Fee For Services

At L.I.F.E. Management Systems we are dedicated to providing high quality services to the broadest range of clients possible. The cost of services provided by our professional staff is within the range of usual and customary fees for professional services in the community. Dr. Stoltzfus recognizes that not everyone can afford his usual fee and he doesn't want the cost to interfere with the person or family receiving the needed treatment.  He has compassion for those in pain.  His goal is to serve others in the best way possible and at the same time take good care of their family and loved ones.

In order to accomplish this goal, there are several options. First of all, if the person, couple or family are highly motivated to learn and grow, he may be flexible in setting the fee, which may be a reduced amount or include a customized payment plan. Secondly, another L.I.F.E. Management staff member may have more flexibility in their schedule and client load, allowing them to see the person or family at a reduced fee and more convenient time. Several of our staff members are also providers with various insurance companies and provider networks.  Additionally we are able to process credit card payments, and will work with you to utilize your medical flexible payment plan.

Please note that Dr. Stoltzfus does not participate in managed care plans or other provider-insurance company arrangements. He bases his treatment on the needs of the client, customizing his approach to each client and their unique situation, personality and needs. Dr. Stoltzfus prides himself on being guided by what is in the best interest and welfare of the client, not what is best for the financial needs of an insurance company, or a simplified "treatment manual" approach prescribed by the managed care companies.

Dr. Stoltzfus, as the founder and president of L.I.F.E. Management Systems, is very concerned about respecting each of our client's privacy and confidentiality. Most managed care and insurance plans require the mental health professional to communicate intimate, personal details about their client's lives. Dr. Stoltzfus is very concerned about this private and personal information being placed into an insurance company's computer system, and who might get access to it and how it might be used. This is especially troubling when one thinks about the push for a national information data bank containing confidential health information, which might be shared among insurance companies and others.

We at L.I.F.E. Management Systems are committed to respecting our client's privacy and keeping their personal information confidential. As a courtesy to our client's and with their request, we will provide them with a receipt for their professional services, which they can then submit for insurance reimbursement.  For further information, please click on Managed Care.

Payment for Services

At L.I.F.E. Management Systems we accept cash, check, debit, VISA and MasterCard.  A small surcharge is applied to credit card charges.  Payment is due at the beginning of each session.  So please have your check prewritten to maximize our therapy time.
