This provider can support you in getting reimbursement from your insurance company if you are seeking out-of-network reimbursement. Here are the out-of-network billing options they provide:
Frequency of sessions this provider offers to see clients once you are an established client.
Due to the economic uncertainty associated with the events of Covid-19, I charge $80 per 50-minute session, which is below the standard market rate for private-pay therapy, counseling, and coaching.
Currently, I am not on any insurance panels. Following an initial consultation and session, I am glad to submit a "Super Bill" for clients to file directly with their insurance provider as an Out-Of-Network reimbursement.
I also have a limited number of sliding scale clients, all of which are currently booked, although I am glad to discuss wait listing or referring those in need of sliding scale support.
