Private pay patients pay fees directly to me without using insurance. This is ideal for those who prefer for their insurance companies to not have access to their mental health information or who do not have mental health insurance coverage.
My normal individual therapy rate is $250 per 50-minute session.
I have a limited number of hours available for sliding scale patients who need a lower rate due to financial concerns. These appointments are generally provided in non-evening hours. The lowest fee of the sliding-scale arrangement is $200.
For couples therapy sessions, the normal rate is $300 per 50-minute session, with sliding-scale availability starting at $250.
If requested, I will provide you with a "super bill" that contains all of the information needed for your insurance to reimburse you for the portion of your therapy that they may cover. Make sure to ask your insurance company about what deductibles you may have, how much they cover toward the cost of therapy, and if there are any limitations on the number of therapy sessions they cover.
My credentialing information can be provided to your insurance company. Contact me for my NYS License Number, NPI Number, and EIN Number.
The CPT code (or "procedure code") for individual psychotherapy I will provide is usually either 90834 or 90837.
