Rates & Insurance
Therapy generally starts with an intake where we will have our Intake Coordinator meet with you and fill out the initial paperwork. During intake, you will learn pertinent information about insurance, policies, and your rights as a client of our practice. At this appointment, your first appointment will also be scheduled with your therapist. This appointment is considered a consultation and will happen free of charge in order to ensure goodness of fit between you and our practice.
During your first appointment with your therapist, they will complete a Comprehensive Clinical Assessment and ask a wide range of questions. The goal of the first session is to get an idea of who you are and how your therapist can best help you. It is also the beginning of putting together the course of your treatment. The fee for this intake is $150.00.
On-going Therapy And Fee Information:
After the assessment, individual therapy sessions are typically 60 minutes and $120.00 (couple’s therapy sessions are also typically 60 minutes and $120.00). Group sessions are 90 minutes long and $60.00 (if you are getting comprehensive DBT through our practice, there will be a reduced group rate). Agreements about payment amount and method are discussed prior to our first session and then discussed more fully during intake, so please contact us if you have a need.
We operate on a “fee-for-service” model, meaning clients will be asked to pay at the beginning of each session. An invoice will then be provided for your records.
We no longer accept Medicaid, but we have a limited number of scholarship spots for folks who are eligible for Medicaid, Medicare, or who are uninsured.
We are also a provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield, which means that we will bill them directly for payment. Please be aware of what your deductible and co-pay are for your individual plan.
We do not participate on any other managed care insurance panels. With only a few exceptions, however, we can file health insurances as an “out-of-network provider”. Since payment is due at the time of service, we will request that the insurance company reimburse the client directly. In North Carolina, insurance companies are required to reimburse you within a set number of days. Please check with your insurance company prior to scheduling. Ask your insurance company about their “out-of-network coverage,” yearly deductible, percentage they will reimburse, and whether a prior authorization is needed.
MISSED SESSIONS AND CANCELLATIONS
In order to both organize our practice and guarantee clients regular times, we schedule a single weekly (or biweekly) time slot for a client. Missed sessions are not billable to insurance and will be billed directly to the client if the proper cancellation procedures are not followed. A charge of the full session is applied when appointments are missed or cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. Missed session or late cancel fees can be waived for emergencies only.
