1) PAYING FOR THERAPY
- How much does therapy cost? My current fees are based on $350 per 60 minutes. If you are part of couple, a family, or group your fee is prorated if we meet for shorter or longer than 60 minutes
- Can you pay with insurance? No. I accept no insurance plans. Instead, see below for information about what may be your Out-of-Network (OON) reimbursement from your insurance company.
- Can you afford it? If you can not afford my full fee, I will help you find a good fit referral.
2) INSURANCE REIMBURSEMENT
Sorry, I do not accept any insurance. However, your insurance company may reimburse you for an OON (Out-of-Network) a Ph.D. Psychologist like myself. Below are the questions to ask your insurance company about reimbursement.
FOLLOW THESE STEPS:
Before you contact me for a consultation, call your insurance’s membership phone line:
Ask if your particular contract will reimburse you for an OUT-OF-NETWORK Psychologist? If YES, then ask the following 4 questions:
- What is your Deductible?
- What is the Cap?
A money cap? Time cap? Or both?
(e.g they could reimburse you up to 30 sessions… or a $1,000… whichever is reached first.)
- What is the calendar “year”?
i.e. do they start counting sessions (after the deductible of course!) starting Jan 1st ? or some other start date (e.g. when you signed your contract, like Sept 1st).
- What does your insurance company consider a “reasonable and expected” fee for the region. Ask what is that fee based on the CPT-4 codes below.
- CPT-4 90847 Family or Couples Therapy
- CPT-4 90791 [Intake Evaluation – no medical services]
- CPT-4 90834 [Individual Psychotherapy (45 min.) or 90837 Individual Psychotherapy (60 min or more)]
- CPT-4 90853 Group Therapy [other than multi-family
** Be sure to add a “-95″for telehealth after the above codes.
After you get your insurance information, and are clear about your budget and what you can afford, I welcome your call or email to make a consultation appointmen
