Do You Take Insurance?
All health insurance policies are not the same. The amount of reimbursement you receive depends on the type and amount of coverage your policy provides. I currently accept Cigna and Medicare. If you have any other type of insurance, feel free to consult with me about how you can utilize your policy's out of network benefits to defray the cost of treatment.
Prior to your first visit, call your insurance company to find out what your benefits are for psychotherapy (often referred to as "Mental Health" or "Behavioral Health"). You may do this by calling the customer service phone number listed on your insurance card.
When using your insurance for mental health services, please consider that in order to make an insurance claim, your treatment must be considered medically necessary. This means you will be given a diagnosis, and your sessions must be directed toward the treatment of that diagnosis.
Insurance Plans I Accept:
All others: Out of Network
What are Your Rates?
My standard counseling rate is $100 per traditional 60-minute session. (Additional time is available in 15-minute increments at $25 each.)
Your financial responsibility may be considerably less depending upon your insurance policy.
You also have the option of meeting with a Registered Social Work Intern for a significantly reduced fee. (Intern services are not covered by health insurance.) Each intern has completed a graduate program in Social Work and is registered with the state of Florida for the purpose of pursuing full licensure. For more information, please visit each intern's webpage under the "Interns" tab above.
Can I use my health insurance to pay for RRT?
Yes, however, since health insurance companies typically bill by the hour, and since health insurance will not pay for more than one hour per day, your RRT treatments will be broken up into several sessions. This means your RRT experience will likely take longer than the estimated 1-3 sessions to resolve your issue. Even if it takes 10 sessions, this is still far more rapid than having to go to traditional therapy for several years.
