Our clinicians are in network with some insurance providers. If we are in network with your provider, we will process your billing for you, and your out of pocket cost will be determined by your insurance plan. During your initial consultation, please discuss with your clinician if you would like to use insurance.
If your clinician is out of network with your insurance provider, you will be expected to pay fees at the time that services are rendered. Your cinician will provide you with an invoice to submit to your insurane carrier so that you can be reimbursed at the rate determined by your carrier. Depending upon your insurance plan, we may be abel to submit your claims for you to your insurance carrier as a convenience for you, even if we are not in network. In this case, you are still responsible for any portion not reimbursed by your insurance carrier. Your clinician can identify if we are able to do this for you.
Many insurance carriers who previously did not reimburse for telehealth are now doing so in Illinois due to Covid-19, and many insurance providers are waiving client copays and coinsurance. However, your specific plan may or may not include coverage for telehealth. Check with your insurance carrier to confirm whether your specific plan includes telehealth coverage and to what extent.
Individual, couple, and family sessions are typically 55 minutes in length, although some family sessions may require additional time. We regularly maintain limited client space for reduced fee/sliding scale services based upon finanacial need, and we offer a reduced rate for students, including graduate students in psychology or related fields. Fees for psychotherapy sessions include phone consultation as needed with psychiatrists, primary care physicians, pediatricians, or other providers to coordinate care. If we are in network with your insruance carrier, then we have agreed to a reduced rate that is determined by them. Generally, our self pay rates are: 55 minute individual/couple/family - $175, 45 minute individual/couple/family - $150, student rate - $75. Please speak with your clinician if you have questions regarding service fees or insurance.
