Rates and Insurance
The fees for counseling services vary according to your payment source. Generally, if you are using an EAP (Employee Assistance Program) through your employer, there are no fees assessed to you. The EAP program will cover most of your expenses, with the exception of any additional reports or paperwork you may request (such as FMLA or Social Security Disability forms) that are not included in the EAP agreement.
If you are utilizing your health insurance benefits, you may be required to pay co-insurance, a co-payment, or deductible for your sessions, depending on your health insurance plan. Co-payments and co-insurance payments are due before each session starts. Deductibles are the out of pocket amount that you must pay before your insurance will pay.
Clients that prefer not to use EAP or health insurance benefits may pay privately. The intake fee for the first session is $185.00 and the fee per follow up therapy sessions is $125.00 for 50 minutes. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and personal checks. There is a $30.00 fee for returned checks. Payment plans are also available.
No Surprises Act and Good Faith Estimate
In compliance with the No Surprises Act that goes into effect January 1, 2022, all healthcare providers are required to notify clients of their Federal rights and protections against “surprise billing.”
This Act requires that we notify you of your federally protected rights to receive a notification when services are rendered by an out-of-network provider, if a client is uninsured, or if a client elects not to use their insurance (self pay).
If I am out of network with your insurance, if you are uninsured, or if you elect not to use your insurance, I am required to provide you with a Good Faith Estimate of the cost of services. It is difficult to determine the true length of treatment for mental health care, and each client has a right to decide how long they would like to participate in mental health care. This information will be sent to you before your first appointment.
The following insurances and EAPs are generally accepted (In network)
Please note that I am not a Medicare provider.
