PAYMENT

To pay for counseling services, I accept all major credit cards as well as HSA/FSA cards. The only insurance I currently accept is Health Plan of San Joaquin - Medi-Cal. If you have out-of-network insurance benefits, you may request a "superbill" to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. I do not accept cash or check payments. All payments are to be made before each session. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns my payment policies raise.

Major Credit Cards

 

$135 per session

Each session length is approximately 60-minutes. Extended sessions for Relational or Family intensives are available upon request for an additional fee. Biopsychosocial assessments with diagnosis are available for $170.

HSA/FSA Cards

$135 per session

As a mental healthcare provider, I am allowed to accept Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flex Savings Accounts (FSA) through any insurance policy. This payment option will require a secondary form of payment on file for any disallowed charges.

HPSJ - Primary

I will need a valid Health Plan of San Joaquin card as well as appropriate identification to process this payment option. HPSJ currently covers 100% of mental healthcare costs. HPSJ must be your primary insurance policy.

Out-of-Network Reimbursement

Some insurance companies will reimburse you for out-of-pocket costs for out-of-network providers. Please ask your insurance representative if they support this. If so, I can provide you with monthly statements called "superbills" to submit for partial reimbursement. You will still pay the full amount for each of our sessions prior to receiving the superbill.  

GOOD-FAITH COST ESTIMATE

All uninsured or fee-for-service/cash-pay clients have the right to receive a “Good-Faith Estimate” explaining how much their medical and mental health care will likely cost. Under the law, all health care providers must give clients who don’t have insurance or who aren't using insurance an estimate of the expected out-of-pocket charges for health care services, including counseling services. For questions or more information about your right to a Good-Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.

 

Rights for All Uninsured or Fee-for-Service/Cash-Pay Clients:

  • You have the right to receive a Good-Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including counseling services. 

  • You have the right to ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good-Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. 

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good-Faith Estimate, you have the right to dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy of your Good-Faith Estimate for future reference.

  • You have the right to receive a Good-Faith Estimate upon scheduling, even if you did not request one from your provider.
