*This fee structure follows the time conventions developed by the American Medical Association and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, in consultation with the American Psychiatric Association (APA).

I make every effort to take into account your economic situation when negotiating fees. I am able to offer my services, if necessary, with an administrative discount–meaning that you may be eligible for a fee discount if you are uninsured and your financial situation warrants it. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your specific needs.

Using Your Insurance Coverage to Pay for Treatment

Please be aware that I only accept Medicare Part B as an ‘in-network’ provider. I am considered ‘out-of-network’ for ALL other insurances.

However, I am happy to provide you a record of our sessions (and your payments) in the form of a ‘superbill’, which you may submit to your insurer. Out-of-network therapy services are typically covered only in part by health insurance or employee benefit plans. Please check your coverage very carefully by asking the following questions of your insurance provider:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits? If so, is my outpatient mental health insurance provider the same as my general health insurance provider? (Often, your mental health insurance provider will be named on the back of your insurance card.)
  • What is my out-of-network deductible and has it been met for this calendar year?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount and co-pay/co-insurance fee per therapy session?
  • Is approval or a referral required from my primary care physician?

Payment

All fees will be negotiated prior to the commencement of services. I accept cash, check, debit cards (including HSA/FlexSpend debit cards), and Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover credit cards. Additionally, I am able to accept payments through PayPal and Chase QuickPay. Payment must made prior to or by the close of each session, unless other billing arrangements have been made.
