Rates and Insurance

Rates

Individual sessions are $200 and last 45 minutes. If you are unable to afford the full price please contact me as I do have reduced fee appointments available.

Insurance

Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
  • Am I required to first obtain a prior authorization or a referral from a primary care physician?
  • Does the insurance coverage run on a calendar year or from a specific date?
  • Do I have a deductible for out-of-network mental health benefits? If so, has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year will my insurance cover?
  • Will my insurance cover sessions from an LCSW provider, or does it only cover sessions from LCSW-R providers? (Some insurance providers will only cover LCSW-R providers)
  • What is the covered amount per session? (Insurance companies usually go by percentage of a customary rate).
  • What is the “customary” rate for a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in zip code 11242 using CPT code 90834?
  • What is the process for reimbursement with an out-of-network provider? Is there a specific form I must fill out?

Payment

Cash, check and all major credit cards, as well as flexible spending account (FSA) and health savings account (HSA) are accepted as forms of payment.

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.

Any Other Questions

Please contact me for any additional questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
