 Professional Fees


Effective 1 January 2009 Atlanta Family Psychiatry's fees will change to and be pro-rated at $120.00 for 30 minutes.(This is the first rate change in approximately 10 years). Our "late cancellation" and "no-show" charge has also been changed to $120. AFPI regrets the need to make this change.

Although Dr. Ware does work with some insurance companies, every effort is made to establish a financial plan with any family that desires to use his services.

Those interested in using insurance should contact their insurer directly to determine if Dr. Ware is a listed provider for your particular company. Dr Ware's billing and business office may be able to assist.

Dr. Ware’s rate is $120.00 per 30 min. Charges are prorated for times over or under 30 minutes.

Clients are encouraged to consider “out of pocket” payment which should be discussed directly with Dr. Ware. See Section D of the New Client and Payor Information Questionnaire (Welcome page, New Clients section).

Payment is due at the time of service.
Finance charges (1 ˝ percent of the unpaid balance per month/18% APR) are applied to balances remaining over 60 days unless payment arrangements are made with the billing office or Dr. Ware prior to 60 days. 
The client is responsible for all deductibles and charges not covered by insurance.

When cost is a significant issue, the client is encouraged to discuss this with Dr. Ware.

For Business Office Policies on accounts and payment see section G of the New Client and Payor Information Questionnaire (Welcome page, New Clients section).

Do you let your insurance company choose your doctor? It is not widely known that in the 1940's the American Medical Association determined that is was unethical for a physician to enter into any contract that would restrict a patient's choice of physician. That is no longer the case
