Insurance & Rates
I am what is called an out-of-network provider for all major insurance providers. This means, if you wish to use your insurance, you will need to contact your insurance company and ask them how much they reimburse if you choose to see an out-of-network licensed therapist. I have found that many insurance companies will reimburse you for a significant part of my rate.
The steps are as follows: You will pay me for the cost of session at the time of service. I will give you a bill for your sessions that will have all the necessary information an insurance company requires. You will then submit the bill to your company and when the reimbursement check comes it will go directly to you. I am here to answer any questions you may have about this process.
My rate is $150 per 50 minute counseling session. I offer a reduced rate as needed and available (a portion of my caseload is devoted to this). Inquire about the sliding scale. I accept all major credit cards, health savings accounts, and flexible spending accounts. I don't accept cash or checks. Payment is due at the time of service. I do not carry balances.
Because availability is limited and arrangements have been made to reserve the time especially for you, I request that clients give at least 24 hours notice in the event that you need to cancel or reschedule a session. I understand that sometimes things come up and will make every effort to reschedule when we are both able to accommodate an alternate appointment time within a reasonable time frame.
My policy is that cancellations and re-scheduled sessions are subject to the full session rate if NOT RECEIVED AT LEAST 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE. This is necessary because a time commitment is made to you and is held exclusively for you. Thank you for taking note of this policy and planning accordingly.
No Surprises Act
Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service, or at any time during treatment.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, or how to dispute a bill, see your Estimate, or visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
