Therapy is an investment in you, in your relationships and your well-being. To ensure that I am able to focus on what is most helpful for my clients and their concerns, rather than insurance requirements (e.g., diagnosis, specific techniques in sessions, session and time limits), I am not in-network with insurance. If you wish to submit to your insurance, I am happy to supply you with the documentation needed to file a claim for possible out-of-network reimbursement. You are responsible for the fee ($175/session) at the time of your session. Assessments and letters for gender-affirming medical and legal procedures are also $175/session, with an additional $175 letter writing fee. I accept credit, debit, HSA/FSA (as well as cash and check if in-person services are being provided).
If you plan to use benefits through your insurance company, please speak with them prior to scheduling a consultation with me. I would be happy to work with you, though I respect your financial needs and understand that insurance coverage and reimbursement may be important. Your insurance company’s phone number can be found on the back of your insurance card. Questions that you may wish to ask your insurance company include:
-Do my benefits cover mental health?
-If I have mental health benefits, do my benefits include out-of-network providers?
-What portion of the amount that I pay will I be reimbursed upon seeing an out-of-network mental health provider?
-Do I need pre-approval or a referral before obtaining out-of-network mental health services to be reimbursed?
-How and where do I submit my bills for out-of-network mental health services?
