It's important that you carefully evaluate your resources before starting therapy. This way we can set reasonable goals and not have the treatment process interrupted unexpectedly.
My fee for individual therapy sessions is $165 per session, and payment is due at the end of each session. I do not accept health insurance; however, my services are often considered reimbursable by medical insurance plans. I can provide you with a receipt, with the appropriate coding, so that you may submit your own claims directly for any out-of-network benefits you may have.
When contacting your insurance company to find if they are willing to reimburse you for sessions delivered by a provider who is not in their network, you should ask the following questions concerning mental health treatment:
1. Does my plan require a referral for therapy? 2. Does my plan require prior authorization for therapy? 3. Is there a limit to the amount of sessions per treatment period? 4. Do you reimburse for the following codes: 90791 - Initial Assessment 90834 - 45 Minute Individual Therapy Session 90837 - 60 Minute Individual Therapy Session
Please understand that insurance companies also require a formal medical / mental health diagnosis in order to reimburse you for your psychotherapy sessions. General wellness visits or coaching sessions are not something commonly reimbursed.
Please contact me with any questions you may have about the process and what conditions / presentations are considered medially necessary (and reimbursable) vs which may constitute a wellness visit / life coaching.
