Insurance & Payment Information

We provide services to individuals through insurance or self pay.

Insurance

Please note that accepting insurance benefits has both advantages and disadvantages. In order to assist you in your decision to utilize your insurance benefits or pay privately, be advised of the following points:

  • Insurance:
    • Insurance companies typically reimburse providers for the mental health issues they deem as necessary.
    • Insurance companies determine the number of sessions and length of treatment due to managed care. Typically, insurance will only authorize a pre-determined number of sessions.
  • Private/Self Pay:
    • Treatment is provided without a diagnosis.
    • Client and clinician determine the length and frequency of treatment based upon preference and needs.

Rates/fees for Self Pay

    • $90 – Each subsequent session

Insurance Plans

We accept many major insurance plans. Most insurance companies reimburse a percentage of a session cost depending on the plan. To determine your mental health benefits, you should contact your insurance carrier by calling the phone number for customer service located on your insurance card. When checking your coverage, the following questions may be helpful to ask:

  • What are my mental health insurance benefits?
  • Do I have a deductible and if so, has it been met?
  • How many sessions does my insurance plan cover per year?
  • What is the coverage amount per session?
  • Is prior authorization required from my primary care physician?
