicts which cannot be avoided. These cancellations, however, can result in unused session or testing time in which other patients could benefit. You are expected to attend all scheduled sessions. This includes new, intake appointments. Fresh Start for the Mind, LLC employs the following Late Cancellation / No Show policies for these services:

Psychiatry

  •  If you need to cancel your appointment, you are required to call NO LATER THAN 24-BUSINESS-HOURS PRIOR to your scheduled appointment (Saturdays and Sundays are NOT considered business days). You will be charged the full session fee (i.e., pre-determined self-pay amount or amount billed to insurance company for service) for appointments cancelled with less than 24-business-hours notice.

Psychological Testing / Evaluation

  • Late cancellations or no shows often result in unused testing time in which other patients could have benefitted. Additionally, this creates a loss of valuable, productive time by our psychologists and/or psychometrists. The process for psychological testing / evaluations includes preparation of staff and materials, and it blocks a substantial amount of scheduling time. Your insurance authorization may be affected as well. There is typically a time frame that insurance companies allow to have services done and if it is rescheduled, we cannot always guarantee that they will extend that time frame. If you need to cancel your appointment, you are required to call NO LATER THAN 48-BUSINESS-HOURS PRIOR to your scheduled appointment (Saturdays and Sundays are NOT considered business days). You will be charged $90 for appointments cancelled with less than a 48-business-hour’s notice. In order for us to maintain efficiency, as well as give full consideration to our patients and providers, it is necessary for us to implement this cancellation policy and the only consideration of waiving the $90 fee will be with the submission of a doctor’s note within 24-hours of the scheduled appointment.

Counseling & Coaching

  • If you need to cancel your appointment, you are required to call NO LATER THAN 24-BUSINESS-HOURS PRIOR to your scheduled appointment (Saturdays and Sundays are NOT considered business days). You will be charged half the provider’s self-pay rate, up to $75) for appointments cancelled with less than 24-business-hours notice.
