How Much Does A Session Cost?
Privately paying offers some benefits, such as that an insurance company or other entity is less likely to obtain access to any information about you. I charge the average rate, which is $175.00 for an initial intake assessment session, $125 per session thereafter for individuals, or $135 per session hour for couples.
I am empaneled with most insurance companies and with a number of Employee Assistance programs. Thus, what you will pay depends upon your situation. EAPs often pay for a very limited number of sessions, 1-6 typically, and there is no out of pocket cost to the client. If you use your health insurance, you may pay about $15.00 up to about $40.00 copayment for each session.
A few insurances do not have copays at all. You can find out how yours works by calling the number on the back of you insurance card under “Mental Health Benefits”, or under “Customer Care”.Your health insurance company’s website may also explain your benefits to you.
