Benefits from Paying Out-of Pocket for Therapy
Although utilizing your insurance benefits is cost-effective, also consider that insurance companies generally require a counselor to assign a diagnosis to you in order to justify paying for counseling sessions. Your level of confidentiality is, to a degree compromised. Your information is filtered through the system that processes your claim; all those involved in that process have access to the mental health diagnosis your counselor assigned to your claim. Thus, your diagnosis and the supporting evidence for that diagnosis becomes a part of your health record. Paying for your sessions out of your own funds may be a choice that your prefer if you have concerns about your confidentiality.
Cash, check and all major credit cards are accepted for payment.
* Counseling services are also allotted under your Federal Savings Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA)
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be charged a fee of $75.00.

"Good Faith Estimate"
This Good Faith Estimate shows the costs of items and services that are reasonably expected for your health care needs for an item or service. The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created.
The Good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You could be charged more if complications or special circumstances occur. If this happens, federal law allows you to dispute (appeal) the bill.
If you are billed for more than this Good Faith Estimate, you have the right to dispute the bill.
You may contact the health care provider or facility listed to let them know the billed charges are higher than the Good Faith Estimate. You can ask them to update the bill to match the Good Faith Estimate, ask to negotiate the bill, or ask if there is financial assistance available.
You may also start a dispute resolution process with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). If you choose to use the dispute resolution process, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days (about 4 months) of the date on the original bill.
There is a $25 fee to use the dispute process. If the agency reviewing your dispute agrees with you, you will have to pay the price on this Good Faith Estimate. If the agency disagrees with you and agrees with the health care provider or facility, you will have to pay the higher amount.
