BILLING INFORMATION

My time of service (cash) fee for an initial intake session is $135 and for ongoing sessions is $110 for 55 minutes. Charges vary when billing insurance companies directly.  I accept cash, check and/or credit. Payment is due at the beginning of each session. Checks returned NSF will be charged a $25 fee.

I allow a 24 hour cancellation/ reschedule and will do my best to fit clients into another available appointment time, however, the full fee will be charged for missed appointments without 24 hour notification.

Ask about an "economic hardship waiver" if fees are an obstacle to engaging in the counseling process.

INSURANCE

I am currently able to accept Regence, First Choice, United HealthCare/ Optum Behavioral Health, and Kaiser Permanente.  I'm also able to accept First Choice EAP and Wellsprings EAP if your employer offers an Employee Assistance Program.  Clients with a different insurance coverage may receive a receipt to submit to their insurance company for reimbursement if your coverage allows for OUT OF NETWORK services.  Every insurance company is different and allows different coverage.  It is best if you call your insurance directly to verify coverage amounts. Use the following form and ask them the questions pertaining to Mental Health benefits "In Network" with the companies above, and "Out of Network" with those not listed.

Insurance Verification Worksheet

NOTE: If you do not have insurance, or if your insurance does not have mental health coverage, please contact me to discuss a sliding scale or "economic hardship waiver".  While costs may seem prohibitive to getting care, your health is money well-invested.
