We run our entire practice as a self-pay practice. This means that we do not accept payment for services from health insurance companies. When you work with us, you will pay us directly for the services you receive.
Each clinician in our practice sets their own fee, and you should call us directly for that information. We offer reduced fees on a case by case basis, and the best way to determine if our fees work for you is to call us or discuss this during your first appointment.
We know that money is an important issue to you, and we have chosen this model for a number of reasons. The benefits you receive by paying directly for your health care are:
You will preserve complete privacy and your treatment will not become part of your permanent health record.
Most insurance companies will only pay for a portion of the cost for a limited number of sessions, you still have costs with most insurance plans (co-pays or meeting deductibles).
Insurance companies require a diagnosis to file claims. This means that to participate with insurance payments, a clinician must assign a psychiatric diagnostic label to you. With self pay, you would receive a psychiatric diagnosis only when it is relevant to your treatment.
There are no hidden costs or unexpected medical bills. You know exactly what your healthcare costs upfront.
You have complete control over the course of your treatment; you and your clinician get to decide together when you come, and how many sessions you will need.
