Insurance & Fees
In-Network Insurance (most BCBS plans)
I am an “in network provider” with many Blue Cross Blue Shield plans:
North Carolina State Health Plan
Please note I am not in network with Blue Home and Blue Value plans.
If you are covered by one of the plans listed above, I should be able to accept your insurance as an in-network provider. The amount you would pay each session is set by your insurance company and will be lower than my private pay rate. This amount may be different depending on whether or not you have met your plan’s yearly deductible.
If you have health insurance but are not covered by one of the Blue Cross Blue Shield plans listed above, you may be eligible to use your health plan’s “out-of-network” benefits.
When using out-of-network insurance coverage, you would pay the full private pay rate each session (see below). I could then submit the claims to your insurance company. Your insurance company would then decide whether or not (and by how much) they are willing to reimburse you. It is not guaranteed that your insurance company will approve the claim.
Learning About Your Insurance Coverage
If you are planning to use your insurance, I strongly encourage you to call the member support number on the back of your insurance card. A representative from your insurance company can explain how mental health therapy services are covered by your plan, whether or not you have met your yearly deductible, and what it would cost to see a mental health counselor.
My standard rate is $120 per 50-minute session ($150 for the first appointment).
You would pay a lower rate if you have BCBS insurance (see above).
I am able to meet with a limited number of clients by sliding scale (reduced fee) agreement. My sliding scale range is $60–$100 per session.
If we agree to sliding scale, you would pay the same amount each session.
I am not able to offer sliding scale to clients who have BCBS insurance.
