    Rates & Insurance

    Rates

    My fee for therapy services is $300 per 50-minute session. I do offer longer sessions of 75 minutes for $450 as well. I have a limited number of sliding scales spots available in my practice, please ask me about this if you are interested to know more. 

    *I bill on a pro-rated basis for case management/professional consultation that goes beyond 15 minutes.

    Insurance

    I am not in-network with any insurance companies, but many insurance companies will reimburse a portion of my fee as part of ‘out-of-network’ benefits. You are responsible for paying the full session fee at the time of our appointment, and I can provide you with an itemized receipt (superbill) that you can submit to your insurance company. If you are interested in exploring your out-of-network benefits, I encourage you to call your insurance company first to find out what your mental health benefits are.

    Payment

    I accept all major credit cards as forms of payment. Payment is due in full at the start of each session.

    Cancellation Policy

    I uphold a 24-hour cancelation policy. That means that if you call or email to cancel with at least 24 hours of notice, you will not be charged for the original session time. If you miss the appointment or need to cancel within 24 hours, you will be charged the full session fee for the missed time slot. 

    No Surprises Act

    As part of the ‘No Surprises Act’ (H.R. 133) which took effect January 1 2022, you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.

    Under this new law, health care providers are required to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. 

    You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.

    You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.

    If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

    For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call (800) 985-3059.
