What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Will I be required to pay a copay?
Is there a limit to the number of sessions per year my plan covers?
What is my deductible?

Patient Responsibility Definitions:
Deductible: An amount of money you must pay before the insurance pays anything related to your care. You will be asked to pay any outstanding deductible at the time of service, if applicable.
Co- payment: An amount set by your insurance company. The amount depends on your specific plan. It is to be paid at the time of service, if applicable. Please check with your insurance company for more information.
Co- Insurance: A percentage set by your insurance plan that you must pay. For example, the insurance may pay 80% and the patient pays 20%. Please check with your insurance company for more information. You will be asked to pay any estimated co-insurance at the time of service, if applicable.
If you want to opt-out of using your insurance or are not presently covered by insurance, we have Professional Associate-level clinicians, Interns, and/or Practicum Students available as low-cost options.
Payment is due at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards.
The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist.
Information between a client and therapist cannot be disclosed to a third party
without written permission.
Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. We are required by law to report such incidences to the appropriate authorities immediately.
Threat of serious bodily harm to another person/s. We are required by law to notify the police and inform the intended victim.
Threat of self harm. We are required by law to take appropriate action to ensure personal safety.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment for any reason, notice must be received by the office by phone, email, or fax 24 hours prior. If an appointment cancellation is made with less than 24 hours notice a $50 fee (not covered by insurance companies) will be charged. For self-pay clients, the late cancellation fee is equivalent of your session's rate. In the event that a cancellation is not made and you simply do not show up to your appointment, you will be charged the full session amount (not covered by insurance).
Third Party Correspondence
There is a $70 per 1/2 hour charge for 3rd party correspondence and reports. This is NOT covered by insurance companies.
