Rates and Insurance
My standard fee is $150 per 45-50 minute session, though I offer a broad range of sliding scale fees (based on income) in cases of financial hardship. I will always try to work with you financially and treatment-wise, if possible.
Regarding insurance, I am currently in-network with CIGNA, UBH/Optum and Magellan. However, I am out-of-network with all other insurance companies. If you have a different type of insurance, I would be considered an out-of-network provider, and would be happy to provide you with a Superbill (or receipt). Many insurance plans will often use to reimburse you for a certain percentage of my fees. You will need to check with your specific plan to determine their participation.
In cases where we cannot work out an agreeable financial arrangement, I will do my best to refer you to other therapists in the area, so that you can find someone who can help you to meet your treatment needs and goals.
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan, and sessions are often determined by "medical necessity" (I will explain this more in our first session). Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
- Do I have mental health benefits?
- What is my mental health deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
- How does my plan cover for an out-of-network provider?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
Reduced fee services are also available on a limited basis.
I accept cash, checks, Venmo, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover cards.
I request 24-hour advanced notice for any cancelled appointments. If you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, and have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
