Typical Fees- Typical and customary fee is $125 per 55-minute therapy session. Intake sessions are $150. A sliding fee based on income is available. Please contact me for details.
Insurance and other options- I am in-network with Excellus BCBS, Aetna and Cigna insurance. For more information about your specific coverage, please contact your insurance agency. I will verify your benefits prior to our first session but it is helpful for you to also be informed of your coverage. If you have other insurance, I am unable to directly bill them for my services. However, there are other options that may work:
Out-of-network benefits: Some insurance plans allow for seeing providers that are not in network and provide reimbursement if you submit an itemized receipt from the provider. Please check with your insurance carrier whether this is an option for you. Clients are responsible for submitting receipts to insurers for reimbursement.
HSA Debit Cards and Flexible Spending Accounts: If you have an HSA/FSA to use for various medical needs (co-pays, prescriptions, etc.), you may be able to use this to pay for counseling sessions. Please check with your insurance carrier.
Deductible: If you have a high deductible insurance plan, itemized receipts are provided for sessions to submit to your insurance carrier. Also worth noting, if you have not yet reached your deductible, you will be paying the full fee to any provider until you reach your deductible. Clients are responsible for submitting receipts to their insurance carrier.
Direct Pay: I accept cash, check, credit (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express) and HSA account debit cards. This can be completed at the end of our sessions. Many clients find it more convenient to pay electronically via online billing. I currently use IvyPay Services as they offer secure, encrypted billing that can store your preferred payment option for future appointments. This makes it a quick and easy way to pay for your sessions. This also permits you to pay for your treatment prior to or the same day as your session without taking time from our meetings.
