Do you accept insurance?
Like most Philadelphia psychiatrists, Dr. Ascher is an out-of-network provider, meaning that he does not accept payments from insurance companies. If you are interested in seeking reimbursement from your insurance company, contact them directly to obtain information about your “out-of-network” coverage for mental health. His services are also an eligible expense for Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). Please click here for more information.
Providing comprehensive psychiatric care demands a personalized, tailor-made approach. As such, Dr. Ascher does not follow the one-size-fits-all treatment guidelines dictated by insurance companies as they may compromise the customized care that his patients deserve. Dr. Ascher will certainly help to provide detailed invoices if you wish to submit your own claim to insurance.
Do you have a cancellation policy?
Dr. Ascher understands everyone has unexpected changes to their schedule. With advanced notice he will try his best to accommodate any schedule change you request. However, you will be charged for missed/cancelled sessions without 48 hours notice unless he can reschedule your appointment within the calendar week. It is important to realize that “no show” sessions cannot be submitted to insurance for reimbursement.
What makes your psychiatry practice special?
Dr. Ascher offers a personalized and individualized approach to psychiatry. Dr. Ascher will not just hand you a prescription; he will discuss your progress with you, and arrange for psychotherapy or other therapies as a complement to psychiatric help. Dr. Ascher is one of the few psychiatrists in Philadelphia that can treat addiction. Read more about what to expect from Dr. Ascher here.
