Preparing for our First Meeting

 

Dr. Kaeppner is currently accepting new patients, both adults and children. His office is located in Anderson Township, easily accessible from I-275. Leave a message on his confidential voicemail at 513-313-7661, and he will contact you to schedule a time that is mutually convenient. During your first few sessions you will discuss what issue(s) prompted you to call, and goals for your treatment.  If you must cancel an appointment, please allow 48-hours notice so that another patient may be scheduled in your timeslot.

Fees are $180 for the initial session and $135 for subsequent sessions.  Insurance plans accepted include Aetna, Humana, and plans where mental health benefits are administered by HealthSpan; and you will generally only owe a copay with these plans.  If your plan is not on this list, you can check with your insurance company to see if you have out-of-network benefits. This is especially common with most Anthem plans.  Your treatment can also be funded by your flexible spending account or HSA.
