Cost of sessions
My fees are $160 per 50 minute session. I accept cash, check, or credit. Please see the insurance statement below and check with your provider to see if you have "out-of-network" benefits if you are seeking insurance reimbursement, as I am not an in-network provider. A sliding fee scale based on annual income may be considered for clients who experience financial hardship. Please call for more information.
USING OUT-OF-NETWORK BENEFIts
Clinical Services may be covered in part or in full by your health insurance plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking your provider these questions:
Do I have "out-of-network" mental health insurance benefits?
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 mandate a diagnosis, oversee your health records, and may seek access to your information while in therapy. They also may limit your coverage to a set number of therapy sessions per year, regardless of what you're going through. When considering the implications of using insurance, paying out-of-pocket is a better fit for some. Please feel free to call me to further discuss any questions.
