Insurance, Policies, and Fees

In-network:

I participate in five insurance panels:

  • Medicare
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield
  • POMCO
  • 1199
  • Coventry

In these cases, I accept co-pays in the amounts determined by each individual’s insurance policy, once all deductibles have been met.  If you have one of these plans, please be prepared to provide your ID number, address, date of birth and your consent to call them when we meet, so I can verify coverage.

If you have health insurance with out-of-network coverage, some of the fee may be reimbursed directly to you by your insurance provider. You may have more insurance coverage for out-of-network benefits than you realize. Please check with your plan. Here are some questions that may be helpful when you speak to them:

  • Does my plan include out-of-network coverage?
  • Do I need to meet a deductible prior to being reimbursed? If so, what is my individual deductible? Family deductible?
  • Have any of my deductibles been met for this year?
  • What is the co-insurance (usually a percentage) or my co-pay?
  • Is approval for treatment required from my primary care physician?

Cancellations

I require 24 hours’ notice if an appointment must be cancelled or changed.  If another time is available the same week, we can reschedule with no additional fee. If you cancel with less than 24 hours’ notice, you will be billed the full regular fee for the missed session.

If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.

Even if you have insurance coverage, if you cancel or do not show up for an appointment, you are responsible for the full fee (including the co-pay, co-insurance, and any deductible charges). Due to contract limitations, I am unable to bill insurance if we do not have a session.

Rates

$100-$200 per individual 50-minute session

Rates for longer sessions (including Psychodrama, couples/family and Eye Movement therapy are prorated accordingly.
