The standard fee for a 50-60 minute counseling session is $150. We do offer reduced fees based on client need and counselor availability.
As a clinic, we are not considered in-network with any insurance company, the primary reasons for this being our commitment to the integrity of your mental health treatment as well as your confidentiality. When using your in-network insurance benefits for mental health care, your insurance carrier will have the right to place restrictions on the type of therapy done, the issues that are acceptable to be treated, and the duration of the treatment.
Another important factor to be aware of related to insurance is your confidentiality. When using your insurance, you must be given a clinical mental health diagnosis. Based on the fact that a mental health diagnosis is required in order for your treatment to be approved, it is also necessary that your diagnosis become part of your permanent medical record which can be reported by your insurance company to the Medical Information Bureau. Although much progress has been made in reducing the stigma associated with mental health issues, there are still some jobs and positions where you may be penalized if certain mental health diagnoses were to appear on your record.
By using private pay for your mental health needs, you and your therapist alone have control over the disclosure, nature, and duration, of your treatment.
Many of our clients choose to use their out of network insurance benefits for a partial fee reimbursement. After receiving payment from you, we can provide you with a receipt that will contain all of the needed codes and diagnostic information that your insurance company would require in order to allow you to utilize your out of network benefits.
You will need to contact your insurance company directly and find out if your plan has out of network coverage for mental healthcare. If yes, let our office know and we will ensure that you receive the proper receipt that you can then submit to your insurance company.
As a clinic, we partner with several different organizations which are able to provide either partial or full coverage of counseling expenses. Some of these organizations include:
Liz’s Legacy: Providing financial scholarships for children and teens 18 and under
Camaraderie Foundation: Providing full payment of services for any post 9-11 veteran and/or their family members.
Various churches and other non-profit organizations on an as needed basis.
