Professional Fees

Your initial 15 minute phone consult is free.

 

My standard fee for a 50 minute intake session or psychotherapy session is $250.

If you are interested in working together more often, we can schedule multiple sessions per week. If it is clinically appropriate and you prefer to meet every other week or monthly, we can schedule your sessions accordingly. 

  

Accepted Payment Methods:

Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club as well as Debit cards, Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) cards, and Health Savings Accounts (HSA) cards. Payment is processed after the completion of each appointment or other professional contact.

Insurance


Although I am on the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Lyra Health panel, I do not participate on any other insurance provider panels. Some insurance companies will reimburse a portion of the fee paid to out-of-network psychologists. I am happy to provide you with a receipt which will contain the information typically needed for reimbursement. However, many insurance companies do not cover online video therapy sessions. Please be aware, the majority of insurance companies will only reimburse for "medical necessity." Therefore, in order to qualify for reimbursement, you will need to meet criteria for a psychiatric illness diagnosis and not all diagnoses are covered by insurance. Also, despite being an out-of-network psychologist, the insurance company may request access to your records to be reviewed by their employees (clinical and/or non-clinical) in order to reimburse you.

***If you would like to use your out-of-network benefits but don't want the hassle of submitting the paperwork to your insurance company, Reimbursify and Thrizer, are mobile medical insurance claim submission services providing out-of-network filings with real time updates for patients for a small fee. I have no affiliation with either of these companies and cannot vouch for their work***

In planning for your treatment, you may want to call your insurance and inquire:
- “Does my plan reimburse out-of-network providers?”
- “What are the mental health services covered by my insurance plan cover?”
- “Does my plan include out-of-network benefits for mental health care? Specifically, for outpatient online video psychotherapy (telehealth, telemental health) with a licensed psychologist?”
- “Do I have a deductible for out-of-network mental health services?” If yes, “what is the remaining amount I will have to pay before my health plan starts to reimburse me for fees that I pay out-of-pocket?”
- “What is the maximum amount my plan will reimburse for mental health service code 90834 with a Psychologist?” If the representative does not provide a clear answer, ask: “What is the maximum allowed amount for mental health service code 90834 with a psychotherapist, and what percentage of the maximum allowed amount will my plan pay?” (This percentage of the maximum allowed amount is the amount you would receive as reimbursement.)
- “Is there a limit to the number of sessions per calendar year?”

If you have any questions, we can discuss them in your free phone consult.
