Rates & Insurance

Self-pay Rates (Out of Network)

$190 for the first two intake sessions and $170 per session ongoing. Sessions are 55-60 minutes.

For those looking to use an insurance plan you may check with your insurance company to see if they offer out of network benefits.

Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

Do I have out-of-network benefits for mental health services? You can specifically ask about procedure codes 90791 (intake) and 90837 (53-60 minute therapy session).
If I have out of network coverage, is there a deductible that needs to be met before I can start obtaining reimbursement?
If so, how much is this deductible and how far am I in meeting it for this calendar year (or the year the plan runs on)?
What percentage of my services will you reimburse for once my deductible is met?
What is the process to submit out-of-network reimbursement?

Payment

Cash and all major credit cards accepted for payment.

Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel your appointment you must do so 48 hours ahead of your appointment or you will be responsible for the full fee of $170.

Good Faith Estimate Notice

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. 

Under the law, health care providers need 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.
