Insurance and Rates
Coverage You Can Count On
For psychotherapy sessions, you may use your insurance benefits if I am considered an in network provider with your insurance.
Navigating the managed care system can be extremely overwhelming, and my goal is to help make this process as smooth as possible for you and your family. When you call to schedule your first appointment with me, I will collect your insurance information over the phone and call to verify your mental health coverage and benefits prior to your first appointment. You will be asked to provide current insurance information throughout the duration of your services. If I am contracted with your insurance provider, my office will file all claims for you, on your behalf, and you will be responsible for any co-payment, co-insurance or payment towards deductible at the time of service.
Currently, in network and accepting the following insurances plans:
Blue Cross Blue Shield
United Health Care
Oxford Health Plans
Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare
Cigna (coming March 2022)
The rate of services, coinsurance, copays, and what is and is not covered when using insurance is set by your insurance. You can identify this information through contacting your insurance directly and providing them my name and NPI number 1871036640.
For Patients using Optum, Oscar, United Health Care, Oxford Health Plans, and Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare:
I’ve developed a relationship with Alma, a growing network of mental health providers. This allows for me to be serve and be matched with patients in states where I am licensed, including Arizona and Illinois. We will use this platform for our sessions. They have a deep understanding of my services and handle the billing and contact with your insurance company--the rest is up to me!
For patients without insurance, whom I may not be in network with your insurance, or those choosing to not use insurance benefits:
Many choose to work with me as a therapist even though I may not be in-network with their insurance company or if you do not have insurance or choose not to use insurance. I also accept direct fee for service for therapy, consultation, and supervision services.
If you are not insured, do not have out-of-network benefits with your insurance, or you choose to not use your insurance benefits, then you may pay for your services at my direct fee for service rate. The rate for my initial Assessment Session is $145 and ongoing sessions after that are $125. Consultation sessions and Supervision sessions are at a direct rate of $100 per session. Supervision sessions also include completing necessary paperwork with you for the licensure application.
If I am not contracted with your insurance but you have the out-of-network/out-of-pocket benefits, then this rate is set through the fee schedule of the insurance. The out-of-network and direct fee-for-service will be due at the time of your appointment. I will provide you a Good Faith Estimate of Services in accordance with the No Surprise Act (NSA). If requested, then I will prepare a monthly superbill for you to submit to your insurance company, including dates of service, diagnosis and procedure codes, and provider identification numbers necessary to process your claim and for you to send to your insurance company to receive reimbursement directly from them. Please contact me directly for the out-of-pocket rate with your insurance for our sessions. Insurances will at times reimburse this rate.
I always encourage you to contact your insurance plan ahead of time to discuss their policy for out-of-network fees and coverage, as this is often plan-specific.
