I am an in-network provider with BlueCross BlueShield, PreferredOne, and Aetna insurance companies and will bill them on your behalf.
For all other insurance I am an out-of-network provider. In these cases, I do not bill your insurance company directly. Instead, you pay for your session out of pocket and then may submit to your insurance for reimbursement based on your out-of-network benefits. Plans and requirements for reimbursement vary; I encourage you to contact your insurance company to determine your out-of-network benefits. Flexible spending accounts or health savings accounts may also be used.
Typical sessions are $150 per 50-minute hour; I accept cash, check, or credit card. Couples often find it useful to schedule longer sessions; fees can be discussed to determine feasibility.
Due to the nature of the work, discernment counseling requires longer sessions. The initial session is 2-hours and charged accordingly; any subsequent sessions are 90 minutes. Insurance may cover part or all of this, using either in-network or out-of-network benefits. The discernment counseling process usually takes between 1-5 sessions.
Cancellation Policy & Fees
Because your session time is reserved for you exclusively, I request a minimum of 24 hours notice for cancellation to allow me time to rebook the session; less than this will result in a charge of $125.
