We provide therapy services in our Largo, Florida office.

In addition, to get a list of the insurance/EAP 's that we accept
at Best Life Counseling and Coaching, please go to the INSURANCE
page of this web site. Please understand that when we provide
you benefits, they are what the insurance company has told us at the time we call them. However, if your policy changes, the
insurance company will not tell us and we rely on you to help
us have the most current information.

You are responsible for anything that the insurance does not pay, so it benefits you to let us know any changes in your insurance. We truly appreciate your help with this. We require payment at time of services as this eliminates the need to bill you. This helps us avoid having to bill you or take collection measures which could allow risks to your privacy. We encourage you to contact us immediately if you are having financial problems so that a payment plan can be worked out.

In addition, please have your initial session paperwork prior to coming to your initial session. If it is not completed , you will have less time in your session . Also, if you are using EAP benefits, we schedule 2 -1 hour sessions for the intake session . Due to this, if you do not have your paperwork completed when you come to the first session, it will need to be rescheduled. Thanks for your help with this. Initial paperwork can be obtained when you call to set up your first session as we will provide a link to a HIPPA compliant site where you can do the paperwork online and then we will print it out when you come in.

WE NOW ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS. We no longer accept checks, but do accept check cards, credit cards and cash. In addition, if you pre-pay for services, you can get a discount.However, we do not provide refunds if you pre-pay.

We do require a credit card on file for No Show fees and insurance issues. We provide many ways for you to avoid having to pay No Show fees by being able to cancel an appointment online, by e-mail, fax or voice mail. If someone No Shows, it hurts another person who may really have needed to get in to see the therapist and this is why we have this policy.

We have the above NO SHOW policy as it is not fair to others who may have needed the appointment that you did not show up for. The person trying to get in may have really needed to come in and then were not able to as you did not show up.
