Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Our clinicians accept all Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance plans and Tufts Health Plan. We also accept ‘out-of-network’ referrals, meaning that the clinician is not in your network but can be seen for a higher copay, or a deductible payment, or both. We’re happy to work with you to understand what your insurance will or won’t cover.
When you first contact us, we’ll help you determine what type of coverage you have and who might fit your needs, should you choose to use your insurance. If you decide to contact your insurance plan beforehand, we recommend getting answers to the following questions:
- How many mental health sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is my “copayment” [meaning fee paid directly from the client to the clinician] each session?
- Do I have a “deductible” [meaning an annual fee that must be paid in full before copayments are applicable] and if so, what is it and how much of it has been met this year?
- Do I have “out of network” benefits [meaning that you can choose from virtually any provider even if not ‘in-network,’ though may pay a slightly higher rate to do so]?
Out of Pocket Fees
Our fee for the initial intake [up to two sessions] is $150 per 45-minute session.
Our fee for individual, family or couples sessions is $120 per 45-minute session.
Cash or check is accepted for payment.
48-Hour Cancellation Policy
We aim to build an atmosphere of mutual respect with our clients, and ask that if you need to cancel an appointment, you call with at least 48 hours’ notice. We understand that emergencies come up which may supersede that timeframe, such as medical emergencies or illness, childcare emergencies or weather conditions. If you cancel or do not attend the session with less than 48 hours’ notice other than in cases of emergency, we ask that you pay your clinician’s full fee of $120.
We prefer to speak with clients directly rather than schedule sessions online, to make sure we’re providing the highest level of assistance. Please contact us here for further information.
