  • Rates & Insurance

    I view therapy as an investment in your future, one which I, in partnership with you, will work very hard to ensure it is a valuable experience for you and your family.

    • If I do not participate in-network with your insurance or you prefer to opt-out of using insurance, please contact me to discuss hourly rates.
    • Because I am out-of-network with most insurance plans, I am able to offer a Financial Hardship opportunity to provide increased access to quality mental health care at reduce price points. I base this off the current Federal Poverty Level. These spots are limited, please inquire.
    • Fees are subject to change and clients will be given ample notice if this occurs.

    Insurance

    Most people want to know: Can I use my insurance?

    Participating Insurance Companies (In-Network):

    • TriCare
    • UMR

    If you are a subscriber to these insurance plans, you will likely have mental health coverage. I recommend that you contact your insurance company to learn about your eligibility and benefits for “out patient mental health office visits”.

    Telehealth: Most plans are currently covering telehealth services, however you should check with your specific plan about these details.

    Out of Network:

    I am “Out of Network” with all other insurance plans. What this means:

    If you have out-of-network benefits you can check to see if my services will be reimbursed under your plan. You’ll want to ask: “What are my mental/behavioral health outpatient office visit benefits?” 

    For some insurance companies, such as BCBS and MVP, I can submit the claim electronically for you at no additional cost. Ask if I can do the same for your insurance company!

    Alternatively, I can provide a “Superbill” with all the necessary information on it and you send it to your insurance company for reimbursement, usually accompanied by a brief form. 

    _______________________________________________

    I have my Psychotherapy “R” Privilege, which is an LCSW who fulfills the requirements of the insurance law for supervised experience providing psychotherapy, is recognized in New York State as a reimbursable psychotherapist. The “R” privilege requires insurance carriers to provide reimbursement for psychotherapy services whenever a health insurance contract includes reimbursement of qualified psychologists and psychiatrists (http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/sw/lcswprivilege.htm).

    Payment

    I accept cash, checks and most major credit cards. Payment is due at the time of the service. Please email [email protected] for more information or submit a request form for services. You will receive a Financial Informed Consent clearly outlining all costs so there are no surprises.

    Cancellation Policy

    If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you will be charged a late cancellation/no show fee.
