Rates and insurance

 

Rates
It is my goal to make psychotherapy accessible to all people.  It should not be a luxury or a tool only for a select few.  I understand that therapy can be expensive.  Contact me and we can discuss private rates.  If you are in need of a sliding scale rate we can discuss a fee based on your income.

 

Insurance
It is your responsibility to know your insurance coverage.  Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. I accept private pay as well as in-network and out-of-network benefits.  Please check your coverage carefully. You are responsible for paying for the uncovered portion. The best way to find out exactly what therapy will cost you is to call your insurance company directly and ask the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
  • Is my selected therapist an in-network provider with my plan?
  • How much 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?
  • Do I need prior authorization?

I am an in-network provider for:

  • Optum
  • United Health Care (not the Community Plan)
  • Oxford
  • Oscar

Payment
Payments can be made by cash, check and credit cards.  All services are payable at the time services are provided.

Late Arrivals, Cancellations and No show Appointments

Consistent appointments are essential to successful treatment. Your appointment time is reserved specifically for you. It is important to arrive on time as the length of a typical session is 45 minutes and missed time will not be made up for at the end of the session. In the event that you will be late for your appointment or that you need to reschedule, please contact me as soon as possible.  In the event that you need to cancel your appointment, at least a 48 hours notice is required or it will be considered a late cancellation and you will be charged 100% of the standard session fee.  Insurance companies generally do not reimburse for failed appointments. This makes you responsible for failed appointments, not the insurance company.
