COSTS AND INSURANCE

What to know about paying for therapy

We accept some insurance carriers and out-of-pocket payment. We’re happy to provide a superbill to submit to any insurance carrier for out-of-network coverage (it is up to you to confirm what they’ll cover).

Insurance & Fees

We take Cigna and Optum Insurance, for which cost is determined in part by your insurance company

We provide a superbill for you to submit to your insurance carrier if you’d like to use out of network benefits

You are responsible for submitting superbills and other documentation to insurance as needed, as well as making sure that your insurance coverage is up to date and active

You will be financially responsible for any fees not covered by insurance, including those incurred due to a lapse in insurance or other issues

THE FINANCIAL DETAILS

How do we determine your session cost on our scale?

First, we trust you. When we discuss finances on the phone, we’ll ask you what you can afford in the range of $95 – $135. Please be honest – we charge fees for therapy so that we can stay in business and serve as many people as possible.

If your financial status changes – for example, you lose a job, or you get a new job, we re-visit what you can afford for your session.

We also take into consideration how often you are coming to therapy. Coming every week creates a different cost than coming every other week or once a month.

4 sessions per month @ $135 = $540/month
2 sessions per month @ $135 = $270/month
1 session per month @ $135 = $135/month

Assessing monthly cost rather than just weekly cost can be a helpful way to understand what you can afford.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know what my insurance covers?

Just like when you go see the doctor, insurance specifies your copay or co-insurance for a therapy session. You should be able to view your benefits online, call your carrier and ask about mental health outpatient or psychotherapy coverage, or even see the copay / co-insurance for a specialist on your insurance card.

When + how do I pay for therapy?

Payment for session is due immediately after session. Clients are required to keep a credit card on file, and I will charge this card after your session. We also accept check or cash, and can make arrangements for this payment for online sessions.

After an insurance session, what do I need to do?

Nothing! After your session, I’ll charge your card for whatever portion of session you are responsible for. I will then submit a claim to insurance so they can count your fee towards your deductible, and they can the other portion directly to me.

What if I can’t pay one week?

Please, call ahead so that we can discuss when you will be able to pay or so we can adjust your fee. If you can pay within the week, we can still have session. If you have an outstanding balance, we will not hold session until your balance is paid.
