Insurance

You can make claims to your insurance to request reimbursement for a non-contracted provider.  Reimbursement is determined solely by your insurance company.  We will provide receipts with all information needed to request these reimbursements.

Here's why:

  • Using insurance usually costs clients more than seeing our therapists.  Why?  Because you likely will have to pay a higher rate until your deductible is met.  

  • Our sliding scale is usually less expensive.  Also, utilizing insurance means you will be required to have a life long diagnosis.  

  • Insurance companies maintain records in clearinghouses that can affect future insurance premiums and employment (such as military service and federal employment).  For example, recruits are disqualified if they have a history of taking medications for ADHD. 

  • Using insurance requires a diagnosis to receive reimbursement of services as “medically necessary”.  Particularly with couples, this diagnosis can have the effect of “blaming” one partner for the relationship difficulties. 

  • Insurance companies can also determine the number and frequency of sessions. 

Fees and Payment Policies

All initial and subsequent sessions are assessed on an honor system ability to pay scale, as follows:

  • Households making less than $100,000 (before taxes) pay $85

  • Households making between $100,000-$125,000 pay $100

  • Between $125,000 and $150,000 is  $125

  • Greater than $150,000 is $150

 

Sessions last 50 minutes.  Some people come once a week, others every two weeks, still others monthly.

 

A 24 hour cancellation is required for all sessions to avoid being charged the session rate.  Please do not ask for exceptions to this policy.  This allows other clients a time that they may not otherwise have available.  

 

Payment is due at time of service and the previous missed appointment fee will be due at the beginning of the following session.  Cash, personal checks, credit and debit cards are acceptable forms of payment.  Please write checks to CFH.  For returned checks, a $35 assessment fee will be charged, a 3% processing fee, and the cost of the previous and current session will be due at the next session, to be paid by debit or credit card or cash.
