Payment and Insurance

Important things to be aware of when deciding how you will pay for services.

Fee-for-Service:

This option allows you to preserve the confidentiality of your personal information. It also means that the treatment we chose, including length of time and frequency, will be determined by you and I rather than your insurance company. My rate is $125-150 per 50-minute session. I accept cash, check, or credit/debit/FSA card.

If you fail to attend a scheduled session without 24-hour notice, the missed-session fee is $75.

Insurance:

I am an in-network provider for Medicare.

I am an out-of-network provider for other insurance companies.

I’ve chose to remain out of network for the following reasons:

  • To protect your privacy. As an out of network provider, insurance companies will not have access to your therapy records the way they do when your insurance company pays an in network provider.
  • To provide high quality, effective therapy based on what is best for you, not your insurance company. Insurance companies can limit the amount, frequency and type of therapy you receive. They do this to minimize their costs, not to provide the care you need. I offer therapy that treats your needs including addressing the root cause of ongoing problems rather than mere symptom-based approaches.

Using out-of-network benefits is a good way to maintain control over your therapy and your private information. It allows me to work for you, not your insurance company and it allows us to choose the goals, length, and type of therapy that is most effective for you.

How Out-of-Network Coverage works:

You are responsible for paying my fee-for-service rate at the end of each session. I will submit an out of network claim to your insurance company and they will reimburse you according to your out-of-network benefits. After you meet you out-of-network deductible, you receive a percentage of the cost of each session, typically 60-100%. I encourage you to contact your insurance company to learn about your specific out-of-network benefits.
