We currently accept insurance from the following providers:

Unfortunately at this time we are unable to:

  • Accept Medicaid and Medicare
  • File with insurance for Psychological Testing and Assessment
We do offer other payment options:

Self-Pay – If you would like to pursue a self-pay option to receive services, we ask for payment at the time of service and do not send out claims to insurances.  We accept cash, check and credit card payments  (Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover, Diners Club, UCB and Union Pay).

Sliding Fee Scale –  A sliding fee scale is available to all clients to apply for.  If you are experiencing a financial hardship or would like to see if you qualify, you may complete the Sliding Fee Scale Request Form and submit to see if you are eligible for a reduced rate.  Clients may be asked to provide a proof of financial hardship.

Before your Appointment

Things to consider before your first visit:

If you are using insurance, please call and verify your benefits prior to your appointment.  Some questions to ask the insurance may be:

  • What is my behavioral health coverage?
  • What is my deductible and where am I in meeting it?
  • What is my copay per visit?
  • Is there a limit on my sessions?

If you have any additional information such as hospitalization discharge paperwork, an IEP or 504 Plan, previous testing reports, feel free to bring that to your first appointment.
