Phoenix Progressive Psychiatric Services is a cash-pay only practice. We are not in-network with any health insurance, MediCare, nor Medicaid.

You can, however, pay for treatment with us using any HSA or FSA account.

This is a benefit for YOU as it offers you CONFIDENTIALITY. No one will know about your personal mental health concerns except you and your psychiatrist. No third party will intrude upon your private relationship with your psychiatrist nor try to dictate your care.

Federal law (Ryan Haight Act) prohibits prescribing of any controlled medications (benzodiazepines, ADHD stimulants) over telemedicine. While this law has been suspended temporarily due to the COVID-19 emergency, due to the increased regulatory requirements involved, we will continue to abide by the original law at this time.

For informational purposes only, a link to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Open Payments web page is provided here. The federal Physician Payments Sunshine Act requires that detailed information about payment and other payments of value worth over ten dollars ($10) from manufacturers of drugs, medical devices, and biologics to physicians and teaching hospitals be made available to the public.
