FEES AND INSURANCE

FEES AND INSURANCE

Information is Power: A psychological evaluation will either provide peace of mind or give you guidance for appropriate next steps.

For psychological evaluations, I provide:

  1. An extensive diagnostic interview of the child’s background and functioning.

  2. A variety of standardized testing assessments to determine the information needed to inform a diagnosis.

  3. All work done by an experienced psychologist in a comfortable setting.

  4. An opportunity for parents to get their questions answered.

  5. Appointments available in the next month

  6. A quick turnaround for reports (typically 1 week following the last assessment appointment).

  7. Recommendations for appropriate next steps.

Evaluations may take 2-3 sessions, the results of which are documented in a written report. Testing appointments are typically followed by a 1-hour informing appointment, when I go though the report and answer any questions about the evaluation. The price for a complete evaluation varies, depending on which testing is necessary.

Forms of Payment Cash, check, and major credit cards are accepted. Payment is due at time of session. You can store a credit card on file in the client portal to make payments easy.

Therapy is an investment. For therapy clients, I provide:

  • In-person and tele-therapy sessions for convenience with scheduling and flexibility

  • A Client Portal to schedule appointments online, get online or email reminders, and securely text between sessions

  • Coordinating with other health & wellness providers if needed to ensure quality in your treatment

Fees

Consultation Appointments are 60 minutes and may be scheduled online. The fee for consultation appointments is $150, paid at the time of booking. Prior to the appointment, the family completes an online informational form and can share any relevant records you would like me to look at before we meet. At this time, consultation appointments are being held over Video Conferencing.

Distance Evaluations (Online testing) are conducted in 2 blocks, and the cost for evaluation varies depending on the testing needed. Estimated evaluation costs are typically discussed during a consultation appointment, once the psychologist knows the scope of testing needed.

Cancellation Policy: 48 hours notice of cancellation is required for no charge. If cancellation occurs within 48 hours of appointment, half of the set rate will be charged. No shows will be charged the full rate.

Insurance

I am not on any insurance panels and provide therapy and evaluations as an out-of-network provider. Through your insurance, you may be eligible to receive reimbursement for our sessions. I can provide documentation of our work together that can be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement. You can contact your health insurance provider to determine whether they will cover a portion of my fees as an out-of-network provider. Important information to understand is whether you have mental health insurance benefits, what benefits the company provides for out-of-network providers, how your deductible works, and how much they will cover per session.

Pre-tax dollars set aside for medical expenses in your Health Saving Account can be used for psychological services, regardless of whether you are using in- or out-of-network providers.

 

Why don’t I accept insurance?

Being an out of network provider allows me to provide quality care and flexibility with your treatment. It also provides you with confidentiality, as our treatment does not need to be audited or reported to an insurance company. Insurance companies reimburse psychologists very poorly for therapy and testing services, the result of which is professionals cutting corners, using students to do work, and being pushed into a lower standard of care.

By not working with insurance, I am able to ensure you the quality treatment you deserve.
