Insurance and Fees
I am an in-network provider with the NC State Health Plan administered by BCBS and most BCBS commercial and PPO plans. This does not include Blue Value and Blue Home plans. Copays, Coinsurance, and Deductibles are due at time of service with a credit card on file. Billing through your health insurance does require a medical diagnosis.
If you are not covered by one of the BCBS plans listed above, I am happy to provide a monthly "Superbill" that you can file for Out-of-Network benefits with your insurance company if you have these benefits available. I suggest contacting your insurance company to inquire about out-of-network benefits for mental health care.
Out of pocket fees vary based on length of session and type of therapy (individual, couples, family). I strive to keep my fees accessible. The current rate for a 55 minute individual session or parent consultation is $145. Premarital counseling sessions are 60 minute sessions billed at $150. Intake sessions which require diagnosis and assessment are billed at a higher rate. Fees are due at the time of service with a credit card on file. I have a limited number of sliding scale spots available.
*Cancellation policy: In the case of late cancellations (less than 24 hours notice), you will be charged a $50 fee. You will be charged for the full session if a session is canceled after the session's scheduled start time or missed. Exceptions may be made in the case of illnesses and emergencies after discussion. Insurance policies do not reimburse for missed or canceled sessions.
Good Faith Estimate of Charges
As required by the ‘No Surprises Act’ of 2020, all mental health providers are required to ask about client’s insurance coverage (including whether clients intend to submit claims to their insurance company) and to provide a ‘Good Faith Estimate for Heath Care Items and Services’ to all self-pay or uninsured clients when care is scheduled, or when requested by the client. I can provide this estimate to all self-pay and uninsured clients at the beginning of treatment and annually thereafter upon request. A Good Faith Estimate is not necessary at this time for clients who are planning to use their insurance benefits to cover their services, but all clients have a right to request a Good Faith Estimate at any time. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your ‘Good Faith Estimate’, you can dispute the bill.
