Rates and Insurance
In Network Benefits
I am an in-network provider for the following insurance plans:
- Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield
- Emblem Health
- NYSHIP- The Empire Plan
- Beacon Health Options (formerly Value Options)
- Health First
- United Healthcare
Many insurance plans today have an “in-network” deductible, which must be met prior to the insurance paying a portion of outpatient counseling. Please be sure to call your insurance carrier to inquire about your specific coverage.
Out of Network Benefits
I am an out of network provider for most insurance companies that offer out of network benefits. Please check with your insurance company to inquire about your out of network benefits, deductibles, etc. I will be happy to assist you in applying for out of network reimbursement.
If you do not have insurance, I offer a self- pay rate. Please contact me to discuss my fees. Fees are due at time of service. Payment is accepted via cash, check, credit/debit card including Health Savings Account/Flexible Spending Account.
Scheduling an appointment is easy. I can be reached via phone, text or email to arrange an appointment.
I’d love to answer your questions about working together. Please contact me for your 15 minute complimentary phone consultation today!
In order to maintain continued quality of care and service, if a scheduled appointment needs to be rescheduled, please provide 24 hour notice before scheduled appointment time. Clients are charged a $50.00 late cancel fee for any session missed or not cancelled at least 24 hours in advance. These fees are typically not reimbursed by insurance. We can always do our best to schedule make-up sessions at convenient times.
Good Faith Estimate*
Under the Federal No Surprises Act (H.R. 133 – effective January 1, 2022), you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
Note: A Good Faith Estimate is for your awareness only. It does NOT involve you needing to make any type of commitment to the length or frequency of therapy sessions.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- The Good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You could be charged more if complications or special circumstances occur.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
