INSURANCE: If you have insurance that includes Mental Health Benefits, the initial intake session and/or yearly intake will be billed at $200 and each session thereafter will be billed at $150. You will be responsible for the remaining amount not covered under your Mental Health Benefits. The insurance benefits quoted by your insurance company and/or FCC are not a guarantee of payment. Please note that benefits can change periodically and may affect the amount that your insurance company will pay. The final confirmation of your benefits and copay will appear on the Explanation of Benefits you receive from the insurance company.
SLIDING SCALE: For clients who do not have insurance or choose not to bill services through insurance may be offered a sliding scale fee based on the client's annual household income. An additional $20 will be billed for the initial session and yearly intake. Proof of income must be provided to determine and set the session fee (i.e. a current tax return or the three most recent pay stubs). Clients should report any changes to income and provide supporting documentation. Clients must provide their proof of income via mail, email, fax, or in person before or at their first appointment. If proof of income is not received by the first appointment, clients will be charged an $80 fee for the initial session. Clients will not be able to reschedule until proof of income is provided.
