Our fee is $150 for a 50 min. Session.
We currently accept Carefirst -Blue Cross Blue Shield (PPO and HMO).
Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.
Please note that most insurance companies do not cover marriage or couples counseling. Marriage or couples counseling is not considered a medical necessity (it is not treated as a physical illness), as the treatment is focused on the relationship and not a mental health diagnosis. See our FAQ or call us at 240-489-1108 for more information.
I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
- Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
- Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
- Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
- Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
Out of Network Benefits
You may also be able to use your out of network coverage. I am a Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist, many of the insurance companies accept my license for therapy services. I can provide you with a receipt (Superbill) that will allow you to seek reimbursement from your insurance.
Please keep in mind that there are risks and benefits when using your health insurance benefits for therapy. When filing claims through insurance, clinicians are required to give you a DSM diagnosis. Therefore, your privacy is less protected, which may be unfavorable to your specific situation. Please contact me if you need additional information.
I accept Cash, check, all major credit cards, and HSA cards.
A reduced rate may be available for individuals, couples, and families who have financial difficulties or lack of insurance. For Additional Infomation follow the link to OpenPath and look for my name.
To avoid missed appointments, canceling or rescheduling must be done at least 24 hours before the appointments in question to avoid being charged for the appointment.
