Insurance and Fees

Are your services covered by insurance?

Yes, most of our team accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicaid, Medicare, and we will soon be accepting Tricare. We are out-of-network providers for most other insurance companies. Before you decide to use insurance, it’s important to know the details to make an informed decision about using health insurance to pay for psychotherapy or testing and understand the privacy issues.*

Our entire team is authorized out-of-network providers, which means you are likely to be reimbursed for most of our services. As a courtesy, we will be glad to file your insurance claims for you. If you have out-of-network benefits, your insurance company will mail your reimbursement checks directly to you. We encourage you to research details about your mental health coverage with your insurance company before scheduling your first appointment, including questions such as:

  • Do I have out of network mental health benefits?
  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what’s the amount?
  • Are any diagnoses excluded?
  • Does my insurance cover psychological testing?
  • Is authorization required?
  • How many visits per year are covered?
  • Which services are covered (e.g., group therapy, eTherapy or phone sessions)?

What are your fees?

The initial Psychiatric Diagnostic Evaluation fee ranges from $155-$185 and therapy fees range from $55-$165 per session. Fee ranges depend upon type of session (e.g., group vs. individual), the therapist’s license (e.g., Masters vs. Doctorate) and years of experience. Fees for other services including neurofeedback, psychological testing and psycho-educational assessments vary depending on the client’s needs. We also offer a limited number of slots for those with Medicaid, Medicare, and Military / Tricare Insurance. For specific information regarding fees, please refer to the “Fee Agreement”.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We request payment for services rendered at the time of each session. Our practice accepts PayPal, checks payable to “Psychological Mobile Services, P.A.” as well as major credit cards, including Master Card, Visa, American Express, and Discover.

How long does the therapy process last?

The length of treatment depends on several factors, including how much time and energy you can invest in treatment between sessions, how long the pattern has been in place, and the type of goals you would like to accomplish. Some of our clients come to counseling for only a few sessions for a parent consultation or relationship tune up. Others benefit from weekly sessions for several months or longer in order to learn new skills while receiving ongoing support and coaching. During your initial consultation, we encourage you to discuss your goals with your therapist and ask for a treatment plan.

*Your privacy is compromised when using insurance.

When you use your health insurance, your therapist must justify your need for therapy to your insurance company, which typically requires the therapist to provide your mental health diagnosis and sensitive personal information about your therapy. This information will go into health insurance files that can be accessed by numerous people. This is an ongoing process, often requiring justification every few sessions.

This is also a consideration if you think you may want to be self-employed in the future. Past mental health diagnosis and treatment records may be treated as a pre-existing condition, which will make private insurance more difficult and expensive.

Also, more and more skilled, qualified mental health physicians and therapists are choosing NOT to participate on managed care health insurance network. The reimbursement rates are low, the paperwork is time-consuming, and the coverage is limited and tightly managed making involvement of the insurance company difficult. This trend may impact your ability to get the best care. If you are concerned about whether or not you can afford therapy without insurance, contact us and inquire about our limited low cost service options.

Insurance Plans 101

With PPO or POS Plans

You can choose a therapist from the “Preferred Provider” or in-network list of your health insurance company or you can choose an out-of-network therapist. The reimbursement rate will be higher if you choose from those preferred by the insurance and will be lower if you choose an out-of-network provider. PPO plans tend to reimburse based usual & customary fees, but the insurance plan determines what fee is “usual & customary” and generally not representative of actual psychotherapy fees.

With HMO Plans

You are required to choose a provider who is on your insurance network. Since most skilled, successful therapists don’t take insurance or limit their participation, finding an effective one for you may require some effort on your part. Be sure to check how many sessions are covered by your plan and at what co-pay to make sure that using your insurance feels right to you; weigh the actual financial benefit against the downsides of compromising your privacy, a coverage that may not meet your treatment needs, and restricting your choice of providers.
