Fees and Payment
Therapy Fees: The fee for therapy is $170.00 per fifty minute session. The fee for an intake interview is $200.00 for the ninety minute meeting.
School meetings: The fee for participation in school meetings is $200 per hour, including travel and preparation time, and is billed in quarter hour increments.
Assessment Fees: The fee for Neuropsychological assessment is $3700. In the case that a complete assessment is not necessary, this fee may be reduced accordingly. The fee includes the intake meeting, two assessment dates (one full day and one additional more brief meeting), feedback meeting for parents, feedback meeting for child/teen, and comprehensive written report. Participation in school meetings is billed at the school meeting rate of $200/hour.
Health Insurance Plans: Many health insurance plans, particularly those designated as PPO plans, will reimburse you for expenses you incur when you pay for assessments or therapy. I will provide you with a receipt for payment, which will include the information necessary to request reimbursement from your health insurance company. I urge you to contact your health insurance company, using the phone number on the back of your insurance card, to determine the eligibility, requirements, and limits for reimbursement. I will assist you by enrolling with your insurance company as an out-of-network provider (if they require this), as well as by providing you with a detailed receipt. I cannot, because of time limitations, bill insurance companies directly, but will instead ask that you pay for services and request reimbursement from them.
If you do not have Out of Network benefits, you may be able to attain authorization for Out of Network coverage from your insurance provider. The MPA has information on their website that is can be helpful in this process: MPA: Getting Mental Health Coverage for Out of Network Providers
Payment options: Personal checks, cash and credit cards are all accepted for payment. Fees for therapy sessions and school meetings are due at the time of the therapy session. Fees for assessments are due in two equal payments, one on the date of the assessment, and one on the date of the feedback meeting.
