Rates & Insurance

 

 

Rates

My rate is $500 for the first visit (this visit includes a 60 minute session plus administration and scoring of a variety of screenings and assessments, as indicated for anxiety, depression, trauma, executive functioning, OCD and other possible issues).

Follow-up sessions are $275 for a 45 minute session and $365 for a 60 minute session. Family sessions are 60 minute sessions.

Insurance

I do not participate in any insurance plans.  This is called an “out of network provider”.

This means that you pay me directly for sessions, and then pursue reimbursement (if applicable) from your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan. Please contact your provider to understand how your plan compensates for psychotherapy services.

I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Does my health insurance plan include out-of-network mental health benefits?
  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
  • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
  • If you will be doing a video or phone session, be sure to ask: does my plan cover out of network telehealth for mental health?

Payment

I require that a credit card is kept on file for payment. And you as the consumer, are in control and responsible for seeking reimbursement if that is an option for you.

Cancellation Policy

You or your child/adolescent’s designated session time is held specifically for you. Therefore, for the duration of our therapeutic arrangement, if you are unable to come to a session, I require 7 days notice in order to have the ability to offer the time slot to another person.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
• Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
• 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, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 800-985-3059.
