My 50-minute therapy session fee is $170 for individuals. I see couples for 80-minute sessions at $270 as I have found extended session time to be most beneficial within this context. I do not charge for intake sessions should we decide not to move forward with therapy. I currently accept cash, check, or credit card. I reserve a limited number of sliding scale openings for those with financial need. Please contact me for availability if this option is something you are interested in.
I am considered an “out-of-network” provider, meaning that I am not on any managed-care or preferred provider lists through insurance companies. My decision not to partner with insurance companies helps ensure that your therapy is kept confidential and that decisions about the length and method of treatment will be made between you and me as a joint partnership.
For those who wish to use their insurance to help with the cost of therapy, I will provide a “superbill” statement at the end of each month that you can submit to your insurance provider. Many insurance plans provide some coverage for out-of-network behavioral health services. If you are interested in using your insurance to cover a portion of our sessions, please contact your insurance company directly to determine their reimbursement policy for out-of-network providers. They will likely ask you for the CPT codes used for billing purposes. The primary CPT code I use for the services I provide is 90834 (individual therapy) and 90847 (couples therapy).
The No Surprises Act and “Good Faith Estimates”
The No Surprise Act (Section 2799B-6 of the Public Service Act) is a federal law which gives you the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to provide patients who do not have insurance, or who are not using insurance, an estimate of expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to request a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items of services at any time under this law. You can also ask your health care provider for a Good Faith Estimate prior to receiving services.
