FEES + INSURANCE
Before scheduling an appointment, I offer a free 15 minute consultation to obtain relevant information and determine fit.
I am an out-of-network provider for most PPO/POS insurance plans. This means that if your plan includes out-of-network benefits, you can collect partial reimbursement from your insurance company for the cost of sessions. (PPO/POS plans often reimburse therapy clients for 60-80% of session costs. Every plan is different, so please check with your insurance provider to determine your out-of-network arrangement.) Please note, I cannot guarantee you will receive reimbursements as all interactions with your insurance company are your responsibility.
When contacting your insurance company it can be helpful to ask:
Do I have out of network benefits for outpatient or behavioral health services
What are the benefits?
Do I need a referral or pre-authorization to use my out-of-network benefits?
What percentage of the service fee is covered?
How do I submit receipts/superbills for reimbursement? (Most insurance companies allow for invoices to be submitted via their website.)
My out of pocket fees are:
Initial Individual Assessment
50 minutes- $225
I also offer a limited number of sliding scale spots, the availability of which depend on financial situation, time and scheduling of sessions.
GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE
Notice to clients and prospective clients:
Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service, or at any time during treatment.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, or how to dispute a bill, see your Estimate, or visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
