Rates & Insurance

 

Rates

As of 5/1/18, the rate for an initial (90-minute) individual or family intake appointment is $220.00. Thereafter, the rate for a standard 50-minute follow-up session is $160.00.

Couples therapy sessions regularly take up to 90 minutes per session, and are therefore set at the flat rate of $220 per session (regardless of whether the session is an intake or a follow-up appointment).


All fees are due at the time of service.

Payment

Payment is accepted in the form of cash, check, all major credit cards, and also health savings accounts. 
Payment is due in full 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 plans:

  • Cigna

  • United/Optum


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.
