Payment and Insurance:
It can be helpful to think of therapy as an investment in yourself. To get results, it will take time and money. You can use your insurance benefits to pay for my services but I am not a participating provider on any insurance panels. I am an “out-of-network” provider. This means that if your insurance includes out-of-network benefits, you should receive reimbursement for a significant portion of therapy. The exact percentage varies by insurance company and plan. See “Questions for Your Insurance Provider” below to help guide your discussions with your provider.
I accept payment via cash, check or credit card. If you additional questions about the reimbursement process or would like to discuss my current fees, please feel free to contact me.
Questions for Your Insurance Provider
While I do not accept insurance, you can use insurance benefits to pay for my services. Check your health insurance coverage carefully. Finding answers to the following questions can be helpful in determining how much therapy will cost:
- Do I have “out-of-network” mental health insurance benefits?
- What is my deductible amount and has it been met this insurance year?
- What is the “customary rate” per therapy session? (for Individual Psychotherapy - CPT code 90834, in zip code 20016; Couples Counseling – CPT Code 90847)
- What percentage of the customary rate does my plan cover?
- How many sessions a year does my health insurance cover?
- What paperwork is required for me to submit a claim for reimbursement?
- Do I need to get a referral from my primary care doctor to be eligible for reimbursement?
Please remember that you, not your insurance provider, are ultimately responsible for full payment of my fees.
