Rates & Insurance

Rates
Intake (first) session:                       $200, 45-50-minutes.
Individual psychotherapy session:   $140, approximately 45 minutes.
Marital/couples therapy:                  $150, approximately 45 minutes.

A $10 administrative discount is offered for full payment by cash or check at the time of the session, when no billing or statements are required.

For those paying out of pocket, longer sessions are available at a pro-rated rate.  (Couples often find longer sessions to be useful.)


Insurance
I am covered by many insurance plans, including those with the following companies*:

  • AHC
  • Alliance
  • BlueCross / BlueShield
  • Cigna
  • Corphealth
  • HCN
  • HealthEOS
  • Humana
  • Medicare
  • Multiplan
  • United Healthcare / United Behavioral Health
  • WEA
  • WPPN
  • WPS
  • WellPoint

*However, changes may have occurred since this list was last updated, and plans and coverages change.  So please call your insurance provider (there typically is an 800 number on your insurance card) to confirm that I am covered by your plan.  When you call, it may be useful to ask the following questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • What is my copay?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • Is pre-approval, precertification, or preauthorization required (and if so, how do I get it)?

If you have questions about your insurance or whether I am covered, please feel free to contact me.

Reduced Fee
I offer discounted fees on a limited basis, depending on your circumstances and my schedule.  Please let me know if you would need a discounted fee.  This must be discussed and agreed to prior to scheduling an appointment.

Payment
Cash, check and credit cards (Visa/MC) are accepted for payment.  For those using a credit card, the payment-at-time-of-session discount noted above is not offered.  For other credit card payments (e.g., for copays or deductibles), I charge $5 for charges under $100 and $10 for charges of $100 or more to cover my credit card processing costs.

Cancellation Policy
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
