You might want to pay for therapy privately if:
you don’t want a mental health diagnosis on your record (insurance companies require this before they will pay)
you don’t want the insurance company to dictate how your therapy is done
you have a high deductible– your insurance company will require you to pay the full session fee until your deductible is met. (And they can still dictate how your therapy is done while you are paying!)
If your insurance allows you to submit medical bills from out-of-network providers, I will be happy to provide you with that special statement, called a superbill, on a monthly basis. I cannot guarantee any reimbursement and I do not assist with filing claims beyond providing the superbill. However, if you’d like information on a company that will help you for a very modest fee, read this.
I am currently a participating provider for Kansas Medicaid insurance plans only. You may have noticed that my primary office location is in Missouri. I am approved as a provider for Kansas Medicaid at both my Belton, Missouri and Overland Park, Kansas offices.
If you have Medicare, please contact me for my special Medicare rate.
Rates and Payments
Aside from Kansas Medicaid, I am a private pay provider. As mentioned above, the advantages of this for you are that you do not have to provide the insurance company with a diagnosis and your insurance company cannot dictate your treatment. I will provide a “superbill” on a monthly basis for those who wish to submit their expenses to insurance for possible reimbursement.
I am mindful that therapy can be a financial sacrifice for people. I’ve paid out of pocket for my own family. Therapy is an investment in your health and quality of life. My rate is $90 per 50-minute session.
Please contact me for answers to your specific questions. You may text me at (816) 226-4678.
For payments, I accept:
- debit and credit (Visa, Mastercard)
HSAs (health savings accounts) and FSA (flexible spending accounts)
Reduced Fee Services
For people who have no insurance or who have a policy with a ridiculously high deductible, I offer sessions for $30-60, based on income. For more information and to see if I have any openings, please text me at (816) 226-4678.
