Rates & Insurance

​

My rate is $120 for a 55-minute session.  Please pay for each session at its end.  In circumstances of financial hardship, I am willing to negotiate a fee adjustment or payment plan.  

​

I am an in-network provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO and HMO, BCBS Medicare Advantage and United Health Care and am happy to submit claims to your insurance company.  You are responsible for your copay or coinsurance at the time of service.  If you would like to use other insurance benefits and see me as an out-of-network provider I can bill your insurance company directly for out-of-network benefits or I would be happy to supply you with receipts for reimbursement.

​

You can call your insurance company to find our what they will contribute towards sessions. You will want to ask for their in-network benefits (BCBS or UHC) or out-of-network benefits (all other providers) for “out-patient mental health services”. Ask for your copay or coinsurance responsibility, and if you have a deductible to meet before the insurance will contribute.
