Rates & Insurance

 

Rates

The rate for an initial (90-minute) intake appointment is $220.00. Thereafter, the rate for a standard 50-minute follow-up session is $160.00.  All fees are due at the time of service.

Cancellation Policy

Consistency is key in reaching your therapeutic goals, so it is best to keep our regularly scheduled appointments. However, if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please do so within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment. If you cancel an appointment less than 24 hours in advance of our scheduled meeting, you will be responsible for your full session fee.

Insurance

If you choose to use your insurance, I am currently only accepting the following in-network plans:

  • Cigna/Evernorth

  • Lyra

  • MHN/Health Net

  • United/Optum/UMR

If I am not a provider with your specific plan but you have a PPO plan, there is a good chance that your insurance will provide some compensation for “out-of-network” providers. I am always happy to provide you with a Superbill to submit for reimbursement and to assist you in filling out the necessary paperwork.


If you are interested in working with me and feel that you would like your insurance to reimburse you for some or all of your costs, you will need to contact your insurance company and ask the following questions in order to determine your coverage for reimbursement:

  • 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?


Please understand that I cannot guarantee coverage, so be sure to check with your insurance company before we begin working together if you require your insurance to assist you.

Health Savings Accounts

Many people don't realize that if you have an employer-based health savings account, such as a Health Savings Account (HSA), Medical Savings Account (MSA), Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA), or Flexible Spending Account (FSA), you can use these funds to help you cover the cost of therapy!  Funds can be used for deductibles, co-payments, and qualified health expenses (including mental health) that aren't covered by insurance, such as those provided by out-of-network providers.

Good Faith Estimate


In compliance with the No Surprises Act that went into effect January 1, 2022, all healthcare providers are required to notify clients of their Federal rights and protections against potential “surprise billing.”

This Act requires that you are notified of your federally protected rights to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost when services are rendered by an out-of-network provider, if you are uninsured, or if you elect not to use your insurance.

It is difficult to determine the true length of treatment for mental health care, and each client has a right to decide how long they would like to participate in psychotherapy services. You and I will collaborate to determine how many sessions you may need. Nevertheless, you have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of your mental health services. 


You can ask me for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an appointment.  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, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 800-985-3059.
