Fees & Insurance

Insurance Information

I am an in-network provider with Medicare and out-of-network with all other health insurance companies. My office staff will gladly file insurance claims for you, whether your insurance coverage is in- or out-of-network.

 

My office staff can help you determine what your out-of-network benefits may be. We also encourage you to contact your insurance provider to discuss your options for outpatient therapy under your behavioral health benefits.

 

Here are helpful questions to ask your insurance company:

  1. Do I have out-of-network coverage?

  2. What is the deductible?

  3. Is there coinsurance or copay required?

  4. Is there a maximum number of sessions per year that are allowed?

  5. Do you cover CPT code 90837 for outpatient psychotherapy sessions without requiring a prior authorization?
    If so, what is the reimbursement rate?

Session Rates

If you do not wish to use insurance benefits for therapy, the following fees apply:

  • Intake session: $175 (Please note: fee will increase to $220 on August 1, 2021)

  • Standard session: $150 (Please note: fee will increase to $180 on August 1, 2021)
     

Note: I offer a select number of sliding scale fee openings for individuals based on income. Please contact us to learn more.

Late cancellation/No show policy

We require clients to give us at least 24 hour notice (48 hours preferred) if there is a need to cancel or reschedule an appointment. We often have a waiting list for patients needing to be seen. Less than 24 hours notice does not give the staff enough time to fill the slot, therefore a no show/late cancellation will result in a charge for the full standard session fee ($150). 

Clients will not be charged the late cancellation/no show fee in the case of illness or emergency, but we ask that you please call the office at your earliest convenience to inform us of the circumstances.
