Rates & Insurance

I provide psychotherapy on a fee for service basis. My standard fee is $225 for a 45-50 minute session, but I offer patients a sliding scale if their circumstances are strained.

Insurance Plans
I am a participating provider with the following insurance plans:

  • Aetna
  • Cigna
  • Empire BlueCross BlueShield

For all other insurance plans I am considered an out-of-network provider. As an out-of-network provider, I will provide you with a statement of services at the end of each month. Submit this statement to your insurance company, usually along with a 1500 Health Insurance Claim Form and your insurance provider will process reimbursement. Your insurance carrier will process your claim just as they would any other medical claim.

Please consult with your insurance provider to determine your level of coverage. Some typical questions you should ask your insurance provider include:
  1. Am I covered for out-of-network, outpatient mental health services?
  2. If so, what is my deductible?
  3. How many sessions am I covered for per year? What if there is medical necessity?
  4. What percentage of what the insurance company considers a customary and reasonable fee is covered by the insurance company, and what is my co-insurance (e.g., 80%-20%, 70%-30%, 50%-50%, etc.)?
If you have other questions about your out-of-network benefits, contact your health insurance provider directly.
