Fees and Insurance

Payment:

Payment for services is expected at the time of each session.  I accept cash, checks and credit/debit cards.  Once a card is on-file in my practice management program, it no longer needs to be presented on a per session basis.

Standard non-insurance fees:

First appointment (if time not restricted by insurance) – 1 hr and 45 minutes – $250.

On-going individual appointments – 50 minutes – $125.

Non-Standard Meeting Times  – 60 minutes – $150  /  90 minutes – $225

Bipolar support groups – 90 min., every other week. $35 per session.

Support group meetings are billed at $70 per month for twice monthly meetings ($35/mtg).  If you do participate in a support group, payment is expected for each meeting, even if absent, until such time as you elect to no longer come to the group.  This reserves your ongoing spot in the group.

Insurance

I am an in-network provider for:

  • Anthem (BCBS)
  • Cigna
  • Magellan
  • Optima

If you’re covered by one of these insurance policies, you will only be responsible for payment of your co-pay and annual deductible.  If you have insurance that is different than those listed above, I’ll be glad to  provide you with a monthly invoice that you can submit to your insurance carrier and potentially receive reimbursement for out-of-network expenses.

If for some reason insurance does not cover the billed fees (annual deductible has not been met, policy has lapsed, billed services are not covered, etc.), then you will be fully responsible for all unpaid fees.
