I currently am an in-network provider for United Behavioral Health/ Optum Insurance and EAP. If you have UBH/Optum, please verify your benefits and request authorization for services. For those with other insurance carriers, you can use your insurance, if you have "out-of-network" benefits. In that instance, I will not bill your insurance directly; but I will provide you with a "Superbill" or HCFA form so that you may request reimbursement from your insurance company. Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- Do I have "out-of-network" benefits?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
There are major drawbacks to using insurance for mental health services. All insurance claims are stored on a national database called the Medical Information Bureau (MIB). Any and all future applications for health or life insurance, as well as some security clearances check with the MIB, and may be denied because of the information retained.
My standard rate is $125 per 50-minute session.
Reduced fee services are available on an "as needed" and limited basis.
Cash, check and all major credit cards accepted for payment.
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
