Hours, Rates & Insurance

Rates:   


A typical private pay session will cost $125.00 for an intake appointment and $100.00 per hour for each session after. Payment for your session will be due at the time of service. We accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards. 


We do have a sliding scale program available for those experiencing a hardship and can be discussed at your consultation appointment. 

**Sliding scale will be dependent on your household income.


If you do not have insurance or would like to use your Employee Assistance Program (EAP), please contact our offices to ensure that we are in network with your EAP.  If you do not know your EAP, contact your  Human Resources office to get more information. 


Many services may be covered by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:


  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • Does my plan reimburse for out of network providers
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

**Anchor Family Counseling will be responsible for filing claims for our services; copay's are due at the time services are rendered. 



Session Information


Typical sessions are between 45 to 50 minutes in length. Our therapist will take a few minutes between clients to close session, check messages, take a short break, and prepare for next session.


We charge for our time when you require written correspondence. This is billed according to the amount of time utilized with a minimum fee of $35 for every half hour writing and reviewing the requested correspondence. This would include correspondence such as requested letters to other practitioners, disability applications, FMLA, legal documents,  etc. Insurance will not pay for correspondence and will be billed to you. Payment is expected when documentation is picked up or before sent. 


Telephone consults are also billed at regular rates. The first 5 minutes we consider a professional courtesy to our relationship; thereafter, the time is billed at regular rates to the nearest quarter hour. 


*Please send us an email or give us a call if you are interested in attending a group session or scheduling an individual appointment.
