Fees & Policies
Therapy is an investment. While my practice does not accept insurance directly, your insurance company may consider us “out-of-network providers”. Many of our clients have been able to seek "out-of-network" reimbursement using the electronic superbills we provide on a monthly basis.
understand your Out-of-Network Mental Health Benefits
The first step is to contact the Member Services phone number on the back of your health insurance card. Ask your insurance representative the following questions to understand your coverage and out-of-pocket costs.
Does my insurance plan cover out-of-network mental health services (procedure code 90834) with an LCSW?
What is the covered amount per therapy session?
Do I have an out-of-network deductible, and if so, have I met it?
What are the specific steps I need to take to be reimbursed for out-of-network psychotherapy services?
Is there a limit to the number of mental health visits I can have each year? If so, how many visits are allowed?
Do I need a referral from my primary care physician for my services to be covered?
In an effort to make treatment accessible to a diverse socioeconomic range of individuals and families we offer moderate-fee treatment. If out-of-network treatment is financially prohibitive, do get in touch so we can help you with a low-fee or in-network referral.
Scheduled appointment times are reserved especially for you. We ask that you notify us with 48-business hours (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm) in advance of any absence to avoid the full-session charge. If we are able to reschedule your appointment within the same week you will not be billed the full session fee.
TELEPHONE, TEXT, EMAIL & EMERGENCIES
We return phone calls and email within 24-48 business hours (Monday-Friday 9am-5pm).
Texting is welcome for scheduling on weekdays only.
In case of emergencies, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. If you are not in immediate danger but need to speak to someone urgently, please contact the Samaritans NYC 24-hour crisis hotline at 212-673-3000.
