Cost of Services
The cost for initial appointments is $180.00. My 50-minute (standard) session rate is $160.00. I will send a complete list of fees with the initial paperwork. I accept cash, checks, and credit card payments. Most clients put a credit card on-file to cover costs.
Using Insurance for Treatment
I accept Blue Cross Blue Shield, UnitedHealthcare, UnitedHealthcare-Student Resources, Aetna, Cigna/Evernorth, and Medicare. I will submit claims to these insurance providers on your behalf.
If you use another insurance provider, you will need to submit claims on your own for reimbursement. These claims will be submitted as an out-of-network expense. At the end of our session, I will provide you with a “superbill” that you can submit to your insurance company for partial reimbursement.
You are strongly encouraged to contact your insurance provider before starting treatment, to determine the costs of treatment. For example, many clients are required to meet a deductible (usually at the beginning of each calendar year), before paying a co-pay only. Clients are responsible for any charges not covered by their insurance.
Information Released to Insurance Companies
Insurance providers require that I release confidential information (name, date of birth,diagnoses, service provided) to process claims and may periodically request records of our sessions (called an “insurance audit”) to determine if treatment is medically necessary.
If you choose to use insurance, I will make every effort to release only the most basic information necessary to process your claim(s). Please note, any information provided to an insurance provider, including information requested for insurance audits, will become a part of their confidential data bank.
Charges for Late Cancelations and Missed Appointments
I require a 24-hour advance notice for cancellations. For appointments cancelled within 24 hours of a scheduled appointment and missed appointments clients are charged a $100 fee. This fee will be charged to the credit card on file.
