Our regular fees are:
The initial evaluation period, which can last from one to three 60 minutes sessions, is billed at $225 per session.
If you do not have insurance coverage or do not want to use your benefits, and you cannot afford our regular fees, we offer a few sliding scale fee spots based on your income.
We charge our agreed upon hourly fee for other professional services you may need, though we will break down the hourly cost if we work for periods of less than one hour.
Other services include: report writing, telephone conversations other than for scheduling appointments, attendance at meetings with other professionals you have authorized, preparation of records or treatment summaries, and the time spent performing any other service you may request of me.
Clients will be given 30-day verbal notice prior to any change in fee structure.
We are an in-network provider for:
Many of our clients are out of network (have insurance with a company other than BCBS), and they pay us in full at the time of service. CCP then provides them with a monthly “superbill" (basically a statement with diagnostic information) that they provide to their insurance company for out of network reimbursement (usually between 60-80%). You would need to check on your particular policy to confirm what your out of network benefits are. Many clients end up out of pocket no more than their in-network copay.
We will check your BCBS benefits for you and submit claims to your BCBS insurance. Your co-payment is due at the time of service. Please check whether you have met your annual deductible before you schedule your first appointment if you plan to use your insurance benefits. If you have not met your deductible, you will be responsible for payments at the insurance contracted rate until you have met your deductible.
CCP believes that the mutual respect between client and therapist is a cornerstone of the work that we do.
In committing to the therapeutic process as a means of effecting change in your life, you are also making a financial commitment. CCP will always work with clients to address any financial concerns about fees and bills for services provided.
As a result of the pandemic, we have been unable to adhere to our usual protocol of collecting our fees at the time of service. In order to continue with this necessary protocol, CCP's billing agency, DAS Billing Solutions will begin charging all of CCP's clients' credit cards immediately upon processing of their claims with BCBS (or immediately after a session is reported to DAS if client is Self-Pay, Out-of-Network, or Sliding Scale).
Accordingly, all current and future clients must furnish CCP with a credit card number to be kept securely on file. The link to upload a new credit card form can be found here.
