Rates & Insurance
Cost of Services: $150 (therapy session); $300 (first appointment/intake session). These are the rates without insurance coverage. The actual "out-of-pocket" cost of services (the portion of costs not covered by insurance) depends on the client's insurance coverage. Insurance plans almost always include a deductible amount, which is the amount of out-of-pocket costs that must be paid during the benefit year before the insurance company provides coverage. Almost all insurance plans require a copay for each session; this is due at the time of service. Your insurance coverage may state that they cover a certain percentage of the costs, such as 80%, and that you are responsible for the remaining 20%. This applies to the contracted rate that is allowed by the insurance company. In other words, each insurance company pays a different amount for a particular type of service, and the provider agrees to accept that rate, which is always less than the provider's full hourly rate. We are in a complex and changing phase of insurance coverage. It can be confusing and frustrating to understand, for both the provider and the client. If you have questions about the mental health coverage on your insurance plan, it is best to contact your insurance company directly. I have a billing service; they check benefits upon the initiation of services, but the client has the primary responsiblity for clarifying and understanding their insurance coverage, and is responsible for paying the amount not covered by insurance.
