Hoof Prints on the Heart

Dr. Graciela Carbajal
Licensed Psychologist in New Jersey and New York

As a out of network provider, Dr. Graciela Carbajal will help you get the treatment to you need through your insurance coverage so you can pay the least amount possible out-of-pocket. Out-of-network providers: Dr. Carbajal will walk you through it all. You may have an out-of-network benefit for mental health as part of your insurance plan.  This benefit helps you to pay for services from therapists that are not in your company’s network.  Out-of-network benefits typically require you to pay for treatment up to the amount of your deductible, and then reimburse you a significant percentage of each bill.  It is always a good idea to understand your insurance plan and all its benefits clearly.  Fees, insurance options, and available appointments will be discussed during the initial phone contact. Our experts will help you make sense of it all.
