Ideal for One person seeking mental health support
Payments can be made via credit/debit card.
Do you take insurance?
I do not take insurance. All services are considered private pay, and can be paid for using a credit/debit card.
Can you provide a Superbill?
As a licensed practitioner, I can provide you with a Superbill as an “Out-of-Network” provider for your PPO insurance. Superbills do not guarantee reimbursement of fees paid to the therapist, and you are still required to pay for services at the time services are rendered. Superbills do also require a DSM-5 diagnosis to be disclosed to your insurance company, and you are responsible to provide this documentation to your insurance provider and discuss reimbursement options. Couples therapy and preventative treatment are often not covered by insurance. Be sure to verify with your insurance prior to seeking treatment whether these types of counseling services will be reimbursed.
Why don’t you take insurance?
I find that clients appreciate the flexibility and privacy that comes with private pay services. Insurance companies often only provide coverage for specific mental health diagnoses and/or limit the number of sessions that will be covered. This means the mental health provider must divulge to the insurance company both the diagnosis being treated and the time/frequency in which the client is attending sessions. Due to the areas in which I specialize (i.e. couples counseling, life transitions, etc.), I often find that insurance companies will not fully cover these ongoing services. This often times leaves clients in difficult financial situations as they are then required to go back and pay for multiple sessions at once that they thought their insurance would cover. This also can lead to clients needing to switch therapists in the middle of their treatment to find a new provider within their network. This is often times very damaging to the client’s experience in therapy and is an additional barrier to getting the treatment they seek. Always check with your specific insurance provider via their customer care number to inquire about how to attain mental health services.
How can I utilize my insurance?
I recommend going directly through your insurance providers directory to find in-network providers. You can also utilize therapist directories to locate a therapist in your area that takes your insurance. Always check with your specific insurance provider via their customer care number to inquire about how to attain mental health services.
Can I receive a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) for services?
You have the right to receive a GFE prior to treatment. Learn more about GFE here.
Sliding Fee Scale
What is a Sliding Fee Scale?
Sliding Scales allow for healthcare professionals to adjust rates to accommodate clients with more financial constraints. A certain number of slots or clients will be offered a lower rate per session for a determined period of time.
How does Simplee Therapy utilize a Sliding Fee Scale?
I have a limited number of slots per week that are available for clients with additional financial needs. At the time of your initial consultation, you may ask to utilize the sliding scale, and I will inform you of availability to do so and expected fee per session. You will then sign off on a “Sliding Scale Agreement” outlining the adjusted fee per session and the amount of sessions it will be in place for.
What if you don’t have any sliding scale slots available?
If I am unable to offer a sliding scale agreement, I am always happy to refer you to low cost services throughout the community or trusted colleagues who may be able to accommodate your needs.
