Policies and Documentation
Healthy Life Choices, GA Documentation Request Policy
Request for documentation to include letters, summary of services, medical leave, court documentation, FMLA or disability forms are assigned a fee depending upon the complexity of documentation requested.
Please allow up to 14 business day to complete any request for documentation. Requests are to be submitted via secure fax or email and or in person in office by completing documentation request form. All proper consent forms must be on file.
Upon receipt of documentation request, an invoice will be provided for requested services, detailing cost/ fee and expected date of completion.
Before any information is completed or released payment for services and any past due balances must be paid in full.
Expedited Documentation Request
Expedited request for a response or documentation within 1 business days is available for additional fee of $300.00.
Expedited request for a response or documentation within 3 business days is available for additional fee of $150.00.
FMLA paperwork generally requires a minimum of 1-2 hours to complete, due to the need for supporting clinical documentation. Short-term disability often takes longer to complete and may require additional assessments beyond my regular intake evaluation. The time required to make copies or prepare and send faxes, and any other administrative business (e.g. preparing releases of information or requests for records; phone calls to lawyers or other non-clinical calls) not directly related to the provision of clinical services, will also be based on the complexity of the documentation request, with a minimum fee of $75.00.
There will be no completion of any FMLA, disability, other paperwork, or letters of support unless your therapist has met with you for at least 5-8 sessions. We also will not complete any FMLA or disability paperwork if we do not believe we can support it based on what you have presented at intake and during sessions.

-$100 per hr. reviewing of materials, meetings, and conference calls.
-$150 per hr. for document preparation, appearances at depositions or testifying in court (plus any expenses). * Noted at minimum of 3 hours allotted time, additional hours to be billed.
