Billing & fees
Initial consultations are $275 for one hour.
Psychotherapy sessions are 50 minutes and $250. Medications, if any, are discussed in the same session (i.e., no separate medication consultation visit or charge). Sometimes the fee can be adjusted in cases of financial hardship, for example if therapy is regularly scheduled more often than once a week.
Medication-only visits are $130 for about 20 minutes. Due to my special interest in psychotherapy, I am usually unavailable for new patients seeking medication-only treatment.
Detailed written evaluations are available for an additional fee.
Please provide at least 24 hours notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment. You will be charged for same-day cancellations or failure to show for your appointment.
I am not on managed-care insurance panels and do not bill insurance companies, other than Medicare for some of my existing patients. I am not currently open for new Medicare patients. Please pay in full at the time of service. Established patients can also arrange payment through bill-pay services offered by banks and similar financial institutions.
I recently set up Square to process Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express payments, as well as the usual checks or cash.
Patients receive monthly itemized statements ("super bills") suitable for insurance reimbursement, and I will supply additional paperwork or documentation to assist you in working with your health plan. However, you are financially responsible for all services provided.
