Rates & Insurance
PLEASE NOTE: As of JUNE 1, 2021, Relief
will no longer accept any insurance for services
My fee is $150 per 50 minute session.
Why don't you take my insurance, man?
Without getting too far in to the state of the insurance industry and mental healthcare today, the simplest explanation is:
I prefer to work for my clients and not their insurance companies.
By accepting your insurance, I am agreeing to:
Share session information, potentially including (but not limited) to notes and treatment details with third parties
Work extra hours dealing with the insurance company to get paid within a system that is clearly designed to delay or avoid payment
Take a cut rate that requires me to take on more clients than is clinically prudent in order to make my business viable.
Can you help me use my out-of-network benefits?
Yes, I certainly can.
Many insurance plans offer reimbursement for the cost of therapy provided by licensed counselors who are not "in-network" with your plan. Check with your plan's out-of-network benefits for reimbursement eligibility, reimbursement percentages and deductibles.
How that works:
I collect your payment at the start of our session, and provide a 'superbill'-- documentation containing all of the information your insurance company needs to use your benefits if you have them.
How is this a better arrangement?
Therapy is an investment of time and money in you and your well being. The individualized treatment I offer is high quality, and not participating in managed care networks is one of the many things I do maintain that quality and help you best.
