My fees are comparable to other Licensed Clinical Psychologists in the San Francisco Bay Area. I accept clients who pay privately or “out-of-pocket” and also clients who wish to use their insurance.
I am an “In-Network” provider for Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Medicare, and UCB & UCSF SHIP Insurance Plans. With these insurance plans, you will only be responsible for paying any co-pay that may be due. Co-pays generally range from $10 to $40/ session depending on your insurance and the particular plan.
If you have a different type of insurance other than those listed above, please contact your insurance company directly to inquire about their reimbursement plans for “Out-Of-Network” providers. Generally, as an “Out-Of-Network” provider, a client pays me directly for the full session fee and then submits a statement to their insurance company for reimbursement for a percentage of that fee. Reimbursement to the client is often up to 80% of the hourly rate, but varies.
At times, I am able to offer a few reduced fee or sliding scale appointments based on financial need. If you are interested in starting therapy and need a reduced fee, feel free to contact me; I would be glad to talk with you about what may be possible.
If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.
