My fee is $150.00 for the standard 50-minute session, and $180.00 for a 60-minute session. A 30 minute session is $90.00. A 90 minute session is $270.00--couples or family sessions generally require 90 minutes. These rates hold for all types of sessions: office, phone, Skype or Facetime. Sessions that run longer incur a proportionally increased fee. For clients who are in financial distress, I offer a sliding scale. Please call me to discuss your situation.
I employ a professional medical billing service - TGH Billing Service, Inc. - to file insurance claims for my patients. If you click on this link, it will take you directly to the page you will need to complete in order for us to obtain your mental health benefits. Make sure to choose me as your provider on the drop down list. Once completed, hit send and it will be sent in a secure manner to TGH Billing Service. They will check your insurance coverage and inform you and me of what your mental health coverage will be.
Please be aware that—except for patients eligible for benefits under medicare—I require payment in full at time of service. After filing your claim, my billing service will direct your insurance company to send any reimbursement directly to you. If you are eligible for medicare benefits, you will be responsible for paying any co-pay at the time of our session.
Note that health insurance companies require a diagnosis, and that this diagnosis will become part of your permanent records with the insurance company. If you will be using your insurance, it is wise check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
- Do I have mental health benefits?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
- How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network provider?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
I accept cash and checks.
If you need to cancel an appointment, I ask that you give me 24 hours notice. Except for emergency situations, I will have to charge you for the full cost of sessions that you do not cancel 24 hours in advance. I am always willing to do a phone session if illness, geography or time restraints make getting to my office difficult.
