Fees and Insurance

Fees and Insurance

One common question is whether or not psychotherapy is covered by health insurance.

Because I’m a licensed psychologist, my fees qualify for reimbursement under virtually all insurance plans.

And, my fees are generally considered within the “usual and customary” (UCR) range.

Patients pay me directly. If you decide to submit a claim for insurance reimbursement. I’ll gladly help you to make filing for reimbursement as clear and smooth as possible. The process might appear a little overwhelming at first, but I believe strongly in empowering patients in getting fair and accurate reimbursement from their insurance, and I’ll be glad to guide you through it.

Please be aware that using insurance may compromise your confidentiality. I recommend contacting your insurer for details about coverage and paperwork required.

I’ve written a guide to help you get the fairest and most accurate reimbursement from your insurance company — you can find it here: Insurance Reimbursement for Therapy.

Please feel free to contact me about questions or concerns you have about fees and insurance.
