The following is a list of frequently asked questions about the financial aspect of therapy. If you do not see your question here, please feel free to email it to me.
What are your fees?
Feel free to contact me for more information about counseling fees.
Do you accept insurance?
I am happy to bill your insurance company as an out-of-network provider.
How much of the therapy session will be covered by insurance?
Once your yearly deductible (if applicable) is satisfied, insurance companies tend to reimburse 60-90% of the service fee. Keep in mind that reimbursement rates vary across health plans. I encourage you to contact your insurance company to ascertain the out-of-network parameters of your health plan. The list of questions below will help you do this.
How can I find out if insurance will cover outpatient psychotherapy?
Simple! Just log in to your insurance carrier's website or call the member customer service phone number listed on your insurance identification card. Obtain the answers to the following questions:
Does my plan cover out-of-network outpatient mental health visits?
If I choose to see someone who is out-of-network, what is my deductible and how much of it remains for the calendar year?
After my deductible is met, at what rate will I be reimbursed for out-of-network services?
Does my plan require my primary care physician to pre-authorize mental health visits?
