Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, we will be permanently closing in August 2023.
So we are no longer accepting new patients. Starting in May we will no longer be accepting Medicare and encouraging all other clients to find a new prescriber prior to August.
We are in-network for Aetna*, Cigna/EverNorth* & United HealthCare*.
*We cannot accept patients with Medicaid/Medicaid Plans as Primary or Secondary Coverage.
We are out-of-network for other PPOs (but have a billing service to assist) and are not covered by other HMOs or Medicaid.
If you are planning to utilize your insurance, please go to Advekit and click "Book Now" to sign-up for them to process your billing.
On average it takes about one week for them to process your insurance coverage, so please sign up for Advekit a minimum of 7 days prior to your new patient appointment. If this is not completed a minimum of 3 days prior to your appointment, your appointment will have to be canceled.
Your bill will not be submitted to insurance until after your appointment.
Private Insurance Billing Service: Advekit
Bills your insurance (including out-of-network plans) at no cost to you.
After getting to Advekit website (click on name listed above), click "Book Now" to sign-up.
**Please note signing up does not obligate you to use Advekit or to make an actual appointment.
Please call (352)631-7460 to arrange payment PRIOR to visit
In an effort to promote health equity, we utilize flat rates for self pay clients, regardless of length of appointment or whether you receive medication management, therapy, or both. We never want someone to receive less than the most therapeutic approach to their needs in an attempt to cut cost. As an independent private practice, we are unable to offer a sliding scale.
New Patient Appointment/Psych Eval Appointment Self-Pay Rate: $200
Follow Up Appointments Self-Pay Rate: $100
For the safety of our staff and clients we do not accept cash as payment and have no cash on site.
We legally cannot accept a client as a self pay client if they have Medicare.
If you need a provider that offers sliding scale services or accepts Medicaid, Lifestream currently holds the regional contract with the state
