Fees and Insurance

Fees and Insurance

A common question: “Is psychotherapy is covered by health insurance?”

Because I’m a licensed psychologist, my fees qualify for reimbursement under nearly 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 the process as clear and smooth as possible.

(A little reassurance: my patients have often said that the process of getting reimbursed is not nearly as complicated nor as difficult as it initially sounded — plus, you’ll have me in your corner.)

Please be aware that using insurance may compromise your confidentiality and privacy, which I take very seriously.

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.
