Payment I accept cash or checks. Your payment or co-payment is expected on the day of your appointment.
Health Insurance: Most counseling services are covered in full or in part by your health insurance plan. I am an in-network provider for major insurance companies and most local business insurance plans. Most health care plans require you to pay a co-pay between $15 - $60/session depending on your specific insurance plan. Please call the membership services number on your health insurance card. Ask the following questions:
If your insurance plan does not pay for services, you are responsible to pay for counseling services you received.
Employee Assistance Plans: If you have and Employee Assistance Program, EAP, through your employer, a limited number counseling sessions may be covered at 100%. You will have to contact the EAP before your appointment to get a pre-authorization for services.
Medicare or Medicaid: I do not accept Medicare or Medicaid plans due to reimbursement difficulties.
Self Pay: $150 for the initial 55 minute assessment. $135 for subsequent 50 minute sessions. Senior Citizens Self Pay Rate is $65 per session. Medicare will NOT reimburse this.
