My usual and customary rate is $130 per 50 minute session. I may be able to lower my rate for financial need.
If you are on Medi-Cal and your health insurance plan is Partnership (NOT KAISER PARTNERSHIP), you may qualify for Medi-Cal to pay completely for services. Partnership is the health plan for people on Medi-Cal in the following counties: Sonoma, Napa, Lake, Mendocino, Solano, Yolo, Marin, Del Norte, Humboldt, Lassen, Modoc, Shasta, Siskiyou, and Trinity. You may call me directly and I can check your eligibility or you can call Beacon Health Strategies (who manages this benefit on behalf of Partnership) at 1-855-765-9703.
Medi-Care and Medi-Cal/Medi-Care
I am also a Medi-Care provider. I no longer take clients who are on BOTH Medicare and Medi-Cal.
I am currently not on any insurance provider panels. However, many insurance plans will reimburse you for seeing an out-of-network provider, although not as much as if you saw an in-network provider. This is one reason I keep my rates lower than other therapists with my experience level.
To determine if you have mental health coverage through your insurance carrier, the first thing you should do is call them. Check your coverage carefully and make sure you understand their answers. Some helpful questions you can ask them:
- What are my mental health benefits?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
- How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
- How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
- Is approval required from my primary care physician?
I will gladly supply you with a form to submit for reimbursement from your company. Please be aware that using your insurance requires giving you an accurate mental health diagnosis. If you are concerned about this, we can discuss this issue. You can read more about insurance coverage in my Policies form available on this site.
I accept cash, check and all major credit cards as forms of payment. I also accept payment via PayPal and you can pay directly on my site on this page.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.
