Fees & Insurance
For In-Office Individual or Family Counseling:
$190 to $225 per 50-minute session, payable at time of service.
Method of payment:
We are able to accept Visa and Mastercard.
Checks should be made out to CFCG.
We are “out of network” for all insurance companies. This means that none of the therapists at Child & Family Counseling Group take insurance.
Many of our clients, however, have PPO-types of insurance, and are reimbursed at least partially by their medical insurance company for our services.
Please be aware that medical insurance companies require a diagnosis of a mental disorder in order to reimburse for psychotherapy, limit the amount and quality of your care, and may make the intimate details of your life available to third parties. For these reasons, we do not accept direct payment from insurance companies.
We understand, though, that for some clients the financial benefits of insurance reimbursement outweigh the privacy concerns. We are happy to provide a bill which includes the diagnosis and treatment codes most insurance companies require, which can be submitted by you to your insurance company along with your claim form for reimbursement.
If you decide to submit a claim for reimbursement through your insurance, you will need to call your insurance company's Customer Service to determine what your insurance may cover. For your convenience, we have created a list of questions to ask your insurance company and collected a list of the most commonly requested information: Questions for My Insurance Company.
If you need to use your in-network coverage to pay for therapy, the best way to find an in-network therapist is to go to your insurance company for a list of in-network providers in your area. You can also try www.psychologytoday.com and www.camft.com.
