Rates & Insurance
I charge $175 per therapeutic hour. If I’m in network with your insurance there is likely a discounted rate. Also, if you have insurance it is possible that you might only have a copay or coinsurance (depending on if you have to meet a deductible or not). If you don’t have insurance or would prefer to not use it, I have a cash rate of $140 per 50 minute session.
I am in network with the following insurance companies: BCBS, United Healthcare, UMR, Qual Choice, Cigna, Ambetter and Aetna (only in Texas).
I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
- Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
- Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
- Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
- Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
- Does my plan cover telehealth and if so, does it have to go through a third party vendor (i.e. MD Live or Teladoc, etc.)?
I accept all major credit cards as forms of payment. I use a HIPAA compliant version of Ivy Pay to charge credit cards. Payment is due at the time of services unless other arrangements have been made.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. I do have a late cancellation fee/no show fee of $100.
GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
