Dr. Melanie Chinchilla is an in-network provider for Lyra, Modern Health, MHN and Anthem Blue Cross in California.
All other Approach Therapy psychotherapists are considered out-of-network providers with EAPs and insurance companies. When you choose to work with an out-of-network provider, you pay the fees to the provider directly. We will provide you with a statements, called a superbill, that you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

Your insurance may provide some reimbursement if you have out-of-network mental health benefits. If eligible, you may obtain partial reimbursement for the fees from the insurance company. Depending on the plan, insurance companies may reimburse up to 80% of an hourly session rate.

We reserve session time just for you. If you need to cancel your appointment, we ask that you notify your therapist at least 48 hours ahead of time. If you miss or cancel your appointment less than 48 hours ahead of time, you are responsible for the full session fees.

Please feel free to ask if you have any questions about the cancellation policy.

Approach Therapy uses an electronic health record system which allows our clients easy access to schedule, re-schedule or cancel their appointments. Therapists open their schedule up to two months in advance and you can schedule, re-schedule, or cancel your appointment up to 48 hours before your scheduled appointment time. If it is less than 48 hours before your scheduled appointment, you will no longer be able to make changes to your appointment using the client portal.

If you need to cancel or re-schedule your appointment less than 48 hours before your scheduled appointment, please e-mail your therapist directly or e-mail admin@approachtherapy.com. You can also call or text 415-370-0141 to leave your therapist a message.
