How to find an ADA & wheelchair accessible therapist
How much does therapy cost with an ADA & wheelchair accessible practitioner?
If your therapist accepts insurance, you'd only be responsible for the copay, which is usually $20 to $40 per visit. If you have a high-deductible plan, expect to pay $175 to $250+ per session until your insurance starts contributing. Similarly, if you’re paying out of pocket, therapy with an ADA & wheelchair accessible practitioner will cost anywhere from $175 to more than $250 per session.
You can also ask your therapist if they offer a sliding scale, or reduced fee, to clients with limited financial resources. In NYC, sliding scales can be as low as $100 per session.
Does health insurance cover ADA & wheelchair accessible therapy?
Due to privacy concerns, logistical challenges, and the low reimbursement rates that therapists receive, few ADA & wheelchair accessible therapists are in-network with health plans. However, there are some who accept payment from insurances such as Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Medicare and local university health plans.
You can see a therapist who isn’t paneled with your insurance, but your out-of-pocket costs will be higher as you’ll only receive partial reimbursement. For details about your out-of-network coverage, contact your plan or search your plan documents for your summary of benefits. The key terms are “out-of-network deductible” and “coinsurance.” Your deductible is the amount you’ll have to pay before your insurance starts contributing. Coinsurance is the amount that they will reimburse you,
Where are most ADA & wheelchair accessible therapists located?
Most NYC therapists who offer counseling from ADA & wheelchair accessible locations are based in Manhattan with the majority concentrated in Midtown, but there are many who practice on the Upper East and West Sides and in the Lower Manhattan neighborhoods of Greenwich Village, SoHo, and the Financial District.
There are also qualified therapists in Brooklyn and Queens.
How can I get to ADA & wheelchair accessible therapy appointments?
In NYC, the best way to get to therapy appointments is via subway. Though most NYC subway stations were built before the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), many have been equipped with elevators and AutoGate, an automatic entry/exit gate that makes it easier for riders with ambulatory disabilities to enter and exit the subway system.
For a complete list of accessible subway stations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, see the MTA Guide to Accessible Transit.
And while most ADA & wheelchair accessible therapists see clients in-person, some offer remote or online counseling as well. This option can be especially helpful to individuals who are housebound. Online therapy may also cost less than in-person therapy, which is important for those paying out of pocket.
When can I schedule ADA & wheelchair accessible therapy appointments?
You can schedule therapy appointments with ADA & wheelchair accessible practitioners at any time of day. Therapists see clients early in the morning before work or school, during the day – for example, for lunchtime appointments – and in the evenings after 5pm. Many therapists also see clients on the weekends.
