Are there fees for cancelled or missed appointments?

We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please be sure to provide a notice of 48 business hours before your scheduled appointment time. The fee for missed appointments and late cancellations is $150. Patients presenting more than 15 minutes after a scheduled appointment time, will be  considered a late cancellation if they need to be rescheduled and will be charged the above fee. A continued pattern of cancelled and or late appointments can result in dismissal from the practice. All patients must have a credit card on file with ALMA to be used for self pay payments, insurance copay's, deductibles, and late cancellations or missed appointment fees. 

 

Additionally, please be aware of card expiration dates and balances as a $25 declined card fee will be incurred upon ALL declined transactions.

ALL INVOICES are to be PAID prior to next/follow up appointments.

Does Ethereal treat severe mental illness?

As a solely TeleMental health practice we are not the most suitable practice for more acute conditions (ie. schizophrenia, psychosis, mania, active and acute suicidality, severe ADHD etc).

How can I reach someone prior to or following my appointment?
