Dr. Palmer gladly accepts Butte County Victim Witness, Medicare, Private Pay Clients, Aetna, and some Blue Shield Plans. Additionally, if Dr. Palmer is not a network provider on your health insurance, he is willing to serve as an out-of-network benefit for mental health services if your insurance will reimburse you for his services. Payment for out-of-network clients is expected at time of service, but Dr. Palmer's billing service will bill the health insurance company and the insurance company will reimburse you according to the insurance company's terms.
