Fees and Payment/Cancellation Policy
All live session services (counseling and psycho-educational programs) are $75 for a 50-60 minute session and are billed at the time of the session. Sliding scale fees may be requested by those with financial concerns and are determined on a case by case basis. All services are currently self-pay and there is no coordination with insurance. This may create increased financial cost for some clients however it allows for greater confidentiality and flexibility of services and helps to maintain lower overall costs for services. Other products may be available such as e-books that are individually priced as marked.
If you are unable to attend an appointment, we request that you provide at least 24 hours advanced notice through the online client portal. Since we are unable to use this time for another client for cancellations made with less than 24 hour notice or a scheduled appointment that is completely missed, you will be billed directly for the full session fee.
“Good Faith Estimate for Health Care Items and Services” Under the No Surprises Act
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- 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 800-633-4227.
