How do I make an appointment?

Call 615-270-5114 or Contact Me to schedule an appointment. 

What are your policies regarding confidentiality?

All information you provide is confidential and cannot be revealed without your permission. With a signed written release of information, I will be happy to work in conjunction with your medical treatment team. There are a few exceptions in which I am mandated by the law to breach confidentiality. This is explained thoroughly in the Resources section. 

What is your cancellation policy?

If it's necessary to cancel an appointment, you must provide 24 hours notice for cancellation prior to your scheduled appointment time.  You will be charged the full fee for missed or cancelled appointment unless you have provided 24 hour advance notice. All voicemails are dated and timestamped.

Do you prescribe medication?

I do not prescribe medication. However, when appropriate, I will refer you to a prescribing provider for a medication evaluation. Additionally, I will be happy to work in conjunction with your medical treatment team. 

Do you take insurance?

I am considered an out-of-network provider, which means that I am not contracted by insurance plans. However, many insurance plans do provide the opportunity to apply for reimbursement for therapy services received from out-of-network providers. Plans can vary widely, and you are responsible for determining what insurance benefits you receive and can obtain for reimbursement. In some cases, you can request a "single case exception", explaining why you are unable to find another provider with my same expertise in your area, and they may be able to cover the treatment. Please call your insurance company (phone number is on back of insurance card) prior to your first appointment and request further information regarding your out-of-network benefits.

Here are some helpful questions to ask your insurance company:

  • I’m seeking out-of-network services with Dr. Mara Fleischer, what are the percentage of Providers fees that are reimbursable?
  • Is there a deductible?
  • How many sessions per year does my plan cover?
  • What information do I need to submit in order to receive out-of-network reimbursement?
  • What address do I send the information to?
  • Are there any time limitations regarding filing my claims?
