Fees & Insurance
My current fee for a 50-minute individual therapy session is $150. Longer sessions will be pro-rated. Cancellations require 48 hours’ notice to avoid being charged. I accept cash (in person only), checks, major credit/debit cards and HSA/FSA debit cards.
In order to help make therapy more accessible, I reserve a limited number of spaces in my practice for clients who cannot afford my regular rate and need to pay a lower fee. I offer these sliding scale spaces on an honor system and on a first come, first served basis. Please contact me to ask about sliding scale rates or current availability.*
*Please note, all of my sliding scale spaces are currently filled.
I do not accept insurance and am considered an out-of-network (OON) provider for most insurance plans. I can provide you with a statement to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement if you would like. You are responsible for communicating with your insurance company and understanding your plan's benefits and limitations. Here are some questions you may want to ask your insurance company:
Do I have OON mental health benefits?
What is my OON deductible?
Do I have a co-pay or co-insurance, and how much is it?
How can I request OON reimbursement?
Is there a limit to how many therapy sessions my plan covers in general or per year, and what is it?
What is the policy year (for example, January 1st to December 31st)?
What types of services (called CPT codes*) are covered and not covered? What are the OON reimbursement rates?
Does my plan cover telemental health (ie., virtual therapy)? Are reimbursement rates comparable to in person services?
Are there specific diagnoses (called ICD-10 codes) that are not covered, and what are they?
Do I need pre-authorization for psychotherapy or a referral from my Primary Care Provider?
*Your Good Faith Estimate (see below) will include a list of CPT codes that I typically use. You may also request this information at any time. I will be happy to provide you with a list of CPT codes so that you can ask your insurance company about their reimbursement rates.
Medicare, Medicaid & HMOs
Medicare, Medicaid and HMOs typically do not reimburse for out-of-network providers. If you are a Medicare beneficiary, Medicare requires you to sign a private contract with me indicating that you are aware Medicare will not pay for or reimburse you for these services. Please let me know if you are a Medicare recipient.
Good Faith Estimates
As an out-of-network provider, federal law requires me to give you a “good faith estimate” of how much your services will cost. Please click here for more information about good faith estimates.
