My 50-minute therapy session fee is $150. You will not be charged for the first session if we decide not to work together. I currently accept cash, check, or credit card. I reserve a limited number of sliding scale openings for those with financial need. Please call 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). Additional questions you should ask your insurance provider are:
What is my deductible?
How many sessions per year does my plan cover?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
