Fees and Insurance

Can I Use Insurance?

I accept Premera, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and First Choice Insurance.

For other plans, I can provide a statement that you can submit to your insurer for reimbursement. I do not bill insurance directly. Many insurance plans cover out-of-network services and you can find out by contacting them or by using the Reimbursify app.

I am registered with the Reimbursify app. This is a smartphone app that simplifies reimbursement requests. You can download it from either the Apple or Google/Android app stores. After you enter your insurance information into Reimbursify, it can tell you how your plan may cover my services.

Fee Scale

If you are not covered by insurance, these are my discounted rates for cash pay clients:

Couple’s Session: $125 per 50 minutes.

Individual Session: $100 per 50 minutes.

I accept cash, check, credit card, and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). Payment is due at the end of each session.

What About Sliding Scale?

If finances are tight for you, I offer sliding scale rates for up to five clients on my case load. Sliding scale rates range from $80 to $125 per couple’s session, and $60 to $90 per individual session. These reduced rates are available on request and you set your own rate based on your own assessment of your ability to pay within the ranges mentioned above.

24 hour Notice for Cancellation

I serve many clients and must respect their needs as well as yours. To help achieve this I ask you to accept responsibility for arriving on time and notifying me at least 24 hours in advance if you cannot attend. If you fail to provide this notice, I can charge you the full fee for the session, even if you did not attend or missed part of it. However, I understand that illness and urgent life problems may prevent you from giving sufficient notice and will make exceptions in such cases.

Confidentiality

Except in certain specific circumstances, I will not tell anyone your identity, or identifying information, or what was shared in a session without prior written permission. When a session involves more than one adult client, each client must provide written consent before I can disclose information to a third party.

The most important exception to the rule of confidentiality may occur when I have reason to believe a client may harm themselves or others.

In addition, to better serve you, I may consult a supervisor or fellow professional about your case. When doing so, I protect your identity by using pseudonyms, withholding identifying information, and only sharing information relevant to a psychological consultation. My supervisor and colleagues are also bound by practices of confidentiality.

A more detailed explanation of exceptions is available in the therapy agreement we sign before our first session, or on request.
