DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
I accept Partnership Health Plan (Sometimes called "Carelon", or "Medi-cal"), Aetna, and Anthem (Blue Cross Blue Shield).
Although I am not an “in-network” provider for other health insurances, I offer out-of-network services. Although I am an out-of-network provider, I do offer courtesy billing.
Dealing with, and understanding, insurance can be complex and overwhelming. If you will be using your health insurance benefits, please bring this up to me before our first session so that I can make sure we both have all the information we need.
WHAT IS COURTESY BILLING?
With courtesy billing, the full session fee will still be paid by you at the time of services. After our counseling appointment, I submit insurance claims for you to your insurance company, and they send reimbursement directly to you. By offering courtesy billing, clients do not have to worry about the burden of filing claims and dealing with insurance companies.
I can also provide you with an invoice, also known as a “Super Bill'' at the end of each month that you can submit yourself to your health insurance company for reimbursement.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
My rates are as follows:
$125 per individual counseling session
$150 per relational counseling session
DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?
I offer sliding scale appointments to people who are not able to access services at my usual rates. Sliding scale appointments are time-limited to 12 sessions, and a fee will be agreed upon prior to our first appointment. Please let me know if you would like to discuss my sliding scale rates.
