COST OF SESSIONS
Therapy sessions are $195 for a 50-minute session. I accept cash, check, or credit cards. A fee based on a sliding scale may be considered for clients depending on income and availability. Please call or email for additional information. Depending on your insurance plan, out-of-network benefits may cover some or all of the cost of services. In line with out-of-network reimbursement on a monthly basis you will be provided with an itemized receipt that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
USING OUT-OF-NETWORK BENEFITS
Services may be covered in part or in full by your health insurance plan. Providers can be asked the following questions in order to understand the extent that services will be covered:
Does my plan include "out-of-network" mental health services?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
What is my "co-insurance"?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per session?
Is approval required from my primary care doctor?
In instances where out-of-network benefits are covered, you will be responsible for payment at the time of service and your insurance will reimburse your expenses.
BENEFITS OF PAYING OUT-OF-POCKET
Insurance companies often mandate a diagnosis, oversee your health records, and may seek access to your notes while you are in therapy. In addition, they can limit your coverage to a set number of therapy sessions per year. For some paying out-of-pocket is a better fit. Please feel free to call me to further discuss any questions.
