Greenlake Psychiatric participates with a wide variety of insurance plans including: Aetna, First Choice, Premera, and Regence. Dr Sastry is not a participating provider with UnitedHealth, Tricare, Medicare or Medicaid. Insurance coverage and contracting may change and it is your responsibility to know if we are covered by your plan.
As a patient or guarantor, we ask you to know your insurance plan. Before your visit, call the toll free number on the back of your insurance card. Make sure you know if Dr Sastry is a contracted in network provider.
- Bring your insurance card to every visit.
- Tell us if your insurance or mailing address has changed.
- Pay your co-pay or balance at the time of your visit.
For all new and established patient appointments, we require at least 48-hour notice if you are unable to keep your appointment. Missing an appointment and/or canceling with less than 48 hours notice, will result in a cancellation fee. You will need to pay this fee before any future appointments will be made. The cancellation fee is $75.
New patients are allowed one missed appointment then they will not be allowed to schedule.
Established patients - three missed appointments within 12 months may result in dismissal from the practice.
We accept all credit cards, debit and HSA cards, and ACH transfers. We will keep a credit card number on file for your convenience. Checks returned for insufficient funds will result in an immediate charge of $35.00 against your account.
Greenlake Psychiatric will submit bills to insurance companies on your behalf when we are in-network providers. As a patient, you can expect that we will provide accurate and timely billing. If we do not contract with your insurance company, we will provide you with a superbill and receipt of payment for you to submit to your insurance company. There is no guarantee of any reimbursement if we are out of network. Questions about your insurance bills and account can be answered by Larsen’s Billing at (888) 458-8015.
