INSURANCE REIMBURSEMENT: 

I am a participating provider for the Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) network, at least through 6/1/22.  I am adequately licensed/credentialed so clients with insurance other than BCBS can be reimbursed by insurance plans that provide for OUT OF NETWORK (OON) OUTPATIENT COUNSELING SERVICES.  Receipts will be provided for client-filed OON reimbursement claims upon request.

 

COURT-INVOLVED THERAPY: 

  • Rate: $250 per 60 minute session, required prior signed Agreement.

  • I DO NOT accept BCBS or any other insurance for court-ordered or recommended family counseling. 

  • I WILL NOT file an insurance claim for this service.  BCBS reimbursement will not be possible when I am the provider for this service.

 

COURT APPEARANCE (IF APPLICABLE): 

If I am subpoenaed by the Court to appear in your family’s case matter, you agree to pay the charge of $300/hour for my preparation or document production time, travel to and from time, and time waiting and/or testifying in court.
