Rates and Insurance
Maintaining client confidentiality and treatment integrity is important to me. Clients frequently choose to pay out-of-pocket, as insurance companies require that I assign a diagnosis in order to receive coverage. I do not believe that every person who might benefit from counseling has a diagnosable illness. Out-of-pocket payment also allows for us to decide together the type of service and time frame that best suits your needs, rather than the insurance company making those decisions.
Should you decide that you wish to use insurance, I am affiliated with the following providers:
ACI Specialty EAP Benefits
Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield
CareSource: Marketplace, only
Chestnut Global Partners International (CGP)
IMPACT EAP & Work/Life Program
Mutual of Omaha EAP
OSU Healthplan (Faculty, Staff, and Students)
Workplace Options EAP
Initial session fee: $180 (individual); and $225 (conjoint*).
Ongoing sessions: $130 (individual) ; $175 (conjoint).
Sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes; 90 minute appointments are scheduled upon request.
*I accept out-of-pocket payments, only, for conjoint sessions.
Student rates are available for those who qualify and currently enrolled in an educational program.
All out-of-pocket payments (i.e., deductible, copay, coinsurance) are due at the time of service. Cash, check, or CashApp are preferred, as credit cards are assessed an additional 4% service fee. Checks returned for Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) are subject to a $30 service fee plus an $8 bank fee. If your account goes to collections after 90 days of non-payment, all applicable fees will be added to your balance.
My cancellation policy requires that you give 24-hours notice of cancellation. Missed appointments are billed at the full service/session fee; no exceptions.
Note: Unfortunately, I am unable to submit insurance claims for missed appointments.
