Helpful Information for Patients

Forms & Fees

Billing insurance

Dr. Sara’s North Carolina practice is a separate business entity from her Georgetown, DC practice. In her North Carolina practice, she is in network with the NC BCBS PPO (but not Blue Local or Blue Value or any Blue HMO product).

If you are an NC client and want Dr. Sara to find out about your benefits and/or bill your insurance, the CMS/HCFA 1500 is required. Please download the form and fill it out only if you are a North Carolina patient. You can then either scan it and email it to us along with a copy of your insurance card or bring it with you to your first visit. Please note that if you have some other insurance, you will likely need to meet an out-of-network deductible before insurance will reimburse any charges.

NC Notice Form

This form is the new version of the Notice of Psychologists’ Policies and Practices to Protect the Privacy of Your Health Information. This notice is not something you sign or consent to; rather, it is information provided to you about what the law says about how psychological and medical information about you may be used and disclosed and how you can get access to this information.

Release of Confidential Information

Quality medical care in integrated care – care where your physical, mental and emotional challenges are considered together. If you are referred by a physician, it will be very helpful for Dr. Sara to communicate directly with him or her about your care; but in order to do so, she will need to have your written consent.

Get to Know Yourself

Good psychotherapy should do so much more than just help you feel better. Good psychotherapy should help you deepen self-intimacy – your capacity to know and understand yourself, your strengths and weaknesses, without shame or harsh self-criticism. Learning to practice self-compassion is the cornerstone of getting to know yourself. It’s also the starting place for learning to make positive changes in your life using positive behavior change strategies. Harsh self-punishment is altogether different from accountability. Don’t settle for a life of good behavior – aspire to be the best person you can be, someone who is always growing.

For Your Convenience

Dr. Rosenquist accepts credit cards and healthcare savings cards, and she can provide you with a receipt if you want to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

What Our Patients
are Saying

I enjoyed my first session with Dr Sara. I liked how she listened and after she listened she was able to speak to my situation accurately and it didn’t take her asking me tons of questions. Dr Sara got right to the point and her feedback for my first session was enlightening and invaluable. Something I can build upon until my next booster session.
