Rates & Insurance

Insurance

I accept patients who are insured with Medicare with a supplemental insurance.  Check your coinsurance and your deductible. Until your deductible is covered you are responsible for my fee. 

When you contact me I will need copy of your card-front and back, your date of birth, address, and phone number. 

 My out-of-pocket fee is $275 per 50 minutes session to be paid the day of the session via Venmo, Zelle, or PayPal. I do offer a sliding fee scale.  

Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • What are my mental health benefits under my insurance plan?
  • Do I have a supplemental insurance besides Medicare?
  • Does my supplemental insurance cover my Medicare deductible and my coinsurance?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?  
  • What is my coinsurance?
  • What is my copay (different from coinsurance)?

Cancellation Policy
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy or consultation appointment, and you have not notified me with at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the no show fee of $100.

Payment

When paying out of pocket I prefer Zelle, but Venmo and PayPal are also accepted. 

Payment in full is due after each session; psychotherapy or consultation. This includes the coinsurance or copay.  If unpaid on the day after the session I will send you a request via Venmo or email you a bill for it.
