Fees and Insurance

Session Fees, Length of Sessions, Billing, Insurance and Cancellation Policy
Most of my clients self-pay to keep their records confidential and to have control over their therapy process. Many insurance companies restrict the number of sessions you can have per year and require medical diagnosis, which becomes part of your medical record.  

You may choose to pay privately or file with your insurance plan. If you choose to file with your insurance plan, you will need to pay the regular fee at the time of your visit, and you will be provided with a monthly receipt to file a claim with your insurance company. It is important that you make sure that your insurance provides out of network benefits for mental health, if you wish to use your insurance.

Counseling Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?

You may be able to use Out of Network Benefits
* I am not a contracted insurance provider, however many plans allow you to use out of network benefits to pay for counseling services. 

*If you have out of network coverage on your PPO plan your sessions might be covered. Please ask your insurance company if you have “Out of network coverage for out-patient mental health services”.

Please be aware that although we verify all benefits prior to your first session as a courtesy, your insurance will never guarantee that what they tell us is accurate.  With that in mind, you are ultimately responsible for knowing your benefits and the cost of sessions that are not covered by your insurance.

*Insurance Notice
Please note that if you file insurance, I am required to to assign a diagnosis, which will become a part of your permanent health care records. If you would like to discuss other options, please let us know prior to your first appointment.


*We are not a provider for Medicaid, Medicare, or TriCare


Payment
Cash, debit and credit card are accepted for payment. If your health insurance plan permits for counseling services as an out-of-network provider, I will provide you with a superbill (monthly) so that your health plan can reimburse you , however you will be responsible to pay the full amount of the session before each visit.

Cancellation Policy
Your time slot is dedicated to you alone. Clients are requested to give notice as soon as possible when canceling an appointment so the counseling hour will be available for someone else. This will ensure that everyone can have alternate appointment opportunities when unexpected life events disturb our weekly routine. Unfortunately, appointments canceled with less than 24 hour notice or broken appointments will be charged $25.
