For the first session, you will be asked to complete client forms. We will then review you reasons for seeking counseling and discuss treatment goals.
I am in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO, Blue Cross Blue Shield HMO Northwestern Medical Group, Aetna PPO, and United Health Care. I am also able to accept out of network insurance plans. I would be happy to verify your insurance benefits for you before your first appointment.
The self pay rate for counseling sessions is $185 for an initial evaluation and $155 for sessions after that.
*Please see below for information on Good Faith Estimate
Each counseling session is 53 minutes long. The number of counseling sessions needed varies from person to person and will depend on your individual needs and goals.
Counseling is strictly confidential. There are a few instances where confidentiality is limited and these are: Danger to self or others, child or dependent adult abuse, and court ordered subpoena.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers must provide clients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service. You can also ask your health care provider for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. This Good Faith Estimate is only an estimate which may be subject to change and may not reflect the overall total charges. There may be additional items or services not contained in this Good Faith Estimate to be recommended by your convening provider as part of your course of care. If new or additional services are recommended for a future date, you will be provided with an updated Good Faith Estimate prior to that upcoming service. If service(s) is/are recurring, then the estimated costs included on the Good Faith Estimate are valid for 12 months from the date of the Good Faith Estimate, unless we provide you with an updated Estimate. This Good Faith Estimate is not a contract, and you are not obligated to obtain the items and/or services mentioned on the estimate, you may decline at any time if you so choose. If the actual amount billed exceeds the expected charges included in this Good Faith Estimate by $400 or more, it is your individual right to initiate the client-provider dispute resolution process. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-985-3059.
