RATES AND INSURANCE
Our fee is $150.00 per session. We do offer sliding scale for non-insurance users in financial need or clients that have an insurance plan that I am not contracted with.
DC & MD Clients: We are in-network with BCBS PPOs, Cigna PPOs, and some Aetna plans.
Montana Clients: We are in-network with BCBS, Allegiance, Pacific Source, Montana Health Co-op, & First Choice Health Network.
All amounts declared as patient responsibility by your insurance (co-pay, deductible, co-insurance, etc.) are collected at the time of service.
For all other insurances, I am considered out-of-network but do provide monthly billing statements for you to submit to your health insurance provider. I recommend calling your insurance and asking if they reimburse for out-of-network outpatient mental health providers first, to assess what your reimbursement rates may be.
We cannot guarantee any insurance coverage or reimbursement. Your benefits are an agreement between you and your insurance company and you are responsible for what your insurance does not cover. For online therapy, most insurances cover online therapy, but some plans do not. You are responsible for verifying your benefits. If you have eligibility concerns or questions, contact your insurance provider directly.
If you are in financial need, please contact me to discuss sliding scale options so that you can still get mental wellness support if you're uninsured or experiencing economic hardship.
We accept payments via credit card and FSA/HSA.
A NOTE ON CONFIDENTIALITY:
While we are in-network with some insurances, please be aware that using health insurance carries some risk to confidentiality, privacy, or future eligibility to obtain health or life insurance.
Most insurance providers require a mental health diagnosis in order for therapy to be covered. Therefore, by utilizing your health insurance for billing purposes, we are required to give a mental health diagnosis and disclose personal health information about you even if the challenges you are going through are common, relational issues, stressors, or transitions that occur as individuals progress through natural life cycles. The information your insurance typically requests is limited to diagnoses and session dates, however, as a third party payer, they have a right to audit your records at any time which may include additional personal health information such as progress notes and treatment plans.
When you don’t use your insurance, this information remains private and ensures your 100% confidentiality.
