Fees & Insurance

Fees

The fee structure for my services is as follows:

Individual Counseling — $125 per session

Couples Counseling — $135 per session

Initial Diagnostic Evaluation  —  $150 per session

Paperwork & Documentation Requests — No charge for first 15 minutes. $25 per 15 minute increment thereafter.

Sessions are 50-53 minutes unless otherwise discussed. Occasionally, some insurance plans may only allow for a 45 minute session. You will be informed if this is the case. If my fee creates a hardship for you, please discuss this with me. I reserve a limited amount of reduced-fee spots for those underemployed, unemployed, or students. Payment arrangements must be agreed upon prior to the start of treatment.

I am not accepting new patients until September 2018.

 

Insurance & EAP’s

For your convenience, I will file claims directly to insurance plans when I am an in-network provider. Currently, I am an in-network provider for:

  1. First Choice Health Network
  2. Kaiser Permanente (formerly Group Health) – Access PPO and Options PPO
  3. Regence Blue Shield/Uniform Medical Plan

Prior to start of treatment, I will verify that your insurance policy covers outpatient mental health/counseling services.  In some cases, a pre-authorization may be required before services can be provided. I will inform you of any co-pays or deductibles you may have.

For other insurance plans, I am considered an out-of-network provider. I require my full-fee payment at the time of the session and as a courtesy, I will submit your claim to your insurance company for reimbursement, if out-of-network reimbursement is allowed.

In addition to insurance, I am also a contracted provider for the following two EAP (Employee Assistance Program) plans:

  1. WA State Employees EAP
  2. Wellspring Family Services EAP

Please contact your respective EAP about getting a referral for counseling services.

 

Payment

Cash, checks, and major credit cards (VISA and MasterCard) are accepted. Payment is due at the end of the session.

 

Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel your appointment, please call or email me within 48 hours of your appointment. If you do not cancel within 48 hours, then you will be responsible for the full cost of the missed appointment. Insurance companies do not reimburse for missed appointments.
