Therapy sessions of 50 minutes of face-to-face time and 10 minutes of documentation time are billed at a rate of $130.00 per hour and a sliding scale fee structure is provided to some clients based on financial need. If an insurance claim is turned down for any reason, then you are responsible for paying for the session(s).
Cancellation Policy: If you cannot make it to an appointment and you do not provide 24-hour advance notification, you will be charged the full fee for the missed session.
- I am an in-network Medicare and Cigna.
- I am an out-of-network provider for Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield as well as all other insurance providers. Although this means I have no in-network contract with these providers, I am happy to provide you with a completed billing form, which you can submit to your insurance carrier so you can be reimbursed their allotted amount. Before making an appointment, please be sure to check with your provider to see if they provide reimbursement for out-of-network therapists.
Why Self-Pay May Be the Right Choice for You
There are a number of benefits to paying out of pocket with the most prominent advantage being that you and I together make treatment decisions, rather than the insurance provider. Therefore, it is up to us to decide how often we will meet and when treatment is finished. As a self-pay client, I offer eligibility for an interest-free payment plan based on consideration of both your financial circumstances and your treatment goals.
An additional consideration for opting not to go through your insurance provider is that in order to pay for your healthcare services, your insurance company must have a mental disorder diagnosis provided by me. Once the insurance company takes on payment for therapy services, you may be limited to a certain number of therapy sessions, which requires me to submit on-going progress reports and treatment plans to justify this service.
It is not unusual for individuals in therapy to feel uneasy with being given a mental disorder diagnosis. This unease may prevent individuals from seeking therapy because it doesn’t feel private or safe even though insurance providers are required by law to keep all medical information confidential. When insurance providers are involved, there are many more people involved in your therapy and it is up to the discretion of your insurance provider to determine whether or not psychotherapy should continue.
I am able to offer self-pay clients a payment plan tailored in a way that doesn’t place an undue financial burden, which may prevent you from receiving the long-term benefits of an adequate course of therapy treatment. Research has consistently shown when insurance providers restrict access to psychotherapy, clients generally have less beneficial outcomes. During our initial session, we will discuss your financial circumstances and together will determine how best to manage the business end of our working therapeutic relationship. The services I provide can benefit you greatly not only during the time of active treatment, but also long after psychotherapy has ended. I am committed to providing a compassionate, safe environment and will work together to bring about the best therapeutic outcome by helping you to develop the skills to live a more valued and fulfilling life.
