Paying for Therapy
Things you’ll need to know.
Now Accepting Highmark Blueshield of Central PA.
Please call or email to have your benefits verified prior to your first session. You will know your copay/coinsurance from the beginning.
Private pay therapy.
With increasingly higher deductibles, gaps in insurance coverage, and rigid “contractual obligations” with carriers, many therapists operate exclusively on a private pay model or accept only select health insurance plans. As I understand the impact that affordability may have on your decision to begin therapy, if you choose to pay out of pocket, you and I can develop an individualized treatment plan that can help you get the most out of the therapy you can afford.
It is possible that your insurance may reimburse you directly for services. If you have a plan that is not Highmark, I can provide you with the necessary documentation so that you can submit a claim for reimbursement.
Paying for therapy.
HSA, HRA, and Flex Spending – Your pre-tax Health Savings Account, Health Reimbursement Account, and most flex spending cards act just like a credit card. Many clients use these methods of payments because contributions to the account are tax-deductible or pre-tax if made through a payroll deduction. You may want to speak to your insurance carrier or benefits coordinator prior to your first session.
The cost of therapy.
Individual Sessions: $90 per 60 minute session.
Relationship Counseling: $100 per 60 minute session.
Highmark Blueshield clients: Your copay will be verified prior to you first session.
I accept HRA, HSA, and most flex spending cards. You may also use cash or most major credit cards as well. Credit cards are automatically charged the evening of your session.
