I am an in-network provider for the following insurance companies:
- Ambetter (NOT Medicaid)
- Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Community Health Alliance (CHA) Network
- Michiana Behavioral Health Network/New Avenues
- Optum VA CCN (Veterans)
- Physicians Health Plan (PHP)
I do NOT accept Medicaid, HIP or Medicare.
I will bill your insurance company, responsible party or third party payer for you if you wish. I ask that at each session you pay your co-pay or 50% of the fee. In the event you have not met your deductible, the full fee is due at each session until the deductible is satisfied. If your insurance company denies payment or does not cover counseling, I request that you pay the balance due at that time.
For insurance clients, your first (intake) 60-minute session charge is $140. After intake, I generally offer clients 60 minute sessions (CPT code 90837), for which I charge $120. If your insurance does not reimburse for 60-minute sessions, I will offer 45 minute sessions (CPT code 90834) at $110. If your insurance company covers couples or family counseling, I will bill those sessions appropriately and at the same rates as individual therapy. Group sessions, when offered, will be billed at $50 per meeting.
If you do not have or are not using insurance, I offer self-pay sessions at $95 for a 55-60 minute session. Although I do not offer a sliding scale, I keep a limited number of slots in my schedule for low-income clients. If I have a slot available, you and I will negotiate a fee.
General Information/Cancellation Policy
I accept cash, checks and major credit cards (using Square).
If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please give 24 business hours advance notice, or you may be billed at the full session fee. I have found this policy necessary because I have a time allotted for you, which cannot be filled by another client on late notice. Please note that insurance companies will not reimburse for late cancellation or “no show” appointment charges.
For existing clients, I offer a secure online scheduling program through my practice software which allows clients to make or change appointments 24 hours or more in advance. To schedule an initial session, please call 574-214-4912.
