Payments can be made in cash or credit card and are due at the time of service. If you would like to submit to insurance for reimbursement, you will be given a Superbill at the end of your appointment to send to your insurance company.

If you arrive more than 15 minutes after your scheduled appointment time, this may be considered a missed appointment and may have to be rescheduled.
Missed intake appointments (including late cancellations and late arrivals) may not be rescheduled.
It is understood that emergencies arise thus the fee for a missed or cancelled appointment will be waived once per year.

CAF Therapeutic strategies does NOT offer the following services:
— disability, custody or forensic evaluations.
— completion of paperwork for emotional support animals.
—Portal: Once you have submitted the online intake form and been accepted as a new patient, you will receive an email inviting you to the patient portal. After creating an account, you will receive the new patient welcome packet and forms to complete before your first appointment. You can use the portal to communicate with your provider, update your information and see your appointments. You will need to contact your provider to make and reschedule appointments.
—Spruce: After your initial evaluation, your provider may invite you to download the Spruce Care Messenger app. This app can be used to send and receive secure text messages between you and your provider.
—Forms: Prior to your first appointment, you will be asked to complete several forms and input information into the Luminello portal. You will find the forms under the “My Documents” tab in the portal. There will be additional instructions in the Welcome Packet. You are responsible for reviewing all office policies before your first appointment.

—Code of Conduct: It is expected that all staff, patients, and visitors will adhere to basic decency and etiquette throughout their time at CAF Therapeutic Strategies.
