Some people prefer not to apply insurance coverage to psychiatric treatment, but for those who wish to do so, I now accept Blue Cross Blue Shield. For those covered by other companies, I do not file claims, but I offer a bill documenting services rendered that may be submitted for out-of-network reimbursement from your insurance company. However, choosing not to file also insures that your insurance company will not have access to your psychiatric records.
For those not covered by BCBS, I aim to set fees that are reasonable and affordable:
Initial Assessment (75 minutes): $185
Psychotherapy session (55 minutes): $135
Medication management/brief psychotherapy session (30 minutes): $90
I reserve the right to charge for additional documentation and clinical services undertaken on your behalf (such as letters or phone calls to third parties as well as records requests) on a prorated basis of $120 per hour.
Payment is expected at the time of service; cash, checks, and debit/credit cards are accepted (for the latter I add a 3% processing fee). I do reserve the right to charge for missed appointments if not cancelled beforehand.
