DR. GREENE'S PRACTICE
For patients' convenience we handle the claims for all insurances with out-of-network benefits and, if a patient's policy allows payment directly to Dr. Greene, billing is just for deductibles and coinsurance. Dr. Greene participates only in the United Behavioral Health/Optum Health network (which includes Oxford) and Medicare networks but cannot accept Medicare patients with Medicaid supplementary coverage since he is not a Medicaid provider. Patients having medical policies with United Healthcare should verify that their mental health benefits are with United Behavioral Health/OptumHealth.
Payment via standing credit card instructions is preferred. Dr. Greene accepts American Express, MasterCard and Visa. A form is included in the intake forms. For other payment arrangements, receipts and billing, please contact Gerry. Dr. Greene is does not accept credit card payments or issue receipts in his office.
Please contact Gerry at 646 861 2468 or email him to confirm any insurance arrangements, the fee and whether your scheduling requirements can be accommodated. After obtaining an appointment, please download, read and complete the relevant Intake Forms. The form for preferred payment by standing credit card instructions is included. If you need to make other arrangements, please let Gerry know. The medical information release form authorizing Dr. Greene to talk with other providers involved in your care is optional. Take the forms to your appointment or scan/email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep copies for yourself.
United Behavioral Health/OptumHealth asks providers to obtain completed Wellness Assessments at the beginning of treatment and between sessions 3-5. Requests for further wellness assessments are sent directly to the member by UBH/OptumHealth periodically.
Please take a picture ID and your insurance card (if using insurance) to your first session. Also, you will need a picture ID to enter the building. If, for privacy reasons, you wish only to indicate the floor number when you sign in, please tell the guard at reception.
