Rates And Insurance
Below are our out-of-pocket costs for psychotherapy services from our licensed therapists:
Intake sessions: $150
Subsequent psychotherapy sessions: $120
Intern sessions: $30-80 per session (sliding scale)
Copays or deductible costs should be paid within no more than a week of your session and/or before your next session, whichever comes first. This policy has some flexibility on a case by case basis that needs to be discussed with your therapist in advance.
All of our licensed therapists are in network with BCBS and its affiliates, and many of our therapists are in network with Cigna. Some therapists may be in network with other insurances individually, which is indicated on their bio page. Our therapists in training (interns and practicum students) are not in network with any insurance companies.
Depending on your insurance plan, the amount owed for sessions can range from close to the full cost if you have a deductible for mental health (often ranging from $100-$117), a copay (a flat fee for the session cost, usually ranging from $10-$50 a session), or a coinsurance (a percentage of the session cost, usually ranging from $10-$50 session).
You can find EOBs (Explanation of Benefits) in your insurance member portal or by calling the member services on your insurance card.
We recommend asking the following questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
- Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
- Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
- Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
- Does my plan require a preauthorization or referral from a primary care provider in order for my services to be covered?
If your chosen therapist is not in network with your insurance, you have the option of paying out of pocket without going through your insurance company at all. This means paying the full cost of the session upfront at the rates listed above.
HoneyB Wellness requires a credit card on file before your first session. Other forms of payment may be discussed on a case by case basis. A $10.00 service charge will be charged for any checks returned for any reason for special handling.
We understand that sometimes things come up! If you need to cancel or reschedule your session, please give us no less than 24 hours notice. This is necessary because a time commitment is made to you and is held exclusively for you. Having advanced notice gives us the opportunity to schedule other clients in the unused time.
Should you need to reschedule with less than 24 hours notice, rescheduling your session within the week may be possible without being charged the late cancellation fee ($120, out of pocket/not covered by insurance). This is per your therapist’s discretion and we encourage you to discuss this with them. Many of our therapists have flexible schedules and will do our best to ensure you are given the times you need!
You are welcome to look over all HoneyB’s client policies, which will be available on our website soon. Otherwise, please contact us for any additional questions you may have. We look forward to hearing from you!
